Jorginho won’t be the outstanding signing that Chelsea FC are expecting, ESPN FC pundit Stewart Robson has claimed.

The Italy international was initially linked with a move to Liverpool FC in the 2017-18 Premier League season.

Jorginho was then touted as a potential target for defending Premier League champions Manchester City.

The Brazilian-born star appeared to be on the brink of a move to The Etihad before Chelsea FC trumped Jorginho’s offer.

The 26-year-old completed a £57m deal to Chelsea FC from Napoli to follow in the footsteps of Maurizio Sarri.

Jorginho struggled in Chelsea FC’s 2-0 loss to Manchester City in the Community Shield at Wembley.

However, the Italian star made amends with a penalty strike in a 3-0 victory over Huddersfield Town in the Premier League last weekend.

Former Arsenal star Robson is still unsure whether Jorginho will ultimately prove a successful Chelsea FC signing.

“I don’t think he is the outstanding player that people expect him to be for Chelsea,” Robson told ESPN FC.

“He hasn’t got great athleticism. I am not sure he is the player Chelsea think he is going to be.”

Chelsea FC were 1-0 winners against Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley last term following Eden Hazard’s winner.
