Napoli star Jorginho has remained coy on the recent speculation linking him with a move to Arsenal, but his agent has said that Napoli will sell if The Gunners make a irrefutable offer, according to Football Italia.
Reports emerged earlier this week claiming that Arsenal had sent a team of scouts over to Italy to have the 23-year-old watched, though his agent couldn’t be sure that they were there to watch his client.
“I don’t know if the Arsenal scouts were in Genoa for Jorginho,” Joao Santos admitted, speaking to Radio Crc.
“I’m not surprised that the player is doing very well – especially in light of the change of Coach [Maurizio Sarri replacing Rafa Benitez] – and has top clubs interested in him.
“One of the head scouts of Arsenal is well-known, and so I know he was at Marassi for the Napoli match. Right now we’re more thinking about Jorginho at Napoli than the transfer market.
“I’m in Brazil, and when I’m back we can discuss my client’s contract. The priority is getting a call-up for the [Italy] national team, then there’s the January transfer market.
“If Napoli receive an irrefutable offer for Jorginho in January then it’s normal that we’d make our assessments.”
