Jorginho Offered New Arsenal Contract

Jorginho Offered New Arsenal Contract

Arsenal have offered Jorginho a new contract and the midfielder is expected to sign it.

Jorginho joined the Gunners from London rivals Chelsea for £12million in January 2023.

The Italian international signed an 18-month deal with the option of a further year.

The 32-year-old has been a crucial squad member for Mikel Arteta since his arrival and has played 35 times in all competitions for Arsenal this season.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has been effusive in his praise of Jorginho in recent months.

Following Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Liverpool in February, Arteta said: “For all the kids at the club, if you want to look at somebody, just look at him.

“He’s won everything but you ask him not to play or play one minute last week he’s happy to go there. Ask him to play 90 minutes at that rhythm and he’s able to do that. I’m really lucky to have players like this.

“It’s a game that I had in my mind. I was imagining how much we were going to need him. He’s a really intelligent player, his biggest quality is that he makes the people around him better. He connects everybody. I think he was man of the match.”
