Napoli midfielder has emerged as one of the top transfer targets for Arsenal ahead of the January transfer window.
Various reports from the British press suggest that Arsene Wenger is keen to push through a deal for the 25-year-old Partenopei hot-shot during winter, adding however that the French tactician is prepared to wait until the summer to grab a highly-rated star.
Gunners should very well be aware of the fact Napoli are in the run for Scudetto and are highly unlikely to give up on any of their first-team stars as long as they have a firm chance of wrapping the Scudetto and ending Juventus’ Serie A dominance.
Partenopei are expected to knock back any potential offer that might come their way in January but Arsenal, on the other side, want to make their interest known and will continue to cast advancing glances toward the Brazilian-born player.
The Italian international is considered a vital player for the Serie A side and could cost a small fortune in the summer of 2018.
Arsenal are on the lookout for midfield reinforcements with Santi Casorla still unavailable through injury and with German genius Mesut Ozil increasingly linked to a move away from the Emirates.
Granit Xhaka’s inconsistent displays offer little reassurance currently and Arsene Wenger needs a consistent performer at the middle of the park.
Jorginho has thus far made eight Serie A appearances for Napoli and all three in the Champions League.
The 25-year-old midfielder is expected to be in the team for Napoli’s Champions League clash against Manchester City on Wednesday. The Serie A hot-shots need to win in order to keep their continental hopes alive and can be found at valuable 7/5 betting odds to defeat in-form Citizens.
