French football agent Yvan Le Mee has suggested that Juventus are keen on signing two midfielders.
The Serie A giants’ bank balance has been severely compromised following the COVID-19 pandemic, however, despite their precarious finances, the Old Lady remains keen to recruit some of Europe’s best talent.
Le Mee, who represents over 30 professional players, has been speaking about Juventus’ potential summer plans and how they include Monaco’s Aurelien Tchouameni, as well as Chelsea’s Joringho.
Speaking to TuttoSport, Le Mee said: “Watch out for Jorginho, who can become an opportunity given the Chelsea situation. But the best shot for Juventus would always be Tchouameni: he is a phenomenon.”
Joringho, 30, has been linked with a move back to Italy for several seasons and with just one year left on his deal, as well as the uncertainty the Blues now find themselves in, it is no surprise to see the same links resurfacing.
Speaking about his client at the end of last year, agent Joao Santos, as quoted by Football Italia, said: “He has a contract with Chelsea until 2023. Obviously, it would be a dream for him to return to Italy, hopefully after winning the World Cup.
“We’ll have to see what the market looks like in a couple of years and what the other situations are.”
Although Italy will not win the World Cup this winter after failing to qualify, it is fair to assume that Jorginho’s long-term future probably will be away from Chelsea.
There has been very little talk of renewing his deal and with time against him, as well as the Blues likely to want to avoid losing him for free next year, this summer could be the perfect time that the Euros 2020 winner moves on in search of a new challenge.
