Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City scouting Filip Jorgensen

Filip Jorgensen has emerged on the radars of top English sides like Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City ahead of the summer.

According to HITC, Villarreal goalkeeper Filip Jorgensen could have emerged as a target for Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester City. The Premier League trio could end up looking for a new No.2 to add competition to the position and may end up targeting the 21-year-old La Liga goalkeeper.

English trio chasing Filip Jorgensen?

One of the critical aspects of the top English sides, especially Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City, is their depth of goalkeeping. Incidentally, all three teams have tremendous options for their second-choice keepers, who, in truth, could be playing elsewhere as an established No.1

Hence, there are big chances for Aaron Ramsdale, Caoimhin Kelleher, and Stefan Ortega to leave their respective surroundings in the summer and seek a new challenge. Ramsdale already has Newcastle United’s interest, while there are rumours about Ortega wanting a new challenge as No. 1 elsewhere.

Kelleher has significant interest from Celtic, who are convinced he’s the right man to succeed the retiring Joe Hart in the summer. Liverpool are open to the idea and will have to dip into the market for a new keeper, much like Arsenal and Manchester City.

The trio have been scouting 21-year-old La Liga goalkeeper Filip Jorgensen recently and could make a move for the Villarreal star. He has established himself as the Spanish side’s new No.1 and will want to keep on playing until reaching a particular level in his career. However, the interest from Arsenal, Liverpool, or Manchester City could pique his interest in making the big career jump, which could prove risky for him.

Should Jorgensen consider the Premier League trio?

In an ideal world, any goalkeeper would want to play for one of those clubs should an opportunity come along. In Jorgensen’s case, he might have to evaluate the chance, as he has only recently started playing regularly for Villarreal, something he might want to continue at least for another season.

The big reason why the 21-year-old La Liga goalkeeper should reject the overtures of those clubs is that he will likely start the season as their second-choice stopper. Neither side looks open to replacing their current keepers. Alternatively, he could also angle a move to another English side where he could establish himself as their No.1.
