Jorginho set for Arsenal as Chelsea agree £12m deal



Italy midfielder Jorginho is set to join Arsenal from Chelsea after both sides have agreed to a £12m deal.

Jorginho, 31, joined Chelsea from Napoli in 2018 for a fee of around £50m, and is into the final six months of his contract at Stamford Bridge.

The Euro winner will now have a medical before signing an 18-month contract with the Gunners with the option of a further year.

Jorginho will be Arsenal’s third signing of the January transfer window after the club acquired Leandro Trossard of Belgium from Brighton for £21 million and Poland’s Jakub Kiwior from Spezia for 20 million euros.

The team led by Mikel Arteta has a game in hand over the teams directly below them and leads the Premier League by five points.

In 213 games with Chelsea, Jorginho has scored 29 goals and helped the team win the Champions League, Europa League, Uefa Super Cup, and Fifa Club World Cup.
