Chelsea reject Jorginho swap deal, Lampard visioned Pulisics future with Chelsea

Chelsea ‘reject Jorginho, Miralem Pjanic swap deal’

Chelsea have reportedly turned down an offer from Juventus which would have seen Jorginho join the Italian champions and Miralem Pjanic move in the opposite direction.

The Old Lady continue to be credited with an interest in Jorginho, who has scored seven times in 37 appearances for Frank Lampard’s side during the 2019-20 campaign.

According to Calciomercato, the Serie A giants offered Chelsea the chance to sign Pjanic as part of a swap for Jorginho, but the Premier League club turned down the approach.

Barcelona have also been credited with an interest in Pjanic, who has been strongly linked with a move away from Juve in recent months despite still being a key player for the club.

Boss Frank Lampard has backed Christian Pulisic to make the difference in the race for top four after Chelsea’s comeback win at Aston Villa.

Forward Pulisic and Olivier Giroud turned the game around in 121 seconds after the break as the visitors survived a scare to secure a 2-1 win.

Chelsea dominated only to fall behind to Kortney Hause’s opener just before half time on Sunday.

They recovered to cement their position in fourth, moving five points ahead of Manchester United and Wolves.

It was Pulisic’s first appearance since January after an abductor muscle injury and Lampard feels the USA international is ready to make an impact again.

“He will start games for us, of course, and I think he’s going to be a big player for us, not just in this run-in but going forward,” he said, after his 100th game as a manager.

“He was hungry. I know that and I felt for him, as I felt for the players with long-term injuries.

“The ability he’s got to arrive in the box, it’s a big thing, I’ve spoken about it with him all season.

“It’s the difference between being a very good player off the side, an attacking player, or the players at the real top level of the game that arrive and score in the six-yard box and hit numbers yearly.

“I really think Christian can do that, so I was really pleased with him, the impact he made when he came on.”
