The only player Arsenal is currently linked to in this summer transfer window, after missing out on the signature of Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar is Chelsea star Jorginho but they could be set to miss out on his signature.

This is after reports claim that French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain are also seeking the signature of the Italian man and could make a move before the end of Monday.

Chelsea star Jorginho has not been in the best of place at the Stamford Bridge and has been speculated to be on the move. It is understood that the Blues will let him go if they are able to sign a midfielder to replace him.

It is believed that the former Napoli midfielder is the easiest deal the Gunners can strike before the deadline but that is being threatened by the French Ligue 1 outfit that are reported to be keen with a last-minute attempt.

It is understood that Paris Saint Germain have already approached Chelsea boss Frank Lampard on the possibility of the deal on a loan term and it is reported to be a positive one.

This development will be a big blow to Mikel Arteta as he is keen to land a midfielder to add to the quality of the team.
