Within six months of acquiring Jorginho from Chelsea, Arsenal is allegedly willing to let him go.

The Italian midfielder signed an 18-month contract with the Gunners in January after leaving the Blues for a cost of £12 million. However, it appears that Mikel Arteta’s team is willing to let him go this summer in order to create room for their top summer targets.

Although they won’t actively try to persuade Jorginho to leave, they are aware that his departure may help make room for Moises Caicedo and Declan Rice to join the team. In addition to Granit Xhaka, who has attracted interest from Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen, Albert Sambi Lokonga may also be transferred.

In order for the Gunners to compete for the Premier League championship in the second half of the season, Jorginho, 31, was brought in as a temporary solution. Although he played in 14 league games, his squad was unable to defeat Manchester City and lose the title.

Jorge Luiz Frello Filho has the attention of Serie A clubs like Lazio, AC Milan, and Napoli. The notable manager of Lazio is Maurizio Sarri, who in July 2018 brought Jorginho with him from Napoli to Chelsea.

Declan Rice, who played a crucial role in helping West Ham United win the UEFA Europa Conference League against Fiorentina on June 7, is rumoured to be the top choice to join Arsenal.

This season, Arsenal finished second in the league, five points behind Manchester City. Manchester United secured the third spot, trailing the Gunners by nine points, but they also claimed the EFL Cup in February and reached the FA Cup final.

On June 3, Arsenal suffered a 2-1 defeat to Manchester City in the championship game at Wembley, dashing their hopes of winning the Premier League.
