Arsenal, who missed signing Moises Caicedo, eventually completed the signing of Chelsea midfielder Jorginho.
On the 31st (Korean time), reporter Fabricio Romano, who is familiar with the European football transfer market, said on his SNS, “Jorginho is going to Arsenal. And documents are being prepared. Personal conditions have been agreed, and an option for an additional year is included in the contract until 2024. A medical test is scheduled,” he said, leaving the phrase “here we go” announcing the completion of the transfer.
Arsenal wanted to sign a midfielder in the transfer market this winter. Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey have been starting out, but substitute Mohamed Elneny has a long-term injury and Sambi Lokonga lacks experience. Arsenal, who had a chance to win the English Premier League (EPL), planned to bring the midfielder through the transfer market this 스포츠토토 winter.
The first choice was Brighton’s Moisis Caicedo, but it was misfired due to transfer fee issues. Eventually, as the end of the transfer window approached, Arsenal gave up signing Kaisedo and looked for another player.
‘London rival’ Chelsea’s Jorginho caught my eye. Jorginho is a midfielder who has been active as a main player after moving to Chelsea in the English Premier League (EPL) since 2018. He commands the overall team’s build-up from the defensive midfielder position and is recognized as a high-level player by demonstrating stable passing ability.
In 2021, I took a peak career. He won the European Football Federation (UFEA) Champions League (UCL) with Chelsea, and won the UEFA Euro 2020 trophy with the Italian national team. Because he played as a key midfielder for both teams at the time, he was selected as the UEFA Player of the Year for the 2020-21 season. Thanks to these performances, he made his presence known by entering the 2021 Ballon d’Or podium (3rd place).
Jorginho’s position within the team was to be unstable as Chelsea sought to sign ‘World Cup star’ Enzo Fernandes, who would compete for the same position in the transfer window this winter. There was no difficulty in persuasion because the future was uncertain enough that the contract was about to expire at the end of this season. In a short time, the transfer fee and personal negotiations were completed, and Arsenal were able to embrace Jorginho.
