Arsenal have moved very quickly and reached a last minute agreement with Chelsea for the signing of Jorginho. The Gunners will pay 12 million pounds for the Italian midfielder.
The two London clubs have reached an agreement and the 31-year-old will play under Mikel Arteta until 2024. Arsenal were planning to sign a reinforcement in the January transfer window and Moises Caicedo was the main contender.
However, the negotiations did not go as well as expected and Arteta’s side had to look for a second option. As a result, Jorginho’s move to Arsenal could be announced in the next few hours.
So much so that journalist Fabrizio Romano has posted on Twitter a leaked image of the Italian player wearing a shirt of his next team.
