Arsenal could reportedly turn to Napoli playmaker Jorginho next summer as they prepare for the possible departures of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.

The future of Arsenal’s key attacking outlets has long been documented in the press, while the club’s problems in midfield have recently been brought into focus following the form of Granit Xhaka and problematic injury status of Santi Cazorla.

According to Tuttomercato, the Gunners could look to make a move for the 25-year-old next year, following an impressive run at Napoli having joined from Hellas Verona in 2014.

Jorginho, who is eligible for both Italy and Brazil at international level, currently has a contract that runs until 2020, leaving it to be speculated that Napoli will be unlikely to consider a sale any earlier than next summer.

The holding man has made 104 appearances for Napoli since his arrival at I Ciucciarelli three years ago.
