Jorginho’s signing was confirmed during the weekend, as the 26-year-old joined Chelsea from Napoli in a deal worth over £50m.

The Brazilian-born Italy international who is coming from the Serie A has revealed that he knows Alvaro Morata, Emerson Palmieri, Marcos Alonso and Davide Zappacosta from his time in Italy, but it is his compatriot Zappacosta who is helping him settle in his new club.

He told the official Chelsea website: “Yes, I know Davide Zappacosta from the Italy team. I also know a few others who I played against like Marcos Alonso, Emerson and Alvaro Morata.

“I have not had the chance to get to know them as people but I have come across them on the pitch.

“It is really helpful to have someone here I know like Davide to help me settle in, particularly when I am in another country that I don’t know yet.”
