JUVENTUS manager Maurizio Sarri could raid former club Chelsea for Italian internationals Jorginho and Emerson, according to reports.
The 60-year-old signed a two-year contract with the Serie A giants after the two clubs agreed a compensation package to free him from Stamford Bridge.
If the move were to happen, it would be the third club where Sarri and Jorginho have been together.
Sarri convinced Chelsea to part with £52million to bring Jorginho to SW6 from Napoli last summer.
The Brazil-born Italy international is a crucial part of ‘Sarri-ball’ and registered more touches and passes than any other player in the Premier League last season.
However, the 27-year-old also failed to register a single assist and, like Sarri, has been a target for anger and criticism from the stands.
Sarri’s favouritism of the midfielder saw him rarely dropped, despite poor form, and also led to the sale of fans’ favourite Cesc Fabregas in January.
In fact, Fabregas slammed the manager for his preferential treatment of Jorginho.
The Spaniard said: “I was at Chelsea and I could have renewed my contract and stayed there but a new coach came with a player that for him was like his son.”
Emerson, 24, won Sarri’s trust over the course of the season.
Marcos Alonso had been first-choice for most of the campaign before the left-back won his place and finished the season as the starter.
Emerson, another Brazil-born Italy international, previously played in Serie A for Roma.
