The imminent departure of French midfielder Adrien Rabiot from Juventus has set the stage for a potential move that could see Arsenal midfielder Jorginho don the black and white stripes of the Serie A giants.

As Rabiot’s contract winds down to its expiration, Juventus are on the lookout for a suitable replacement, and Jorginho appears to fit the bill. With no transfer fee involved, the 29-year-old French midfielder has garnered interest from several clubs, with Newcastle United, Manchester United, and his current club Arsenal reportedly keeping tabs on his situation.

Rabiot’s contributions to Juventus this season have been notable, featuring prominently in 31 games for the Italian powerhouse. As Juventus prepares to fill the void left by his departure, attention has turned to Jorginho, whose contract with Arsenal is also set to conclude at the season’s end.

Jorginho, 32, has expressed openness to a return to Serie A for the 2024/25 campaign, although interest from clubs in other regions, particularly Europe and Asia, has added a layer of complexity to the transfer dynamics. During the winter transfer window, European and Asian clubs, including Fenerbahce, Galatasaray, Al-Nassr, and Al-Ettifaq from the Saudi Pro League, have reportedly shown interest in acquiring his services, according to sources.

With Jorginho’s future at Arsenal uncertain pending contract negotiations, Juventus stands poised to make a move for the seasoned midfielder. His potential arrival in Turin could provide a strategic boost to Juventus’ midfield lineup, particularly as the club seeks to maintain its competitive edge in Serie A and beyond.

Jorginho’s unexpected prominence in Arsenal’s midfield this season has not gone unnoticed, with his presence in the starting eleven facilitating the effectiveness of players like Declan Rice further up the pitch. As the summer transfer window approaches, the race for Jorginho’s signature is set to intensify, with Juventus positioning themselves as strong contenders should the Italian maestro opt for a return to his homeland.
