Chelsea’s transfer move might get Arsenal their man

Chelsea will make one last move for West Ham midfielder, Declan Rice and that might pave the way for Jorginho to move to Arsenal, reports Mirror Sports.

Jorginho is admired by Mikel Arteta and the Spaniard was a part of the coaching staff at Manchester City when the Blues beat them to the signature of the Brazil-born Italian international in 2018.

The Spaniard has now made him an alternative target to Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar.

He has played the last two Premier League games for Chelsea, but their continuous pursuit of Rice might see him get sacrificed.

Frank Lampard has long admired Rice, who was in Chelsea’s youth system before being let go by the Blues.

The arrival of Rice may spell the end of Jorginho’s first-team action at Stamford Bridge, but the Blues need a lot of money to convince West Ham to sell and they might sell Jorginho to Arsenal first.

Arsenal is closing in on Aouar, but they are still far behind in terms of the fee demanded by Lyon, if Jorginho became available on a cheap, the Gunners might land him instead.

This has been a largely impressive transfer window for Arsenal and it will be interesting to see which of their midfield targets finally joins them.

    Proof most these papers pull stuff out of thin air.

    A right footed Xhaka?

    Dude has been consisently
    pedestrian at best during his
    stay @ SB.

    A HARD, HARD PASS

      ACE, you are spot on; not what Arsenal need, whereas Thomas Partey is. Thomas Partey has the strength and power to win the ball back in front of a back 3 or 4, drive forward dribbling with the ball centrally into the final third to shoot, lay the ball off or pass to Arsenal’s wide players. Arsenal does not have this ball winning and drive from midfield in the centre of the park.
      If Arsenal misses the current opportunity to sign Partey it won’t come again, because he will re sign with AM with a prohibitive buy out clause.

      1. RFrancis says:

        Are we to believe that of all the players on earth only Partey, and Partey alone, can help this Club at DM?
        I think are helping AM by hyping and inflating the value of their player.

      2. ACE says:

        TP would definitely be a game
        changer for Arsenal but I
        wouldnt lose a wink of sleep if
        Edu and MA told AM to shove
        it and switched there focus to
        B. Soumare from Lille. The more
        I watch of this lad the more I think
        he may be a better investment
        over the long haul than the
        Atletic man. Absolute love his
        limitless ceiling as a player

        1. ozziegunner says:

          RFrancis and ACE, Thomas Partey is not a specialist DM, but a box to box midfielder in the mould of Patrick Viera. If you know of another player with similar attributes, please let me know. Doucoure was similar, but not at the same level as Partey, but he has been snapped up by Everton.
          I too like Soumare, but he has not had enough games yet, although he has the size, speed and strength to succeed as a DM in the EPL.
          If Arsenal wanted to reduce expenditure I would concentrate on getting Partey as the box to box, Soumare or Marc Roca (

    I certainly hope Arsenal doesn’t get through with that Chealsea transfer. He doesn’t hv d strength, dribbling skills to passs defender to start n attack n lack the defensive ability as Thomas Partey to command a midfield!

      👍

  4. Beastmode says:

    This should be a fat NO. He is a bad version of Xhaka. Rather keep Elneny than spending money on someone that brings more disaster to the team. We need speed, strenght, and someone with speed of thought. We also need someone in midfield that will chip in with goals.

    1. ozziegunner says:

      👍

  5. Mohsan says:

    Hard pass …need a creative midfield player not another side ways and back ward passer, we have bunch of those already in the team.

  6. Sue says:

    Alright, these links with every Brazilian under the sun is ridiculous now 😆

    1. lcw says:

      Sue: You are right most of the time so it is refreshing when you are not. Jorginho is Brazilian, Portuguese and Italian all at once.😊

      1. Sue says:

        He was born in Brazil… moved to Italy at 15 apparently… so that’ll do for me 😝

  7. Wenger91 says:

    Kante anyone?!

  8. Grandad says:

    Man Utd have been linked with Kante who could be swapped with Pogba?Arsenal should not entertain Jouginho who is weak defensively and very one paced.
