Jorginho’s agent has insisted that he has never had any contact with Chelsea FC, despite conceding that the Blues are an “important” club.

Chelsea FC are likely to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as the west London side look to build a squad capable of winning the Premier League next season.

Jorginho has long been linked with a move to the Premier League and has been touted as a target for both Manchester clubs, as well as Chelsea FC.

Now, the midfielder’s agent Joao Santos has revealed that Chelsea FC could be an interesting destination for the Napoli star, who has been earning praise for his performances in Serie A lately.

Speaking to Calcio Napoli, Santos said: “Chelsea have never had contact with me so I cannot talk, they’ve never called me.

“They’re an important and interesting club – like Barcelona and Real Madrid – but they’ve never called me.

“I’ll be in Italy this week. In the transfer market things can mature in 15 hours or in 15 days.”

Chelsea FC are bound to be on the lookout for a number of signings this summer, despite the uncertainty surrounding Antonio Conte’s future at the club.

The Blues finished fifth in the Premier League this season as they missed out on qualification for the Champions League, but they did end the campaign on a high by beating Manchester United in the FA Cup final earlier this month.

Chelsea FC won the Premier League title in Conte’s first campaign at the club last term.
