Reports in Italy claims, Chelsea are ready to swap Jorginho for a former Arsenal midfielder.

According to Italian media outlet Calciomercato, Chelsea are interested in signing £45million-rated former Arsenal midfielder Ismael Bennacer from AC Milan.

Jorginho has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge, only featuring post-lockdown after injuries to N’Golo Kante and Billy Gilmour and the Blues are reportedly willing to offer Jorginho in a swap deal for Bennacer.

Bennacer was an Arsenal player between 2015 and 2017 but made just one appearance for the Gunners. His only appearance for Arsenal came in a 3-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday back in October 2015.

The Algerian international left Arsenal for Empoli in 2017 before earning a £14.5million move to AC Milan last summer – where he has put himself back on the radar of Europe’s biggest clubs.

Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and Manchester City are also interested in the 22 year old midfielder.
