Arteta reveals why it is great that Jorginho has signed a new contract

Mikel Arteta has highlighted Jorginho’s importance to his team after the Italian midfielder signed a new contract at the Emirates.

Jorginho has been a key player for the Gunners in the second half of this season after joining them halfway through last season.

Arsenal added him to their squad to benefit from his rich experience, considering he has also played for top clubs like Chelsea and Napoli.

The Italy international, who also won Euro 2020 and the Champions League in 2021, has been showcasing his value to Arsenal.

The club’s fans have been urging them to secure him on a new deal as soon as possible, and they finally did so today.

Revealing how important the ex-Chelsea man is to the team, Arteta said, as quoted by Football Italia:

“We’re delighted that Jorgi has signed a new contract with us. Jorgi is such an important part of our team, a role model with great leadership skills and a unique playing style ability which makes everybody better around him on the pitch.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Jorginho has earned his new deal and the midfielder will now look to win some trophies with us as he has done at Chelsea and with Italy.


So here are some simple rules which I must insist commenters follow….

You agree not to give any personal abuse to other Arsenal fans. Everyone is allowed to hold their own opinions even if you disagree with them. It COSTS NOTHING TO BE POLITE TO OTHER ARSENAL FANS.

  1. The only midfield position in the current Arsenal’s team group squad, that is looking will be vacant at the end of the season. Should be the position that is currently being occupied by Mo Elneny.
    So, Arsenal SHOULD sign a new top quality defensive holding midfielder next summer window as replacement to him.
    But the rest of the midfielders of. Partey, Rice, Ddegaard, ESR and Vieira SHOULD all stay on in the squad next summer. Which will include Jorginho to make them 7 in numbers if the new is signed.
    And I think these numbers of midfielders should be okay for Arsenal’s midfield for their next summer campaign.

  2. extending Jorginho stay secures a DM base to de-risk the inevitable rebuild of aging legs, a new younger and more dynamic DM can now come in the summer and bed in with the security of Jorginho to back them up

    a second top class DM to come in next window, space out the spend, space out the settling time

    that means of course that Partey can be sold with no interruption to performance levels (given he has only played 3 games he can hardly be claimed as integral to 2023/24 season success)

    apologies, just a real take on the real facts without sentimental favour for a past good servant but aging inevitably to be replaced

  3. It’s a bit risky to have two unreliable d´ms in the squad
    next season. Jorghiniho won’t last full 90 min. and Partey
    will have muscle injuries ??

  4. Jorginho is insurance at DM, and to spread out the spending. Bring in 1 DM this Summer, and another midfielder next Summer.

    Would it be worth keeping Partey to play out his last year?
    I would feel more confident knowing Partey is insurance than Jorginho.

    Partey has injury concerns, but not a problem if he only plays 10-12 games next year and some sub appearances.

    We need depth and quality if we want to win the PL.
