Arsenal are currently in a tough phase at the club and hopefully, the troubles will bring about a significant change at the Club. While many have called on Arsene Wenger to be sacked, pundits have also made a case for the overhauling of the Gunners squad.
According to latest reports, Arsenal have signaled their interest in signing Brazil and Napoli midfielder, this is according to reports.
Joginho is currently enjoying a barnstorming season in the Seria A as despite being a natural defensive midfielders, he’s scored three goals and provided assist. His display has tickled the fancy of top Premier League Clubs who are now vying for his signature.
Liverpool and Manchester United are thought to be front runners for the players signature – Emre Can has stalled over signing a new deal with the Reds and they are also scampering for a player in his stead, and Jorginho fits the bill for them.
Meanwhile, Manchester United could lose Marouane Fellaini at the end of the season and Michael Carrick’s new position at the Club has compelled them to be looking for a new midfielder.
Any Club that will sign the 26-year-old will have to part with the excess of £50m. The Gunners were one of the biggest spenders of the January transfer window but you’d expect them to sign some quality players.
Confirming interest from the Premier League, the agent of the player said:
‘It’s normal for European top clubs to keep players of this type in their radars,’ agent Joao Santos told The Sun.
‘We’re waiting for May. We wish Napoli could win the league. Then if Napoli wants to renew the contract, we talk about it.
‘The same if they want to sell Jorginho. There are no official and concrete proposals for him from UK.
‘I don’t know if De Laurentiis will call me at the end of the season to extend the contract of the player. I suppose that. ‘We are available to deal with. He became Neapolitan and we are in a family. He is a first level player.’
