ARSENAL have reportedly agreed a deal to sign Jorginho from Chelsea for £12million.
Mikel Arteta is on the search for a midfielder with Brighton so far refusing to sell number one target Moises Caicedo.
The Gunners launched a third bid for Brighton star Caicedo worth £75million, but reports say their chase for the 21-year-old is over – and now Jorginho is on his way to the Emirates.
It is a fee that falls just £5m short of the Seagulls’ asking price for the Ecuadorian.
Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi has spoken after the Seagulls’ stunning 2-1 FA Cup win over Liverpool, saying: “we are ready to go forward without him.”
