Napoli midfielder Jorginho has reportedly arrived in London to undergo his medical with Chelsea ahead of joining the club.
Jorginho was initially thought to be heading to Manchester City, but Chelsea have swooped in at the final moment to secure his services. This is presumably due to the influential role he has played under Maurizio Sarri during their time at the Stadio Olimpico.
Jorginho may have seen the light, but this time around, it was us that bought his flight. According to Sky Sports, he has now landed in London to complete his proposed move to Chelsea.
Sky Sports believe that the deal is worth around £57M. That would make Jorginho the second most expensive player ever to pull on a Chelsea shirt, narrowly behind Alvaro Morata.
The ambition shown in our pursuit of Jorginho bodes well ahead of what could prove to be a defining last few weeks of the transfer window. Let’s hope there’s more to come.
