Napoli midfielder Jorginho was expected to undergo a medical with Chelsea on Thursday as the Italian star is looking to leave the side this summer.
The Italy international, who has been strongly linked with Manchester City over past few months, is set to complete his £57m move to Stamford Bridge on this Friday.
However, former Arsenal midfielder and current ESPN pundit Stewart Robson has claimed that Jorginho wouldn’t fit in at Chelsea.
“They play attacking football,” Robson said when asked about the prospect of Jorginho moving to Stamford Bridge. “I can’t see Jorginho going there.”
“Sarri is talking about him being a holding midfielder, but they have the best one in the world in N’Golo [Kante]. So I’m not sure where he fits in!”
Jorginho, who spent four years at Stadio San Paolo, has promised Napoli fans that he will greet Maurizio Sarri for them when he arrives at West London.
“I will miss Naples very much after four years spent here. I remain forever bonded to this city,” he told Calcio Napoli 24.
Asked about working with his former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri again, Jorginho replied: “I will greet him for all of you.”
If the deal goes through, Jorginho, who turns 27 at the end of this year, will be Chelsea’s first signing of the summer.
