Arsenal Transfer Round-up Lacazette and Torreira swap

Arsenal have been linked with a move for the Chelsea midfielder Jorginho.

It will be interesting to see if the Gunners make a move for the 28-year-old midfielder in the coming weeks now.

Arsenal need someone to control the tempo of their play and the former Napoli midfielder could prove to be an ideal addition to their squad.

Jorginho is an excellent passer from the deep and he could be the ideal partner for someone like Granit Xhaka.

The London club have been linked with the likes of Houssem Aouar as well.

Arteta has improved his squad with the signings of Willian and Gabriel this summer and it will be interesting to see if he can wrap up the window with the signing of a quality central midfielder.

The 28-year-old Chelsea player has significant experience of the Premier League and he should be able to settle in quickly and make an immediate impact at Arsenal if he joins the club.

Chelsea paid £57 million for him and it will be interesting to see how much they demand from Arsenal.

The Italian international is at the peak of his career right now and he’s unlikely to be available on a bargain. Chelsea will probably look to recoup most of what they paid for him.

It remains to be seen whether Arsenal are willing to break the bank for the deep-lying midfielder in the coming weeks.
