Chelsea have signed Napoli midfielder Jorginho on a five-year deal for £57 million. He will be wearing the no. 5 shirt.
The 26-year-old Italian International followed his former boss Maurizio Sarri to become Chelsea’s first official signing this summer.
“I am absolutely ecstatic to be here at Chelsea,” Jorginho said. “It is not easy to become part of such a big team so I am very, very happy. I am excited to play in such an intense league for a team that gives everything to play and win.”
According to various media reports, Isaiah Thomas – the former Lakers point guard – has agreed to a one-year deal with the Denver Nuggets.
Thomas was a second-round draft pick for the Sacramento Kings in 2011 but became a two-time All-Star during his two-plus seasons with the Boston Celtics from 2014 to 2017. Last off-season, he was dealt to Cleveland as part of the trade that sent Kyrie Irving to the Celtics.
