While Jorginho and Miralem Pjanic have been linked in such a move with the former said to be valued at €40m, that isn’t the only potential deal that could be found between the two clubs.
It’s added that while Emerson Palmieri and Olivier Giroud are also of interest to Bianconeri, Blues could set their sights on Federico Bernardeschi, Douglas Costa, Alex Sandro and Adrien Rabiot.
With that in mind, there appear to be lots for the two clubs to discuss moving forward, and it remains to be seen if it leads to any agreements being reached.
Palmieri and Sando would arguably make the most sense as it’s a like-for-like swap at left-back, while it stays to be seen if Pjanic-Jorginho is still on the cards. Maurizio Sarri wants to bolster the midfield during the summer transfer window.
While the Old Lady will hope to successfully defend their crown when the campaign gets back underway on June 20, Frank Lampard’s men will be desperate to keep hold of their Champions League qualification spot.
In turn, both sides have more important immediate concerns on their plate, but it has been suggested that they will have much to talk about for the summer transfer window too.
