Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been handed a hefty blow to their January transfer plans, with the news a prime target is set to agree a deal elsewhere.
TalkSport report claims from Sky Italia which indicate that Napoli midfielder Jorginho has begun discussions with the Naples outfit regarding a new contract, ruling out a January switch to the Premier League.
Serie A giants Napoli are determined to secure the long-term future of 23-year-old Jorginho, with Arsenal’s attention increasing as they look to secure defensive-midfielder to compete with first-team regular Francis Coquelin.
With Jorginho looking likely to agree a new deal with the Naples outfit, Arsenal look set to have to find other options and our Arsenal regulars are concerned they could miss out on any sort of deal in this area.
As Arsenal are fighting hard with Manchester City and Manchester United for the Premier League title, any failures in the transfer market could prove decisive as the title race progresses.
