Arsenal are interested in capturing the signature of Napoli midfield ace Jorginho.

Italian news outlet Tuttomercato reported that Arsenal are monitoring the midfielder’s situation at the current Serie-A league leaders, and will look to sign the player in the summer transfer window.

Napoli have enjoyed an incredible start to the season with 10 wins from their 11 games played, with forwards Lorenzo Insigne and Dries Mertens’ capturing Europe’s attention with their scintillating form.

However Italian international Jorginho has been an unglorified star man in Maurizio Sarri’s attacking minded team.

After securing a quality striker in Alexandre Lacazette in the summer transfer window, the North Londoners are looking to strengthen in the middle of the park, with an ageing Santi Carzola, and some fresh competition for starting eleven favourites Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey.

However after some quality performances so far this season Jorginho could prove to be the missing piece of the puzzle for an inconsistent Arsenal side.

It’s not just this season where the Italian international has been noticed for his influence in the centre of midfield. When Roma’s Belgium terrier Radja Nainggolan was asked who his most fearsome opponent had been he answered “I must name Jorginho, because it is very difficult to mark him out of action. “He distributes the ball very quickly, and you get tired running after it. It takes a lot of energy to prevent him from executing his plan.”

It is through Jorginho where the eye catching Napoli counter attacks seen this season get produced from. And it is this style of play which sees the Italian have the most completed passes in Europe for 2017.

Nevertheless if Napoli continue their assault on the Serie-A title it is no doubt their star players will be getting approached from all the top sides in Europe. But with the promise of playing in the Premier League and moving to play for arguably the biggest team in London, you may just be seeing Jorginho tearing up English sides next year.
