Chelsea’s summer signing Jorginho has settled seamlessly into the Premier League and London life, according to his agent.

The tireless midfielder followed new manager Maurizio Sarri from Napoli over the summer and has hit the ground running with a goal on his league debut at Huddersfield on the opening day.

The 26-year-old embodies Sarri’s philosophy on the pitch and, while his new teammates may take some time to get up to speed with their new boss, Jorginho has settled right in.

Speaking to Radio CRC in Italy, agent Joao Santos said: “Jorginho has started his adventure at Chelsea very well.

“He’s already integrated himself, plus he also speaks English well, so he’s not having any problems settling.

“When a player is good, he can play in any League. Stereotypes matter little. If a player has quality, they can make the grade anywhere.”

On the win over Unai Emery’s Arsenal, he added: “He’s very happy with how the match against Arsenal went. There were 50 Neapolitans who cheered him on and asked for photos and autographs.

“This is why we love Naples and we’ll continue to. Their support has continued in London. Jorginho has many friends in Naples, like Mertens and Insigne.

“He heard from them after Napoli’s win against Lazio and complimented the team.”
