Jorginho’s agent makes new comments after Arsenal stopped talks

Jorginho has been one of the finest Arsenal players since the turn of the new year after he got more chances as a replacement for the stricken Thomas Partey.

He had been considered one of the players the club would offload in the summer, but as his performance improved, fans began to call for him to be handed a new deal.

Arsenal also know he has worked hard enough to deserve it and was speaking with his entourage, but recent reports suggest the Gunners have halted talks as they focus on other issues.

Mikel Arteta’s side is enjoying his talents and has an option to extend his deal for one more year.

The midfielder is also not looking to leave, and even after Arsenal halted talks, his agent, Joao Santos, said, as quoted by Tuttomercatoweb:

“He’s out of contract with the Gunners, we’ll talk to them because he’s doing well. If they need him from next season…”

While discussing if he client could return to Serie A, he added: “It’s always like this in football: Jorginho has played in Italy all his life, he likes it a lot, why say no?”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Jorginho has been one of our best players this term, and the midfielder seems to improve with age.

We need to make a decision on his future soon, and keeping him is a good idea, even if he will not play regularly next term.

  1. While Arsenal could keep Jorginho next season for a year contract extension. But their keeping him SHOULD not be at the detriment of not signing a new top quality out and out defensive holding midfielder by them next summer.
    And who I think SHOULD be a Yaya Toure 2.0 kind. That will be sitting in front of the Gunners defense-line to protect it fron being breached..
    In the same vein, I will urge Arsenal to also sign a new top quality ccentreback of the former Gunner Kolo Toure 2.0 kind next summer transfer window. Who will replace Kiwior at the heart of the Gunners defence. In anticipation of the pole being moved permanently to the left back position next season.
    And of course Arsenal are widely expected to sign a new top quality striker of clinical finish regulat goals scoring kind next season.
    Which if Arsenal does sign next summer. It will complete the expected three new top quality signings that they SHOULD do next summer.

  2. He’ll be 33 before the end of this year and already his legs are gone. He was bullied in the Porto game and will be worse next season. They should think twice before extending his contract. Not a good idea, let him leave.

    1. Everyone including Rice/Odegard, wingers etc had a tough game against Porto……Issue with Porto game was more of a structure than individual brilliance, there mid-block set up was a genius and it frustrated Arteta’s tactics. – its therefore hypocritical to use that game but ignore his amazing work in our win against high flying Liverpool midfield and majority of our 2024 EPL wins.

      With Elneny, Partey leaving, am sure Arsenal will want to get a top DM but we will be short of one more body and having his quality as a cover would be great – his experience and his willingness to sit on the bench await his chance without tantrums is top notch!

  3. He’s going over the hill now, not sure how much is left in those legs but it is worthwhile having around.

  4. Maybe he and agent want a pay raise and more than 1 year extension?

    Who knows what was the offers from both sides?

    Maybe he wanted more than 1 year deal?
