Chelsea wants replacement signed before releasing Jorginho to Arsenal

Chelsea want a replacement signed before releasing Jorginho on-loan to Arsenal.

ESPN says Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is desperate to sign Chelsea midfielder Jorginho.

The Gunners look to have missed out on long-term target Houssem Aouar, with Lyon chiefs declaring that none of their players will leave before Monday's transfer deadline.

It means that Arteta has turned his attention to the Italian international, who could be sold by Chelsea following their £250 million outlay on transfers over the summer.

The Gunners are eager to bring Jorginho to Arsenal in a loan deal, with the Blues hoping to bring in another midfielder before they sanction any possible move.
