It has been known for a long time that Arsenal intends to strengthen the midfield by the end of the transfer window. Weeks ago, Lyon's Hussein Aouar and Athletico Madrid player Thomas Party were emphasized as the main targets, but the British Sky brings us information that Mikel Arteta is preparing to attack Jorginho.
Jorginho doesn't seem to be in Maurizio Sarri's plans. He was great in Napoli but he used to have good games at Chelsea, but sometimes he was totally bad and many do not know if Jorginho will leave their club It sounds like thunder from a clear sky, but it's not like that.
Because the Spaniard was part of the professional staff of Pep Guardiola in 2018, when Manchester City wanted to bring the Italian national team player. The native Brazilian then decided to accompany Maurizio Sari to Stamford Bridge.
The expert left, the midfielder stayed. And as there are no indications that the Partey or Aouar will arrive at the Emirates, that is, as they both exceed the reach of Arsenal's power payments, Arteta decided to turn to a football player whose playing qualities he appreciates.
Aouar and Partey would strengthen the midfield
Lucas Torreira is close to Atletico and Arsenal is also playing that card in order to try to win the Partey. The plan is to sell Mateo Guendouzi as well, and then the Gunners will be left with Granit Xhaka, Mohamed Elneny (close to a loan to Turkey), Dani Ceballos and Joe Wilock - to put it mildly, a midfielder who does not instill confidence, or with whom you can not seriously fight for the Champions League in a competition such as the Premier League.
George's potential signature would improve the situation to a certain extent, although even that would not be a guarantee of fulfilling Arsenal's ambitions. By bringing Aouar and the Partey, the club from north London could shoot high.
In other words, he would act much more seriously in the eyes of the rival from the big six. However, even the 28-year-old from Chelsea will not be a cheap acquisition. The blues brought him to the summer of 2018 for 57,000,000 euros.
From that moment, he played around 100 games in all competitions and scored 10 goals because he quickly profiled himself as the first choice to take a penalty. It remains for Arsenal to find funds for a serious midfielder, or two, by the end of the transfer window, so that the scenario from the previous four seasons, when he failed to finish the championship among the best four teams, does not happen again.
Arsenal fans have been losing patience for many years and do not seem to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The club that once won the Champions League and played in the Champions League final in 2005 is now fighting for the top 4.
Without the players they need in all positions, they will hardly be able to reach the position that leads to the Champions League.
