Arsenal Star Linked to Juventus and Lazio by His Agent

Jorginho is in the dark concerning his future, as Arsenal would need to pick an option for him to stay put. He has notched 25 appearances so far but has rarely started in the last couple of months.

His agent Joao Santos dished on the topic to TVPlay.

“We’ll evaluate the proposal we’ll receive and decide what’s best for him. Obviously, our priority is renewing with Arsenal because he’s very comfortable with everybody there. However, since his contract is expiring, we hope a team that wants to do good by him comes forward.”

“As far as a possible return to Serie A is concerned, the transfer market is slow and stuck there now. It was more aggressive in the past. I don’t know if it’s a matter of money or strategy. No Italian team has shown serious interest in Jorginho at this stage.”

“If we are to play a game, I’d see him at Lazio thanks to the presence of Maurizio Sarri, who knows his traits very well, but also at Juventus since they have a great sporting director like Cristiano Giuntoli. They have many nice years together in Naples. I wouldn’t rule out the Azzurri since Francesco Calzona worked with Sarri in the past. We never had any contact with Roma. Instead, anybody would like to play at Milan and Inter due to their strength and tradition.”

Our Take on Jorginho

A few teams could use a pure regista, especially Juventus, but his wages might be too rich at this point of his career.
