Arsenal’s age-old search for a dominating defensive midfielder seems to picking up pace with the recent rumours suggesting that we are in the market to find one, and the first two names on the list would appear to be Napoli’s Jorginho and Nice’s Jean Micheal Seri who are both widely acknowledged as two of the best in that position in Europe at the moment.
It was revealed yesterday by Sky Sports transfer guru Kaveh Solhekol that Arsenal are one of the front runners to lure Seri from Nice, and today the agent of Jorginho has stated that the Gunners have contacted him about his client. Joao Santos is quoted as saying by the Metro: ‘I’m in Brazil, nobody called me from Naples, but English teams have called me, Liverpool, Manchester City, but also Arsenal and Chelsea,’
‘It depends on Napoli and sports director Giuntoli. Of course it is not difficult to find agreements with teams like these.
‘I don’t know if Maurizio Sarri’s possible exit would speed up Jorginho’s transfer, for Napoli it will be positive to capitalise on the offers then we will talk.”
No matter who comes in as Arsenal’s new manager, the fans will surely be very happy if we can get one of these two powerhouses to help protect our new defence set up.
Obviously we can’t get both of them, so which one would you prefer? Jorginho or Seri?
