Chelsea midfielder Jorginho would reportedly be open to a return to the Italian side, Napoli, should he leave the Blues.
The Italy international joined the West London club in 2018 from Napoli under then manager, Maurizio Sarri.
The 29-year-old has in recent weeks been linked with a return to the Diego Armando Maradona-based club to link up with Sarri who has been tipped to replace under-fire boss Gennaro Gattuso.
And speaking on Jorginho's future at Stamford Bridge, the player's agent, Jorge Santos, has revealed his client would consider re-joining Napoli if an offer is tabled.
Santos, however, went on to admit the midfielder is enjoying life under Thomas Tuchel, and he remains a key squad member for the German tactician. Mail Online quoted Santos saying:
"There are many rumours about that because he did so well at Napoli. It's a special moment for him. He is an important player for Chelsea now.
"However, he is an Italy international, and we are thinking about a return to Serie A if he leaves the Blues. If Napoli will make an offer, we'll evaluate it. He had a great time in Naples, and he has many friends over there."
During his spell in Napoli, Jorginho made over 150 appearances for the Serie A giants, winning the Coppa Italia in his first season with them after his arrival from Hellas Verona.
The Italian, who has already made 125 appearances for the Blues has more than two years left on his current deal with the Premier League side.
And he appears to be enjoying life under Tuchel, forming a huge part of the manager's bright start to life with Chelsea with whom he is still unbeaten.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Chelsea will offer Jorginho in exchange for Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen with an extra £18miliion, reports claim.
The former Tottenham midfielder is looking at a return to the Premier League after leaving the London club for Serie A.
Manchester United, Wolves, Leicester and Arsenal have also tabled their interest in bringing back the Danish star to England.
