Jorginho expected to agree new Arsenal contract

Jorginho has been offered a new contract by Arsenal and is expected to agree it.

The 32 year old was signed from Chelsea in January 2023, on an initial 18 month contract, although there was an option to extend that by a further year.

That options expires shortly, but, instead of exercising it, the club have offered the Italian a new two year deal.

Although he is not a regular starter under Mikel Arteta, he often features in the bigger games, and he is a major influence off the field and in the dressing room on some of the younger players in the squad.

He had been linked with a return to Italy this summer, with Juventus among the clubs interested iin signing him.

However, he has now been sufficiently convinced that his immediate future lies at the Emirates, which could spell the end of Thomas Partey’s Arsenal career. Like Jorginho he is the wrong side of 30, and he has been available for far fewer games this season because of fitness issues.
