90 mins report this morning that Chelsea are ready to allow Jorginho to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer transfer window.
The 30-year-old Italy international’s contract expires in 2023 and the Premier League club are reportedly ready to sack him now.
And it could be interesting for Arsenal.
Arsenal’s past interest in Chelsea’s Jorginho
Sky Sports reported Arsenal interest in Jorginho in October 2020.
Arsenal finally signed Thomas Partey from Atlético Madrid £45 million in October 2020 but the Ghana defensive midfielder has been linked with a move from Emirates Stadium this summer.
tuttomercatoweb reported this week that Juventus are interested in signing Partey and that a potential swap deal could go through with Arthur Melo.
Yes, Melo is a good player but Jorginho is a more accomplished midfielder who has found success in the Premier League and lives in London.
The 30-year-old is at his best now and could make an instant impression at the Emirates Stadium.
The signing of a player of the caliber of Jorginho, who has won the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and UEFA European Championship with Italy, would be a statement from Arsenal.
