With their second place in the Premier League standings, the Gunners are starting an ambitious transfer window. Mikel Arteta’s squad intends to build a squad capable of tackling the various challenges of the 2023-2024 season. The future of several London players has been questioned in recent days. Some of them would have been sliced.
According to information published by 90 mins, 31-year-old midfielder Jorginho could leave Arsenal this summer. The club would be open to proposals concerning him.
Lazio, Naples and AC Milan on the spot
Jorginho joined Arsenal last January. Mikel Arteta was betting on him to strengthen the team in the Premier League title race.
Although he managed to come out on top, his performances weren’t enough to keep Arsenal in first place. The Gunners finished second, behind Manchester City, but also ahead of Manchester United and Newcastle, who have big resources.
Despite this performance, Jorginho’s arrival at Arsenal was still seen as a short-term solution. If the opportunity arises, the player could return to Italy. The London club would not intend to obstruct his departure.
Maurizio Sarri, current coach of Lazio, would be interested in Jorginho. And this would also be the case for Naples, the Serie A champion, and AC Milan.
For Arsenal, the departure of Jorginho would free up space in the workforce for possible arrivals. Players like Granit Xhaka, who is set to join Bayer Leverkusen, and Albert Sambi Lokonga could also leave the club.
The space freed up could facilitate the arrival of Declan Rice (West Ham) and Moises Caicedo (Brighton), despite their high cost. Chelsea would also target both, which should make it harder for the Gunners.
As a reminder, Jorginho has played 16 games for Arsenal this season, delivering 1 assist.
