Arsenal warned by agent to move for Napoli midfielder soon

Arsenal have been warned by the agent of Jorginho that a deal for the Napoli midfielder will be “more difficult” if they leave it any longer.

The Gunners have signed two players so far this summer, with Alexandre Lacazette joining Sead Kolasinac at the Emirates Stadium.

Reports claim that midfielder Jorginho could be the next arrival, with Arsene Wenger said to be a fan of the 25-year-old.

It is unknown how much Napoli are demanding for Jorginho – although there are spurious claims that Arsenal have already had a £15million bid rejected.

The agent of the player, Joao Santos, has urged Arsenal to act quickly if they want him.

“Arsenal? No one has contacted me,” Santos told Radio CRC.

“Jorginho is fine in Naples, it is obvious that some managers have taken an interest in him, but my client has only Napoli in the sights for this year, and his goal is to do better than last year.

“The more time passes, the more difficult it is for the player to move.

“There is no release clause in his contract. If there comes a club with so much money and [club president Aurelio] De Laurentiis is interested in the figure offered, [he] will sell him.”
