Chelsea boss Frank Lampard tipped to make midfield transfer decision involving Jorginho

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has been tipped by Jamie Carragher to sell Jorginho and replace him in the starting XI with Billy Gilmour. The Blues will be looking to show multiple players the exit door this summer.

Jorginho has only played a handful of times since the restart while Gilmour looked to be playing well before his injury at Crystal Palace.

The Scot has been ruled out of action for around three months after having knee surgery.

Jorginho signed for Chelsea along with Maurizio Sarri two years ago but his form has been inconsistent.

“He must have his mind up made about many of those he inherited from Sarri,” Carragher wrote in his column for the Telegraph.

“I can see Jorginho rejoining Sarri at Juventus.
