TMW: Roma interested in Chelsea midfielder Jorginho

Roma are considering an approach for Chelsea midfielder Jorginho, according to Tuttomercatoweb.

Jorginho has been linked with Juventus, but the dismissal of Maurizio Sarri as coach appears to have cooled their interest.

And fresh from a takeover that will ease their financial problems, Roma are set to launch their new project.

Roma’s chief executive Guido Fienga has flown to London meet with Ryan Friedkin, the son of new owner Dan Friedkin.

The two will discuss the summer market with Jorginho’s name expected to be one of the names talked about.

Jorginho is a player that everyone likes within the corridors of power at Roma, including head coach Paulo Fonseca.

Diawara out, Jorginho in?

Amadou Diawara will need to leave the capital club before any move for Jorginho can be made, but he is not short of interest.

Arsenal are especially keen on Diawara, who joined the capital club from Napoli last year.

Speaking of Napoli, they are interested in Roma midfielder Jordan Veretout, which could be another opening for Jorginho to arrive.

Jorginho has lost prominence at Chelsea since Maurizio Sarri was replaced by Frank Lampard.

He did start in Chelsea’s last six games of the season, including their FA Cup final against Arsenal, but is reportedly available for transfer.

The Brazil-born Italy international is admired in Serie A from his days at Napoli, which led to Chelsea beating Man City to his signing in 2018.
