express: Chelsea have been offered three Juventus players by Maurizio Sarri as the Italian seeks a reunion with Jorginho this summer, reports say.
The former Blues boss is determined to reunite with the midfielder, who he coached at both Napoli and during his time at Stamford Bridge earlier in his career. And while Miralem Pjanic has turned down a move to west London, Juventus remain keen on securing Jorginho’s signature.
Previously they’d planned to offer Chelsea the chance to sign Miralem Pjanic, who has been deemed surplus to requirements over in Turin.
The Bosnia international turned down a move to the Premier League, though, with Barcelona instead his preferred destination.
And Catalan newspaper Sport say Juventus have offered Chelsea a pick of three players instead as they look to get a deal done.
It’s claimed that Douglas Costa is one of them.
The Brazil international has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United amid uncertainty over Paul Pogba’s long-term future at Old Trafford.
But he could end up moving to Chelsea instead – particularly given Lampard’s need for a new winger.
The Blues are primed to lose veterans Willian and Pedro at the end of the season and Costa, who has previously played for Bayern Munich in Europe, could move as a replacement.
Juventus have also put the name of Federico Bernardeschi on the table.
And Adrien Rabiot is another who could move to Stamford Bridge, with the France international failing to settle in Turin.
