Jorginho has insisted that he is “focused” on the Blues amid the speculation surrounding his future.
The Italy international is believed to be a leading transfer target for Serie A champions Juventus, with Old Lady boss Maurizio Sarri thought to be keen to work with the central midfielder for a third time.
The 28-year-old has been a key player for Chelsea this season, contributing seven goals and two assists in 38 appearances, although he has only played 10 minutes of Premier League football since the restart.

Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz chelsea transfer deal linked to Jorginho future
Chelsea are reportedly holding out for Juventus to make a move for Jorginho in order to fund the signing of Bayer Leverkusen attacker Kai Havertz.
The Blues are rumoured to be leading the race for the Germany international as several other interested clubs have been put off by Leverkusen’s large asking price.
A bid of at least £70m will be required to land Havertz and, according to The Mirror, Chelsea need to raise money before tabling an offer.
The report indicates that Jorginho could therefore hold the key to a transfer going through for Havertz, with Juventus supposedly interested in the outcast midfielder.
Juve have already moved to bring in Arthur from Barcelona ahead of next season, but Maurizio Sarri is said to be a big fan of Jorginho, having previously worked with him at Napoli and Chelsea.
Frank Lampard has bolstered his attacking ranks with the signings of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner, who have joined for a combined £85m.
