Arsenal have shown an interest in Napoli midfielder Jorginho, according to the player’s agent.
The report suggests the Gunners had a bid turned down for the 24-year-old in January, while Arsenal scouts are though to have watched the midfielder repeatedly this season.
And Joao Santos, Jorginho’s representative, has confirmed Arsenal’s interest.
“Interest from Arsenal? It’s true,” Santos told Radio Kiss. “After the game against Palermo, compliments arrived from Real Madrid as well. Only compliments, nothing more. But it’s pleasing to receive expressions of respect from one of the most prestigious clubs in the world.”
