Jorginho and Mikel Arteta
Jorginho is happy about the finished story.
The biggest influence in his arrival was Mikel Arteta. The Spaniard did a great thing because he is aware of how much Jorginho can help Arsenal in their quest for the title. “He was a big influence," he said. "I know that he tried a few times to get me before and it didn’t happen due to other reasons, not because of my wishes.
So of course, he had a big influence.
I’m very excited for this new challenge, and I just can’t wait to be on the pitch to be honest! Everything has happened so fast. I was a bit surprised, but I took the opportunity of this amazing challenge.
It’s an important shirt.
It’s an amazing club, a big one, and I’m really excited and happy to be here”. Sporting director Edu also did not forget to praise Jorginho's qualities “Jorginho is an established professional with a strong mentality who brings quality and experience into our squad.
"He is a player who fits our style of play, and he joins us at a very good moment where he can contribute in a key position to help maintain our momentum. We welcome Jorginho to Arsenal”.
