Arsenal have seen a £15m bid rejected by Napoli for Jorginho.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Football Italia), Napoli have turned down a £15 million approach from Arsenal for their pass master Jorginho.
The report further added that while the Italy international isn’t necessarily guaranteed a first-team place at the San Paolo, the Partenopei rebuffed the approach and have advised the Premier League side Jorginho is going nowhere.
The 25-year-old joined Napoli from Hellas Verona in 2014 and has made steady progress with the club since.
The Brazilian-born midfielder is renowned for his ability to control matches from the base of midfield.
With Santi Cazorla increasingly prone to injuries, manager Arsene Wenger would love another player in his squad who can manage a game from central midfield with grace and purpose. Jorginho is a man who has shown in Italian football he can tick those boxes.
