After back-to-back games of just sitting on the bench, Jorginho was back in the starting lineup last night, as Chelsea took on Tottenham Hotspur in the fourth round of the League Cup.

That alone however is unlikely to stop the recent rumors that have been swirling around the 28-year-old midfielder, which claim that he’s the target of clubs such as Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain. But Jorginho’s agent, João Santos, who used to be quite fond of playing up the Juventus rumors back when they still employed former Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri, has chosen not to do that this time however when asked about it yesterday.

“Jorginho still has a 3-year contract with Chelsea, this one plus 2 more. I heard a lot about Arsenal and PSG in the last few days, but the reality is that so far no official offer has arrived for the player.

“The market closes on October 5th, but the more time passes the more difficult it becomes to make such an important operation. At the moment, therefore, I can say that it is only rumours."
