Chelsea midfielder Jorginho appears to be going nowhere after becoming a favourite under Thomas Tuchel.
The Italy international was linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge during Frank Lampard’s reign with the midfielder in and out of the Chelsea starting XI.
But since Tuchel‘s arrival in late January, Jorginho has been a stalwart, starting 10 of the 11 games the German head coach has taken charge of so far.
And that is, perhaps, why Jorginho is so happy at Chelsea, recently dismissing talk of a move away from Stamford Bridge and asserting that this season has his full focus.
“Dude, I’ll tell you the truth. At the moment, how am I going to think about the future two years from now, having what I still have to play this season. Then the Euro is coming,” Jorginho told TNT Sports.
“So, honestly, there’s no way to think ahead. In fact, I’m very happy here. I’m really happy here. So I don’t think about anything else either. Now, at the moment, there’s no reason to think about what will happen in two years, for example.”
Jorginho’s agent Joao Santos doesn’t particularly help with the transfer speculation, often stirring the pot when it comes to Jorginho.

The 29-year-old is under contract until 2023 having joined on a deal worth just over £50million from Napoli in 2018, since racking up 89 league appearances for Chelsea.
He has regularly been linked with a move back to Italy, but it seems that for now, he will remain at Chelsea with some talk he could even sign a new contract in the coming months.
