Juventus keen on Jorginho

Juventus are keen on bringing Jorginho back to Serie A in the summer and will hope Arsenal do not trigger an extension in his contract.

According to Il Bianconero, Juventus are keen on signing Jorginho in the summer window to add to their midfield options. The Arsenal first-team star has an option for the club to extend his contract, which the Bianconeri will hope does not happen.

Juventus keen on Jorginho

Juventus will enter the summer market looking to strengthen their midfield as the club considers several options, with few of those in the Premier League. For instance, they have been chasing Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, although Tottenham will demand a significant fee to sell the Danish international.

Finances permitting, they might sign the Spurs midfielder, although they could also consider financially viable alternatives, such as Jorginho. The Italian midfielder has been a good presence for Mikel Arteta at Arsenal, with the Gunners boss a big fan and eager to keep him on board.

However, Juventus have long considered Jorginho as an option to strengthen their midfield and believe the Italian international still has plenty to offer. His potential availability on a free transfer will undoubtedly keep the Bianconeri entertained.

Jorginho was linked with a move away in January, but so far, he has stayed and helped Arsenal in some of the biggest games this season. Hence, Arteta might feel compelled to keep him, as the Gunners do have an option to extend his deal, something Juventus are hoping they do not trigger in the coming months.

Will Arsenal let go of Jorginho?

On paper, Jorginho brings something different to this Arsenal side, although he’s not an automatic starter under Arteta. He’s that sort of option that every manager would crave to have on their side, as he brings experience and expertise to a team buzzing with talent.

There were rumours of Trabzonspor failing with an approach in January, which either shows that Arsenal have no interest in letting him go or Jorginho sees himself staying for some more time. Either way, the Italian does have plenty to offer this season and beyond, with Thomas Partey looking increasingly likely to depart than the Italian international next summer.
