As talk of a Jorginho-Federico Bernardeschi swap hots up, Livio Caferoglu explains why the deal would suit both Juventus and Chelsea.

Juventus are likely to be at the forefront, given their dire need to streamline a squad with no shortage of deadwood and find the missing piece to their midfield jigsaw.
