Reports in Italy are claiming Arsenal have seen a bid rejected for Napoli midfielder, Jorginho.
Jorginho, 25, has been one of Napoli’s best midfielder since he completed a £9.5m from Hellas Verona in 2014 and has been constantly linked with a move to the Emirates.
The Brazilian is regarded as one of Serie A’s gifted deeplying playmaker but hasn’t received the sort of recognition his talents deserve. However, Wenger who has an eye for talent is a big fan of the player.
According to Gazetta Dello Sport via 101 Great Goals, Napoli have rejected a €17m bid from Arsenal, insisting that the centre midfielder is not for sale.
Wenger is reportedly in the market for a replacement for Santi Cazorla and has been linked with a host of names.
Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina and Schalke’s Leon Goretzka has been linked with a move to the Emirates but Arsenal aren’t close to signing any of them.
With the latest disappointment in the attempt to sign Jorginho, Arsenal will have to continue looking elsewhere for reinforcements.
