Arsenal made serious attempt for Chelsea midfielder Jorginho

Arsenal made a serious attempt for Chelsea midfielder Jorginho over the summer, it has been revealed.

The Athletic says Arsenal tried to sign Chelsea midfielder Jorginho in the summer.

The Gunners attempted to use instalment-based payment structures to land two of their top three targets.

The Italy international was on the shortlist along with Lyon's Houssem Aouar and Thomas Partey.

Partey was the only star to arrive at the Emirates after Arsenal activated his £45million Atletico Madrid release clause on deadline day.
