Chelsea have announced the transfer of Jorginho from Napoli.
Jorginho, who snubbed a move to Manchester City, has signed a five-year contract and will wear the no. 5 shirt.
“I am absolutely ecstatic to be here at Chelsea. It is not easy to become part of such a big team so I am very, very happy.
”I am excited to play in such an intense league, for a team that gives everything to play and win,” he told the club’s official website.
Club director, Marina Granovskaia, added: “We are delighted Jorginho has chosen to join Chelsea. He was one of the most coveted midfielders in Europe and will become an important member of the playing squad.
“He has demonstrated his quality working under Maurizio Sarri and we are convinced his signing will help bring further success to Stamford Bridge.”
