Premier League rivals Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Chelsea midfielder Jorginho before Tuesday night’s transfer deadline.

After having several bids for Moises Caicedo rejected by Brighton, Arsenal have now identified Jorginho as a suitable signing.

According to Daily Mail, Chelsea are open to cashing in on Jorginho in January rather than lose him on a free transfer at the end of the season.

The chance to raise some cash also appeals to Chelsea’s hierarchy as the Blues push ahead with a potential record-breaking pursuit of Enzo Fernandez.

Italy international Jorginho has made more than 200 appearances for Chelsea since being signed from Napoli in 2018, winning the Champions League and Europa League during his spell at Stamford Bridge.
