Chelsea want to sign Premier League star after deciding to let Jorginho leave
It has been claimed that Chelsea are looking at possibly signing Yves Bissouma after reportedly deciding to let Jorginho leave the club
Jorginho has enjoyed a superb couple of years for club and country, starring in Chelsea’s Champions League win and Italy’s European Championships triumph in 2021, with his performances earning him a Ballon d’Or nomination.
However, there has been alot of speculation that he could depart the club at the end of the season, and a move back to Italy has been mooted for the midfielder, meaning that Thomas Tuchel would need an immediate replacement.
And it has been claimed that Chelsea have decided that they will not hand Jorginho that new contract, with his current deal running out at the end of 2023, and would rather sell him this transfer window, then let him leave for nothing.
And that has led to constant reports in the media which have suggested that Chelsea are very much interested in a possible deal for the impressive Bissouma
Recent reports have claimed that despite the fact Brighton want to keep hold of the midfielder – they cannot stop him from leaving if he wants to go and will accept a fee of around £30M in the window
Now IcFootballnews has learned that Chelsea will open talks with Bissouma about a move to Stamford Bridge once the takeover of the club is announced – and Jorginho has left the club
Jorginho has been a big part of the club – but it has been claimed that Chelsea believe he no longer wants to be at the club and will allow him to return to Italian football
Bissouma is gifted in a technical sense, but it’s his positional awareness and tenacity that truly elevates him to the status of one of the best in the country right now. He is a tidy passer of the ball that has the ability to run box-to-box
Jorginho is loved by many Chelsea fans, but he is coming to that stage of his career where he will want money more than success, and that could be a problem for the club
So the news that they have decided to let him leave means that players like Bissouma could step up and make a real name for themselves for one of the big clubs
He is ready for that next stage of his career and he may offer more than what Jorginho currently gives Chelsea
