When Maurizio Sarri left Stamford Bridge after a single year in London, most pundits were expecting Jorginho to follow his former manager out of the club just as he followed him from Napoli to Chelsea.
While the Italian was subjected to some harsh criticism last season he has since established himself as one of Frank Lampard’s go-to men and has been pivotal in the Blues’ chase for a top four spot so far this season.
The dynamic midfielder has also been turning heads with his signature ‘skip/hop’ penalty technique and has incredibly managed to convert 15 of his last 16 spot kicks.
While his technique is not everyone’s cup of tea, the unorthodox style has seemingly made a good impression on rumoured Chelsea target Timo Werner who recently uploaded a video clip (below) of him trying out the technique during a training session.
Blues fans were quick to notice the video on Instagram which mentioned Jorginho by name and will be hoping that the German’s admiration for the midfielder is a sign of an impending move to the Bridge with certain new reports suggesting that his transfer could be completed as soon as this January.
