Jorginho admits he wants to return to Italy as he runs down contract

Jorginho has an expiring contract at Arsenal and seems keen to move back to Italy. The midfielder has only been at Arsenal for a few months, having joined them in January.

However, he signed a one-and-a-half-year deal at the Emirates, although the Gunners retain an option to extend it.

It remains unclear if they will take that option, and Jorginho has been an important player for them in the last few months.

The midfielder is on international duty for Italy and was asked about his future and if he will return to Italy soon.

He said, as quoted by The Sun:

“I’m very much in doubt, I would like to return to Italy.

“But I don’t know when the right time would be.

“I want to return yes, but I don’t know when, I feel I still have things to do at Arsenal.

“It always takes time when you change teams, but the first six months at Arsenal were not negative, on the contrary.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Jorginho has been an important team member in the last few weeks as the likes of Martin Odegaard and Thomas Partey were unavailable to play for the club.

However, he might be allowed to leave in the summer if we sign much younger and better midfielders who can offer us long-term value.

  1. His experience is of value, but he needs to be 100% match fit just to keep up with the energy of the other younger players. Some players can still play at 90%, but not him.

  2. It ought to be abundantly plain to any astute gOONER THAT jORGINHO WAS A SHORT TERM BUy AND IS SIMPLY PASSING THROUGH.

    HE HAS NO REAL FUTURE HERE and he himself, MA and all sensible fans REALISE THAT.
    He will be gone at latest by next summer. I WISH HE HAD NEVER COME AT ALL

  3. It looks like a major overhaul of our central midfield will be necessary at the end of the season as I expect, Partey, Jorjinho and Elneny to leave.Zinchenko should be used in midfield but we will need a minimum of two qua!ity replacements to support Rice.

  4. Jorginho, in my opinion, is a very good short term fix with good skill and a lot of passion for Arsenal and it would not surprise me in the least if he’s offered another year and accepts it, as he clearly enjoys being with us. Having said that, if a big offer comes in for him in the summer (I don’t think we would let him leave in January) then if we have a replacement, he will be sold. Regarding him saying he wishes to return to Italy, he did qualify that by saying, before he retires.

    1. Certainly he IS “a short term fix”.

      As for ” good skill and lot ofpassion”, your understanding of the true meanings of those words is the polar opposite from my certain knowledge of their meanings.

      1. AdPat, I understood he can listen to offers and talk to other (foreign) clubs in January as he is able to leave in the summer window, which doesn’t end until 1st September ‘24. Perhaps I’ve been misinformed, please confirm?

          1. Sorry Pat but I don’t understand how that stops him from being sold in the summer if his contract runs out in June he is then out of contract in the summer window, also even players in contract can be sold if all parties agree.
