Report: £110k-a-week Arsenal midfielder now ready to turn down other clubs to stay for one more season.

Jorginho Set to Remain at Arsenal for Another Season Amidst Transfer Speculations


In a surprising turn of events, Arsenal midfielder Jorginho seems poised to reject a potential move to Italy and extend his stay at The Emirates for at least another season.


The Evening Standard has reported that the 31-year-old is not yet ready to depart from the Gunners, signaling his commitment to the club.


Under the management of Mikel Arteta, there is a clear drive to bolster Arsenal’s midfield options during the summer transfer window.


Last season, Arteta opted for Thomas Partey in the holding role, while Granit Xhaka took up the number eight position.


Both players performed exceptionally well, although Partey’s form waned towards the end of the campaign.


Surprisingly, both Partey and Xhaka could potentially be leaving the club this summer, with Xhaka eyeing a return to the Bundesliga and Partey entertaining the possibility of a move to Saudi Arabia.


Arsenal has been linked heavily with a move for Declan Rice, while Romeo Lavia is also being considered as an alternative. Additionally, when Kai Havertz joins the team, he could be deployed in midfield.


Amidst all the speculations, Jorginho has expressed a strong desire to remain at Arsenal and compete for his place in the team.


The Italian midfielder has already demonstrated his value to the club during his short tenure.


According to the Evening Standard’s report, Jorginho has indicated a lack of interest in joining Lazio in Serie A, as he feels content and settled in London. He is determined to make his time at Arsenal a resounding success.


Jorginho’s arrival at Arsenal in January initially left some fans underwhelmed, as he had not been enjoying his best season at Chelsea. Arsenal had missed out on signing Moises Caicedo, and Jorginho was brought in as an alternative to the Ecuadorian wonderkid.


However, when Thomas Partey suffered an injury, all eyes were on Jorginho to see if he could fill the void.


Although Arsenal suffered a defeat in Jorginho’s debut match against Everton, he gradually assumed Partey’s role in midfield as the season progressed. Arteta reportedly favors retaining Partey at Arsenal over Jorginho this summer.


However, considering Partey’s higher market value, Arteta may be tempted to part ways with the Ghanaian midfielder.


Jorginho could prove to be a valuable asset to the squad this season, particularly as Arsenal prepares for Champions League football.


The Italian midfielder brings with him a wealth of experience in winning major competitions, a quality that can prove invaluable in high-pressure situations.


As the transfer saga unfolds, Jorginho’s decision to remain at Arsenal sends a strong message about his dedication to the club.


While Arsenal continues to explore other midfield options, Jorginho’s presence could serve as a valuable asset and provide depth to the team’s roster.
