Liverpool have been interested in signing young Brazilian Jorginho from Hellas Verona, however latest reports suggest that Arsenal have already held talks with the rising star.
One position that Brendan Rodgers did not reinforce this summer is that of center midfield. Liverpool need a quality signing for that position and previously it was reported that they may move for Jorginho. It looks like Reds will probably fail in luring him.
According to the same outlet Tutto Marceto, Gunners have held informal talks and the player has flown to London to discuss a potential deal with the club.
The Italian side do not really have that much money and will like to coup as much as they can from the sale of their star player.
As previously praised on Soccerisma, the Brazilian is a versatile talent.
Jorginho’s ability to maneuver with both feet and holding it under pressure makes him impressive. Adding to that, he adds to attack as well. In 7 league games this season, the Brazilian has scored 3 goals and also provided one assist.
Fiorentina are also one of the clubs monitoring his situation. To their advantage, Jorginho will not have to leave the country at least and a move to another Italian side might be a decent option.
On the other hand, a lot depends on the offer Arsenal put on the table. Wenger is renowned for signing young starlets and the talent is inevitable here.
For now, Arsenal have decent players for the central midfield positions and they are going well in the premier league but surely they need more quality and depth to compete with the very best and consistently as well.
Arsenal must make sure they convince Jorginho to join Emirates. Will he be a gunner, only time will tell?
