Jorginho will be staying with Chelsea during this summer's transfer window despite interest from leading European clubs, according to his agent.

Jorginho will be staying with Chelsea during this summer's transfer window despite interest from "the main teams in Europe", according to the midfielder's agent Joao Santos.

The 29-year-old was in impressive form for the Blues during the 2020-21 campaign, scoring eight times and contributing two assists in 43 appearances in all competitions.

According to Jorginho's agent, a number of European sides are interested in the Italy international, but he is only focused on helping his country win the European Championship.

"Jorginho is very well, he has won the Europa League and the Champions League, and now the goal is to win the Euros," Santos told Radio Marte. "He is focused on this and wants to play all the remaining seven games of the European Championship.

"Obviously, he won the Champions League, and therefore there are enquiries from the main teams in Europe. In my opinion he'll stay at Chelsea next year. The next goal is to make the World Cup in Qatar with Italy - by staying at Chelsea he's great chances to do so."

Barcelona have recently been credited with an interest in Jorginho amid suggestions that the Catalan giants want to bring a new central midfielder to Camp Nou.
