PREMIER LEAGUE: Chelsea midfielder Jorginho offered a new contract amid interest from Barcelona


Chelsea have offered Jorginho a new contract amid speculation that he is being sought by several of Europe’s top clubs.

Jorginho could become a free agent at the end of the season, which would be an attractive prospect for several clubs, but according to his agent, an offer from Chelsea is on the table.

His agent, Joao Santos, has revealed that the 31-year-old will first discuss new terms with Chelsea to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge. “His contract expires on June 30,” Santos told Tuttomercato. “We have a renewal proposal from Chelsea and we will give it priority.”

Jorginho will not lack for suitors if he decides to leave Chelsea in the January window or for free in the summer.

Barcelona and Juventus are reportedly keen to start talks with Jorginho in January, while Premier League side Newcastle United have also been heavily linked with the former Napoli man.

Napoli have also been credited with an interest in bringing Jorginho back to the Serie A leaders, with Santos suggesting a return is a possibility if an approach is made.

“Napoli was Jorginho’s home and there he is appreciated a lot. For us it is a special club, so we would be happy with any interest. But for the moment, Napoli have not contacted us,” he said.

Jorginho has played 20 times for Chelsea this season and only Kai Havertz (21) and Mason Mount (22) have played more, with 16 of those appearances starting.
