Arsenal have announced the signing of Italian Midfielder Jorginho from Chelsea on an one and half year deal worth £12m.
According to Arsenal’s official website, the 31-year-old midfielder, who has made 143 Premier League appearances, will be joining with a vast amount of experience of both club and international football.
In addition to making nearly 500 club appearances during his career, he has been a regular in the Italy national team squad for more than five years, making 46 appearances and winning Euro 2020 with his country.
Sporting Director Edu said: “Jorginho is an established professional with a strong mentality who brings quality and experience into our squad.
“He is a player who fits our style of play, and he joins us at a very good moment where he can contribute in a key position to help maintain our momentum. We welcome Jorginho to Arsenal.”
Manager Mikel Arteta added: “Jorginho is a midfield player with intelligence, deep leadership skills and a huge amount of Premier League and international experience. Jorginho has won in his career, but he still has the hunger and huge willingness to contribute here.
“We are so pleased to sign Jorginho and welcome him and his family to the club.”
Jorginho will wear the number 20 shirt and will immediately join up with his new teammates ahead of Saturday’s match at Everton.
