Arsenal: Journalist claims Jorginho is a ‘brilliant’ signing
Journalist Paul Brown has raved about Arsenal’s ‘brilliant’ decision to sign Jorginho in January.
The Lowdown: Deadline day switch
Mikel Arteta’s side spent £12m for the Italian midfielder’s services on transfer deadline day, due in part to the injury to Mohamed Elneny and their decision to loan out Albert Sambi Lokonga to Crystal Palace.
The switch to north London ends Jorginho’s spell of nearly five years at Stamford Bridge, in which time he won the Champions League and the Europa League with the Blues.
The Latest: Brown praises Arsenal
Brown lauded Arsenal and their new signing, as he believes that he could help them land the Premier League title when speaking to GiveMeSport.
He stated: “I honestly feel like people are underestimating just how brilliant a signing this is going to be for Arsenal; I genuinely think this could be the signing that wins them the title.
“I thought for a long, long time the one thing they miss in that midfield is a kind of metronome passer who can dominate a game simply by keeping the ball and recycling it and sending it into the right areas of the pitch and feeding players in all of Arsenal’s attacking positions.”
The Verdict: More experience
We believe that Arsenal have added a wise midfielder into their ranks, as Jorginho is someone who offers a lot of experience.
TalkSport’s Simon Jordan has urged some Arsenal fans to ‘keep faith’ in the board after signing the player, and we can see why.
The Italian is someone who has played over 100 games in England’s and Italy’s top flights, which is the mark of someone who’s well-versed at the highest level.
With the Gunners setting their sights on the title, they needed to bring in players who are going to help them reach that objective.
Jorginho fits that bill from our standpoint as he’s picked up plenty of winners’ medals in his time as a player and can bring that experience into a young Arsenal dressing room.
