Italian announces £200,000-a-week star has made decision to stay with Arsenal

Italian Journalist Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Jorginho will not be leaving Arsenal this month.

With the arrivals of Declan Rice and Kai Havertz this summer there has been much talk of a revamped midfield at ARSENAL, with Jorginho not tipped by many to be first choice.

That has led to some suggestions in the media that he is a player that the Gunners would allow to depart the club over the transfer window – with a move to the Spanish league or Saudi Arabia mooted for the Italian star.

However – once the summer window closed for Premier League clubs on the 1st September, it seemed that all the transfer speculation regarding the Italian star had stopped as it seemed he was all set to stay.

But a recent report from Team Talk suggests that Fenerbahce is not giving up on their pursuit of Jorginho and will use the remaining days of their transfer window to attempt to secure his signature.

The same report adds that the Super Lig giants and the Gunners are in negotiations over a deal worth between £6million and £6.8m, but that seems to not be the case if you believe Romano.

WHAT HAS BEEN SAID – 

Discussing the Jorginho situation, Romano said: “I’m also told there is no chance of Jorginho leaving for a late move to Turkey after some speculation about interest from Fenerbahce.

“Arsenal fans have been keen to know more about this, but honestly, from everything I’m hearing, Jorginho was never close to Turkish league move this summer, it was never an option. He’s staying.”

He really is the type of player that managers love to have in the squad, he is world class, he is proven at the top of the game, he has that experience, and he is a proven winner, so keeping him happy this season will be on the agenda of Arteta.

So, the news that he intends to not leave ARSENAL will be massive news.
