Pace & Quick Feet: Arsenal Eye Serie A’s Hidden Gem To Revitalise Limp Attack

Jorginho Frello stats

Arsenal are in talks with the agent of Napoli midfielder Jorginho, according to TMW.

The young midfielder only moved to Napoli in January after a stellar first half to the season with Hellas Verona in Serie A. He had been linked with a number of clubs including Arsenal’s Premier League rivals Chelsea and Liverpool.

He has been linked with a move away ever since helping Verona gain promotion to Serie A last summer. He was signed on a co-ownership deal by Napoli and has played 11 times since for his new manager, Rafael Benitez.

Jorginho could be on the move again in the near future, with TMW claiming his agent Joao Santos had discussions with Arsenal while he was in London earlier this month.

Santos is expected to head to Italy in the second week of April to meet Napoli officials, with Tottenham expected to rival their north London neighbours if Jorginho becomes available for transfer.

Co-ownership deals can often be confusing and difficult for non-Italian clubs to push through.


Jorginho has completed 6/8 take-ons in his eight Serie A appearances for Napoli.
