Arsenal have switched their attentions to Chelsea’s Jorginho in their search for a new central midfielder.
A deal is said to be a long way off, but work towards the transfer has started, with sources indicating it is possible ahead of the transfer deadline.
The news comes as Arsenal spent the day deliberating whether to make a third offer for Moises Caicedo amid fears they could damage their relationship with Brighton if they submit an improved bid.
Gunners chiefs were deliberating whether to improve upon their latest offer of up to £70million on Monday.
Arsenal have a good relationship with Brighton, the club successfully signing Ben White from the Amex Stadium in a deal worth £50million ahead of the 2021-22 season.
Indeed, there is an acknowledgement behind the scenes at the Emirates that – as much as they want Caicedo – they don’t want to disrespect the south-coast club.
