The 29-year-old Italian midfielder has been in stunning form of late, having played a pivotal role in Chelsea’s Champions League triumph over Man City, before starring for impressive Italy side at Euro 2020.

The former Napoli man netting the decisive penalty against Spain to confirm the Azzuri’s spot in the showpiece.

Off the back of a fine club campaign, Jorginho’s agent Joao Santos is hoping he can end the year with victory in the European Championship final against England on Sunday, a triumph that he believes could put his client in contention for the Ballon d’Or.

“I was at Wembley last night. Penalty kick? He takes that kind of penalty in training at least 30-40 times a day, he succeeds automatically now,” Santos told Radio Marte.

“He won the Champions League and did very well. Now maybe on Sunday he can also win the European Championship. And maybe he can also enter the Ballon d’Or list.”

Amid his fine form, attention will turn to a possible contract renewal for the player to remain in west London – his current deal set to expire in 2023 – with Santos admitting that there has also been interest from elsewhere.

“Proposals for the boy? Today, Jorginho’s valuation is around €50m. If a team arrives, Obviously he has made it to many finals,” he added.

“Did any club call me? Yes, but our first thought is to speak to Marina Granovskaia about the renewal.
