Arsenal midfielder Jorginho could be set for a return to Serie A this summer.

The Brazilian-born maestro won two trophies during his five seasons at Napoli before moving to Chelsea in 2018.

With his contract scheduled to expire at the end of the season, the Euro 2020 winner is being linked with the Partenopei, Lazio and Juventus, according to the Evening Standard.

Jorginho, 32, worked under Biancocelesti boss Maurizio Sarri in both Naples and West London.

Traditional Italian giants Juve are undergoing a rebuild under Max Allegri, currently sitting second in the table behind runaway leaders Inter Milan.

Agent Joao Santos recently told Italian media: "He'd suit Lazio more, for the presence of coach [Maurizio] Sarri who already knows his characteristics very well.

"But also Juve, who have a great director of sport like Cristiano Giuntoli, who he spent many years with at Napoli."

In total, Jorginho has made 25 appearances for the Gunners this term, although the Hellas Verona academy graduate has only started six of their 26 Premier League games.
