English Premier League outfit Arsenal have been recently linked with Chelsea star Jorginho as they are finding it difficult to agree on a deal with Atletico Madrid for Thomas Partey.
The Chelsea man has been tipped to be an alternative in the Gunners’’ search for a midfielder as the player is reportedly out of favour at the Stanford Bridge with the Blues boss making moves to bring in another midfielder.
Jorginho was earlier tipped to join Italian Serie A outfit Juventus but the chances of that happening again is now very slim with the sack of Italian boss Maurizio Sarri.

However, it is reported that Arsenal’s chances of signing Jorginho are dependent on Frank Lampard‘s ability to snap up the signature of West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice.
It is understood that Frank Lampard is making another last push to bring in the player. West Ham United have insisted that they will not sell the player this transfer window.
However, the opportunity to sign up Jorginho awaits the North London club if Chelsea are able to sign Declan Rice but that might not happen again should Arsenal secure the signature of Houssem Aouar.
Houssem Aouar has made it clear he wants to join Arsenal and the latest reports have claimed that Lyon could soften their stance on him.
