Arsenal eyeing shock move for Chelsea midfielder Jorginho

Arsenal are eyeing a shock move for Chelsea midfielder Jorginho.

Sky Sports says the Gunners had identified Lyon's Houssem Aouar and Atletico Madrid's Thomas Partey as their main targets for the summer window, but they are yet to make any kind of breakthrough with either.

However, Jorginho has now emerged as a target for manager Mikel Arteta.

The Arsenal boss was part of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City set-up when they wanted to sign the Italian from Napoli back in 2018.

However, Jorginho opted to follow his manager Maurizio Sarri to Chelsea instead and remains in their midfield options under Frank Lampard.

The 28-year-old has started both Premier League matches this season for Chelsea, but has tough competition for places with N'Golo Kante, Matteo Kovacic and Billy Gilmour all specialising in the deeper-lying role too.
