Arsenal are reportedly on the brink of announcing a contract extension for experienced midfielder Jorginho, as per reports from Teamnewsandtix.

Jorginho, who made the move to Arsenal from Chelsea in January 2023 for a fee of £12 million, initially signed a two-year contract with an option for a further year. Since his arrival, the Italian midfielder has cemented his place as a key figure both on and off the pitch for the Gunners.

With his contract set to expire at the end of the current season, Arsenal have moved swiftly to secure Jorginho’s services for the foreseeable future. Despite interest from several European clubs, including Barcelona, Juventus, and Napoli, Jorginho sought assurances regarding his future at Arsenal beyond the initial option year. Consequently, the club is reportedly offering him a new two-year deal, extending his stay until 2026.

With the focus solely on pursuing success in the Premier League, the Gunners are also working to bolster the squad for the upcoming season. While Manchester City are considered favourites to win the title this season, the Gunners’ aspirations hinge on potential slip-ups from Pep Guardiola’s side in their remaining matches.

Manager Mikel Arteta and Technical Director Edu Gaspar have made a decisive move regarding Jorginho’s future at the club. According to renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano, progress has been made in contract negotiations, with both parties optimistic about reaching an agreement soon.

Romano confirmed in his Daily Briefing last week that talks are at an advanced stage, with Jorginho likely to commit his future to Arsenal. Addressing previous speculation linking Jorginho with a move to Juventus, Romano dismissed such reports, highlighting the midfielder’s satisfaction with life in north London.

While Jorginho’s potential contract extension brings delight to Arsenal supporters, it also prompts discussions about the future of his teammate Thomas Partey. With Partey nearing the final year of his contract and concerns over his injury record, Arsenal may entertain offers for the Ghanaian midfielder, especially if lucrative bids from Saudi clubs materialise.
