Jorginho's Agent Reveals Controversial Chelsea to Arsenal Transfer

Jorginho’s agent has revealed how Arsenal’s football director, Edu Gaspar, played a crucial role in convincing the midfielder to make a late switch from Chelsea to Arsenal on deadline day. The move came as a surprise to many, given Jorginho’s success at Chelsea, where he won numerous trophies including the Champions League. However, the Italian international could now add to his trophy cabinet with a first Premier League title.

Jorginho only discovered he was available for transfer late in the window after it emerged that Chelsea were trying to sign Enzo Fernandez. Arsenal turned their attention to the Italian Euros winner after they missed out on Brighton’s Moises Caicedo. It only took a quick phone call from Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta to convince Jorginho to swap Stamford Bridge for the Emirates.

Jorginho’s agent, Joao Santos, revealed that Edu Gaspar was the driving force behind the deal. He said: “Two days before the transfer market closed, we saw that Chelsea worked to sign Enzo Fernandez. Edu Gaspar wanted the boy and so we made it happen. A new project – he did very well at Chelsea, winning a lot as a team and personally.”

Despite interest from Italian teams, Jorginho decided to make the move to Arsenal. He explained: “Arteta called me and it was all very quick, we made the deal in less than 48 hours. I had spoken to Chelsea and I knew I was no longer part of their plans. I wanted progress in my career and the Arsenal project suits me. It’s a young team that plays good football and fits my characteristics. Sometimes you must accept when you are out of a project and that things come to an end.”

Jorginho’s move to Arsenal has been met with mixed reactions from fans and pundits alike. Some believe that he will be a valuable addition to Arsenal’s midfield, while others have questioned whether he is the right fit for Arteta’s system. However, Jorginho has already shown glimpses of his quality in an Arsenal shirt, scoring a penalty in his debut against Manchester City.

If Jorginho can replicate his form from his time at Chelsea, then Arsenal could have a real gem on their hands. His ability to control the tempo of games and dictate play from deep could be crucial in helping Arsenal challenge for a top-four spot this season. However, it remains to be seen whether Jorginho can adapt to Arteta’s style of play and whether he can form a successful partnership with Thomas Partey in midfield.

Overall, Jorginho’s move to Arsenal was a surprise but it could turn out to be a shrewd piece of business by Edu Gaspar and Mikel Arteta. If Jorginho can settle quickly and make an impact on the pitch, then he could help Arsenal achieve their goals this season and beyond. Only time will tell whether Jorginho will be a success at Arsenal, but one thing is for sure – he has the talent and experience to make a real difference to the team.
