Stan Collymore believes Jorginho is the perfect Chelsea FC signing to fit Maurizio Sarri’s system.

The Blues signed the Italy international in a £57m deal from Serie A giants Napoli in the summer transfer window.

Chelsea FC beat Manchester City Jorginho’s signature in a coup of the west London side ahead of the new season.

The Italy international struggled in a 2-0 loss to the defending Premier League champions in the Community Shield.

However, Jorginho scored on his Premier League debut in a 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town at John Smith’s Stadium.

The summer signing has helped Sarri’s side to record successive Premier League victories over Arsenal and Newcastle United to keep pace with leaders Liverpool FC.

Former Liverpool FC striker Collymore talked up Jorginho’s impact on the Chelsea FC team following his move to Stamford Bridge this summer.

“Jorginho is everything Chelsea needed in their first season under Maurizio Sarri,” Collymore told Daily Mirror.

“He knows exactly what the former Napoli boss expects of his players, and he’s influencing the rest of the Blues team with his incredible work rate – he covered more ground than N’Golo Kante this weekend – and class.”

Chelsea FC finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last season to miss out on a spot in the Champions League for the second time in three campaigns.

The Blues appointed Sarri as Antonio Conte’s replacement in the summer despite Chelsea FC winning the FA Cup thanks to a 1-0 win over Manchester United last term.
