Arsenal & Chelsea Join Chase For In-Demand Serie A Starlet

London duo join Liverpool and Milan in pursuit of young midfielder.

Check in to Inter Milan vs Hellas Verona FC

Arsenal and Chelsea look set to join Liverpool and AC Milan in pursuit of exciting Hellas Verona starlet Jorginho, according to the Daily Star.

The Brazilian-born Italy Under-21 international looks like one of the best prospects in Serie A at the moment, catching the eye this season with newly-promoted Verona.

The 21-year-old midfielder already has five goals in nine appearances this term and is being touted as a star for the future as top clubs continue to circle.

Jorginho could already be worth around £10m, and could spark something of a bidding war this January as teams won’t want to miss out on the potential signing of this top talent.

Arsenal have a good record with giving chances to young players, and their style of play could be ideal for the skillful attacker as he looks to further his development, though the option to stay in Serie A with one of Italy’s biggest clubs in Milan could also be tempting for him at this stage.

It is believed that the Gunners had scouts to watch him this weekend, and they will have been impressed as he scored two goals for his side against Parma.
