The transfer window is closed but managers are working hard on their plans for the summer so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, Arsenal join the race to sign Jorginho…
Arsenal have joined rivals Manchester United and Liverpool in the race to sign Napoli midfielder Jorginho this summer, according to a report in the Metro.
Jorginho has developed in to one of the best defensive midfielders in Serie A since joining Napoli from Verona in 2014 and he’s also now a regular in the Italian national squad.
The 26-year-old has been a key player in Mauricio Sarri’s starting eleven as Napoli battle-it-out with Juventus for the Serie A title this season with just one point currently separating the two teams at the top of the table.
Jorginho’s impressive form has attracted interest from several clubs throughout Europe with Liverpool and Man Utd among the clubs who’ve been strongly linked in recent months.
Jurgen Klopp is on the look-out for a potential replacement for Emre Can – who’s being tipped to join Juventus when his contract expires in June – and Jorginho has been earmarked as a replacement.
The Mirror reported over the weekend that United were ready to steel a march on Liverpool by tabling a £50m offer for the Italian international as Jose Mourinho looks to find a replacement for the retiring Michael Carrick.
However, it looks like the duo will now face even further competition as the Metro are reporting that Arsenal are ready to battle-it-out with United and Liverpool to sign Jorginho this summer.
The Gunners are expected to revamp their squad at the end of the season following a disastrous campaign and a new central midfielder is required as Santi Cazorla is unlikely to play again due to injury while Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey’s futures are also in doubt due to contract situations.
Jorginho would be an excellent signing for the north Londoners but they’ll face a tough time beating the likes of Liverpool and United to his signature if they fail to qualify for the Champions League next season.
