Chelsea FC are keen on a move to sign Jorginho ahead of Manchester City this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Blues are pondering a move to sign Jorginho ahead of the Citizens, who were thought to be the favourites to land the 26-year-old ahead of next season.

The same report says that Chelsea FC are being credited with an interest in signing the attacker from Napoli, despite Manchester City’s apparent strong desire to land Jorginho this summer.

The story suggests that Chelsea FC’s desire to bring Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri to Stamford Bridge could be linked to their potential move for Jorginho.

Chelsea FC are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as the Blues look to try and assemble a team capable of winning the Premier League title next season.

However, the west London side have not yet signed any new players as the clock ticks down on the start of the new campaign.

Chelsea FC ended up in fifth place in the Premier League table last season as they missed out on Champions League qualification for next term.
