Chelsea star Jorginho responds to transfer rumours amid Juventus links

Jorginho admits he is "focused" on getting Chelsea into the Champions League while acknowledging there is speculation over his future.

The Italian has only been at Chelsea for two seasons but has been linked with a move to Juventus.

Jorginho followed former boss Maurizio Sarri to west London but the tactician returned to his homeland after just one year.

The midfielder has always been key to the possession-based system Sarri looks to play which led to rumours of another reunion.

But the 28-year-old maintains his sole goal in to ensure the Blues are at Europe's top table.

"I just have to stay focused on when the team needs me," he told the club's official website.

"There have been rumours but I haven’t heard anything, I am just focusing on finishing the season well with Chelsea and qualifying for the Champions League."

Jorginho has plenty of competition in midfield with the likes of N'Golo Kante, Matteo Kovacic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek all eyeing starting berths.

The emergence of Billy Gilmour has added another name to the mix with the youngster getting the nod in Chelsea's 3-2 win at Crystal Palace.

But Frank Lampard insists his team selection at Selhurst Park has no reflection on who he wants to keep at Stamford Bridge.

He said: “It doesn’t mean anything for the future of Jorginho, Gilmour or anyone else in the team, or on the impact that Jorginho had on the team in calming the team down with his passes at the end.

"I know he can give us that and he will continue to give us that.”

Jorginho has made 38 appearances for the Blues in all competitions.
