Sky Sports claims that Arsenal has added Jorginho to their list of transfer targets this summer as they brace themselves to lose Lucas Torreira.
The Gunners have had a busy transfer window, but more players are expected to join the club.
They want a midfielder before the transfer window shuts, both Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar have emerged as targets for them.
But the report is claiming that they have added Jorginho to the list as they prepare to sell Torreira to Atletico Madrid.
Mikel Arteta was part of the Manchester City coaching staff when Chelsea beat the Citizens to the signature of Jorginho in 2018 and he remains interested in the services of the Brazil-born Italy international.
Jorginho struggled to play for the Blues last season, but he has captained them in two games this season already.
It remains unclear if the Blues who have added several players to their team this season will be willing to sell him.
Arsenal can also ask for Thomas Partey in exchange for Torriera but it seems that Atletico will only sign the Uruguayan on-loan for the season and in a separate deal.
Money from the sale of Torriera is to be used to sign another midfielder and Arsenal might shop him around, with the Italian side, Torino still keen on landing him.
No Jorginho please. We already have xhaka and adding him is just multiplying Xhaka. We need strength, mobility and speed. Also, we need CM who chip in with few goals, which is currently lacking from our squad
Just my thought
Jorginho is poor defensively and as such we should not contemplate buying him.As for Torreria, we need a “clean” no strings attached, sale to pave the way to acquire one of our genuine targets.In this regard I have yet to see or hear evidence that we have officially approached Athletico Madrid for Partey.Perhaps a subscriber to this blog could enlighten me as to whether such evidence exists?
If we sell Xhaka then yes as they are the exact same type of player imo, we dont need 2. Torreira goes to Athletico, we buy Partey, no swaps just cash for both to balance the books at both clubs.
Aouer is a straight buy and we have to cough up the money for that somehow. Maybe last days of the window it may happen if we can get rid of Matteo, Papa, Mustafi. Read a rumour yesterday that Matteo may be used in a swap with Coutinho if Aouer cant happen. Any of the two would be fine with me for a creative outlet in midfield since Ozil isnt going to play for Arsenal again by the looks of it
Another one??!! 🤪
Probably 6th or something on the list of potential Partey alternatives. So essentially, it’s never going to happen and thank goodness for that.
