Italian side Juventus are set to beat Spanish side Barcelona for the signing of Chelsea midfielder Jorginho, according to Todofichajes.

Juventus are in advanced talks with Jorginho, who will be a free agent in the summer, ahead of rivals Barcelona.

Juventus have long shown interest in signing Jorginho and look set to finally sign the Italy midfielder as a free agent at the end of the season.

Chelsea have so far failed to reach an agreement to extend the contract of Jorginho. The Blues are reluctant to meet Jorginho’s wage demands, with the midfielder demanding double his current wages.
