Chelsea signing Jorginho hopes to be ‘a good fit’ in the Premier League

New Chelsea signing Jorginho has said he is hoping to be ‘a good fit’ in the Premier League, but doesn’t believe that his style is similar to anything that is currently seen in the English top flight.

The Italy international completed a £57 million move to Chelsea last week, choosing to continue his working relationship with new Blues boss Maurizio Sarri, rather than work with Pep Guardiola at Man City.

Jorginho was an integral figure under Sarri at Napoli last season, with the Neapolitans picking up an incredible 91 points, but still failing to win the Serie A title. They did win plenty of plaudits for their attacking, and dynamic style of play, and the Brazil born midfielder is hoping for the same kind of success together in the Premier League:

“Today everyone watches the Premier League so I have watched plenty of it in my time. It is a fantastic league, the best in the world I think,” Jorginho said on the Chelsea website.

“Perhaps my style of play is not something that is seen in England, I really hope that it is a good fit for the game over here and I will certainly be doing everything I can to make sure it works out.

“I like playing just outside of my own penalty box, the player who receives the ball and organises the game.”

Jorginho added: “Since I was little I was someone who always enjoyed challenges and for me this is just a huge challenge, professionally and personally.

Sarri and his Chelsea squad have jetted out to Australia on Thursday to continue their pre-season preparations.
