Italian press: Arsenal chasing Brazilian youngster

Several sources say Sky Italia have reported Arsenal’s interest in Brazilian starlet Jorginho, who plays for Serie B side Hellas Verona.

The young midfielder has impressed some of the big boys in Italian football, with AC Milan, Lazio, Napoli and Fiorentina also all said to be interested in the player.

Little is known about the 21-year-old, but Arsenal are likely to be on the market for a midfielder to fill in for the injured duo Abou Diaby and Mikel Arteta, and we all know Arsene Wenger likes a bargain if he can find one. Supposedly Jorginho would only command aroudn €4milllion.

101greatgoals provide a video of his only goal this season, but also dismiss the story due to a lack of concrete evidence or sources. I must admit I found it tricky finding the original story online, just a few blogs such as this one reporting the story.

One would hope we are feeling a little more ambitious than this in the January transfer window. However, with the end of the month just a few days away now it is unlikely that we will have much to celebrate by the end of it.
