Arsenal have reportedly joined the list of clubs battling for the transfer of Napoli midfielder Jorginho this summer following transfer rumours involving Manchester United and Liverpool.
The 26-year-old defensive midfield player has shone as one of Napoli’s stand-out performers in Serie A this season, and looks potentially like one of the best in Europe in his position as a growing list of top clubs take notice.
While all of the clubs involved have their own issues in midfield, it is arguably Arsenal’s need for reinforcements in that area that is the gravest right now.
Arsene Wenger has had to rotate between Granit Xhaka, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and Mohamed Elneny this season, none of whom have impressed on a consistent basis.
Jorginho looks as though he could be an upgrade on any of those, or at the very least allow players like Ramsey and Wilshere to get back to their best with a more established partner alongside them.
The Sun claim the Brazilian-born Italy international would likely cost around £60million.
The cold, hard facts: Arsene Wenger has no legacy to tarnish, he has no place alongside elite greats such as Sir Alex Ferguson, but as one of football’s great under-achievers.
