Player’s Mum drops Chelsea transfer hint on Instagram

The mother of Napoli midfielder Jorginho has supposedly just started following Chelsea on Instagram, as noticed by a user on Twitter.

This follows Tuttosport linking Jorginho with a potential transfer to Stamford Bridge this summer after plenty of speculation over his future in recent times.

One of the finest midfielders in Serie A, it certainly looks like the Italy international could be ready to make the step up to a bigger club.

As noted by the report above, Jorginho could be targeted as a key signing for Maurizio Sarri, who coached him at Napoli to good effect.

While Antonio Conte remains in charge at Chelsea for the time being, Sarri has been repeatedly linked by a variety of sources as a top target to take over the Blues next season.

Jorginho’s Mum now following Chelsea on Instagram could be taken as something of a hint that the report from Tuttosport has something to it, with CFC clearly needing to upgrade their current midfield options.

Nemanja Matic was sold last summer in what looks a huge mistake, especially as he has since been replaced by a host of flop signings in Tiemoue Bakayoko, Danny Drinkwater and Ross Barkley in the middle of the park.

Jorginho’s performances suggest he’d be a big improvement in a key area for Chelsea as they look to break back into the top four in 2018/19.
