Discussing information showing that Barcelona plans to recruit Jorginho, Gabriel Agbonlahor said that there will be no way Arsenal will accept the midfielder’s departure, because Jorginho and Declan Rice are the only two options that the Gunners have. used as a central midfielder when Thomas Partey is injured.
The former English striker commented:
“I think if you look at the match against Man City, no one expected Jorginho to start. But, he joined the starting lineup and played very well.”
“When you have Thomas Partey’s injury problem, if you let Jorginho go, you might only have Declan Rice and no one else.”
“Mohamed Elneny is not qualified to play football in the Premier League. You need Jorginho’s experience and ability in the title race.”
“I think Jorginho is a player that Arteta will definitely keep for the whole season.”
In fact, although Jorginho’s contract will expire next summer, Arsenal is still in control with the option to extend it for another 12 months. Therefore, they absolutely do not face pressure to sell this midfielder.
