Chelsea on verge of €70m signing, player in london today to complete move



Napoli midfielder Jorginho is reportedly in London to complete his proposed big-money move to Chelsea.

Jorginho signing for Manchester City appeared to be a foregone conclusion. He, alongside Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez, was top of the champions’ summer transfer wish-list.

However, reports have claimed that Chelsea are now set to hijack the move. An eagle-eyed Twitter user also spotted that Jorginho’s mother had followed Chelsea on Instagram.

We didn’t think it possible, but Chelsea may well have successfully turned this deal around in their favour. Jorginho is now thought to be closing in on a switch to Stamford Bridge.

According to Napolipiu, Jorginho is in London today to complete his move to Chelsea. The deal is thought to be worth between €65M-€70M, with Chelsea bettering Man City’s initial offer.

Though we await a more credible source reporting this same information, we can’t help to get a little bit excited about the prospect of Jorginho lining up alongside N’Golo Kante…
