Jorginho's agent said a return to Serie A is not out of the question despite the 27-year-old impressing so far during his second season at Chelsea .

Jorginho scored a penalty during Italy's 2-0 win over Greece on Saturday, a win which confirmed their place at next year's European Championship finals.

After joining the Blues along with Maurizio Sarri from Napoli in 2018 in a deal worth around £50m Jorginho suffered a difficult first season in England, in which he was regularly booed by supporters for failing to perform at the levels expected of him.

This season, however, his form has improved, and he has helped Frank Lampard's side win their last four games in a row in all competitions.

Speaking to Radio Sportiva after Italy's win, his agent Joao Santos expressed his happiness with his client's recent form.

"It has certainly been a positive year for Jorginho," Santos said. "He is doing well for the Nazionale and can take part in the Euros. He always converts his penalties, I am very happy for him, as he is working so hard every day.

"Naturally, it was not positive when Giampiero Ventura was the Italy coach, but he has slowly become first choice in that midfield.

"It certainly helps that he plays for Chelsea, because it's a very intense style of football in England and he learned a lot both from Maurizio Sarri and Frank Lampard."

When asked about Jorginho's future, however, Santos appeared to suggest he could be open to returning to Italy, and refused to rule out a move in the near future.

He added: "I think Jorginho can do very well at the Euros and, why not, also at the next World Cup. As for a return to Serie A, anything is possible, and he will always feel the desire to come back home.”
