Jorginho's agent has confirmed the Chelsea star is keeping a close eye on Maurizio Sarri's movements and could join him at his next club.
The Blues' vice-captain was a key component in the Sarri-ball style implemented by his former manager at Stamford Bridge after working well together at Napoli.
Sarri left Chelsea for Juventus in 2019, but was sacked in August after just one season despite leading them to the Serie A title.
He is still without a club, while Jorginho has been a regular under current Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.
But the midfielder's agent, Joao Santos, has admitted his client is open to reuniting with Sarri depending where he goes next.

"He’s very happy with Frank Lampard and Chelsea can do even better than last season," Santos told Calciomercato .
"Almost all the Italy players are in Serie A, as it’s an important league, but his journey took him to London.
"If Maurizio Sarri had remained, perhaps he’d have joined Juventus.
"Jorginho has a personal and professional bond with the coach that is very strong. We’re waiting to see where Sarri goes, and if it’s a big club in Italy, Jorginho could follow him."

So far this season Jorginho has made 11 appearances under Lampard, and is under contract until 2023.
Recent reports even suggested his deal could be extended by a further year via an option in his current agreement, which would also earn him a wage rise.
It would be a surprise move by Chelsea if they were to take up the option, particularly as they were open to selling the 28-year-old in the summer, though not to direct rivals Arsenal, who were interested in a loan deal.
