According to Sky Sports, Arsenal are showing interest in Chelsea midfielder Jorginho as their search for midfield reinforcements continues.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was assistant to Pep Guardiola when Manchester City came close to signing Jorginho from Napoli in July 2018.
Arsenal had identified Lyon’s Houssem Aouar and Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey as their main targets for the summer window, but they are yet to make any kind of breakthrough with either and are now willing to push for Jorginho.
Jorginho has started both of Chelsea’s Premier League games this season but has tough competition for places with N’Golo Kante, Matteo Kovacic and Billy Gilmour all specialising in the deeper-lying role too.
Jorginho joined from the Serie A side in the summer of 2018 for £50m, plus a potential £7m in add ons. He has made 100 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 10 goals.
