Arsenal is reportedly keen on signing Jorginho from London rivals Chelsea before the end of the current transfer.
The Gunners have failed in their bids for other midfield targets and are now weighing up a move for the Brazilian-born midfielder.
He is however keen to find an alternative with the end of the summer transfer fast approaching.
Jorginho was linked with the exit door at Stamford Bridge earlier in the summer as speculation suggested he could complete a switch to Juventus.
Jorginho has been on Arteta’a radar for some time given he was subject to interest from Man City during the Spaniard’s time as Pep Guardiola’s no.2.
