Alan Shearer believes Jorginho is a superb signing for Arsenal and the Brazillian will prove why he is a brilliant buy with time.
The Gunners had targeted Moises Caicedo for most of the last few days of the previous transfer window, but Brighton refused to sell.
This forced Arsenal to add Jorginho to their squad on a short-term deal from rivals Chelsea.
The Brazilian is an accomplished Premier League midfielder and brings a lot of experience to the Emirates Stadium.
However, some fans have criticised the move, considering Willian and David Luiz have made a similar transfer and flopped.
But Shearer believes Jorginho will turn out to be a superb signing for Mikel Arteta’s side. He said on the BBC:
“Arsenal are a very, very good team with a really bright and intelligent manager in Mikel Arteta.
“I really do like the Jorginho signing. He will bring a wealth of experience and that know-how to win and to get over the line.”
Just Arsenal Opinion
Jorginho was a key player at Chelsea for several seasons before moving to the Emirates and the midfielder should do well in North London.
However, he is not getting any younger and struggled to get game time at Stamford Bridge before moving to Arsenal.

he is a decent player
it’s necessary to have a cover kind for Thomas Partey…
Jorginho is an excellent stop gap addition for Arsenal
Nice read but Jorginho is not Brazilian.. He’s Italian. You might want to edit and change that bit..
How can he not be Brazilian if he was born there????
He plays for Italy, born in Brazil.

Under the circumstances (unavailability of Caicedo, closing window) they did well to identify and recruit Jorginho. He is a tried and tested midfielder who won things – European Cups, and received great individual nominations.
A good signing but too early to replace Partey when P is match fit. I believe the changes costed Arsenal in their loss!
I understand it was an opportunity difficult to pass up given the situation we were with Caicedo but he was not the type of player we need. Arteta’s admiration for the player in the past definitely played a major role. There are more useful players in the league we could have explored. As things stand we still don’t have a midfielder from our bench without a major drop off. This is a lingering problem for quite some time now.
No he is not good at Edu s favour but he make a wrong decision
