Jorginho’s agent has confirmed the midfielder is ‘100 per cent staying at Chelsea’ this summer, despite reports linking him with a move back to Italy.
The 29-year-old followed Maurizio Sarri from Napoli to west London in 2018 and has become a key player for the Blues since his arrival.
Jorginho has impressed under new manager Thomas Tuchel and perfectly fits his possession-based style that has the German still unbeaten after more than two months at Stamford Bridge.

But recent reports have claimed Jorginho could be tempted by a move back to Napoli, especially if former boss Sarri is chosen to replace the under pressure Gennaro Gattuso.
However his agent, Joao Santos, has shut down those rumours by insisting his client is going nowhere.
In an interview with Tuttomercato, he said: ‘He has a two-year contract with Chelsea. He is thinking about playing in the European Championships and then the World Cup in Qatar.
‘He will remain at Chelsea, one hundred per cent’.
Asked if Jorginho will renew his contract at Stamford Bridge, Santos added: ‘We will talk about it in a few months.’

It comes after Santos revealed last month that his client would consider a return to Napoli if an offer came in, but admitted he is an ‘important’ part of Tuchel’s setup at Stamford Bridge.
The Italy international – who still has more than two years on his current deal at Stamford Bridge – has scored 16 goals for the Premier League side, and helped the club win the 2019 Europa League title.
And he certainly appears to be enjoying Tuchel’s style of play as opposed to former boss Frank Lampard’s.
‘The coach wants us having control of the game, playing from behind, even when the pressure comes,’ he said recently.
‘So, for me, it’s a good way to play football that I like and enjoy, and I think it’s better for my characteristics than playing long balls and second balls.’
