Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is ‘still being targeted by Arsenal’ as the Gunners’ pursuit of Houssem Aouar looks set to end in failure

  • Frank Lampard looks set to include Jorginho in his Chelsea plans for this season 
  • The Brazilian midfielder has been attracting interest from Arsenal this summer  
  • Jorginho scored two penalties on Saturday as the Blues beat Crystal Palace 4-0 
  • However, Arsenal are still chasing Jorginho after their Houssem Aouar bid failed

Jorginho could still make a shock move across London this summer, with Arsenal maintaining their interest in the Chelsea midfielder.  

The Brazilian has been linked with a David Luiz-esque move across the divide this summer, despite appearing to be a firm part of Frank Lampard’s plans. 

Jorginho has three goals and an assist in his first three Premier League games this term, scoring a double in a 4-0 demolition of Crystal Palace on Saturday.
