ESPN claims that Arsenal has now turned their attention towards signing Chelsea’s Jorginho after they missed out on signing Houssem Aouar.
The Gunners have spent much of the last two weeks chasing a move for the French midfielder.
They had their initial bid rejected by the French side and they have been working on a new one.
However, Lyon set a deadline of noon on the 3rd of October for all deals involving any of their players leaving to be completed.
Arsenal never returned with an improved offer within that time, and RMC claims that Lyon will no longer allow any of their players to leave.
ESPN claims that the Gunners have now turned their attention towards completing a move for Jorginho before Monday’s transfer deadline.
The midfielder scored two penalties as Chelsea beat Crystal Palace 4-0 on Sunday, but Arteta hopes to secure his signature on a season-long loan deal before the close of the transfer window.
Jorginho struggled to get into Frank Lampard’s team last season and he has been in and out of the Chelsea team this season, however, he has started playing more regular and it will be interesting to see if Lampard will sanction his move away from the club.
