A number of Chelsea fans have reacted to reports from Sky Sports on Thursday suggesting that Arsenal are interested in signing Jorginho.
The Gunners are looking to strengthen their options in the middle of the park before the deadline passes.
And it appears that one of the names on the club’s radar is Jorginho, according to Sky Sports. It is not clear what the Blues’ stance on the Italy international’s future would be.
However, Sky does note that Jorginho has captained Chelsea in both of their opening two Premier League games. So it would appear that Arsenal may struggle to get a deal done should they decide to confirm their interest with a bid.
Interestingly, there appears to be something of a mixed reaction to the reports. Admittedly, there are some who would clearly have few qualms about seeing Jorginho leave, even if he was to move to the Emirates.
However, there are plenty of Chelsea fans who feel that letting him join the Gunners would be a huge mistake.
He may have come in for criticism at times. But some believe that he would be absolutely perfect for Mikel Arteta’s side. They have implored Chelsea to only sell him to a club overseas if he is going to be moved on this summer.
Here is how some of the fans have reacted to the reports…
He may not fit our system but strengthen our opponent like that can’t be more irritating, especially when Jorginho is such a quality player😭

Agree-don’t sell a quality player in their prime to a direct, improving rival. However, I’d support us letting him go flourish overseas if he isn’t in Lamps plans

Chelsea cannot let Arteta utilize a player like Jorginho. Arteta-Ball is similar to Pep-Ball in a few ways.
If they manage to sign him, Arteta will show the Chelsea fan base how much Quality Jorgi has. He will be the heartbeat of the entire system #CFC

Jorginho will improve Arsenal significantly. He is a great player but just does not fit our system.
Artetas system however fits perfectly.

It would be a mistake to let Jorginho go to a local club, he would be a perfect addition to Arteta’s team.
If he isn’t on Frank’s plan I’d rather Chelsea to sell him to a non-English club.#CFC

Jorginho would be Arsenal’s best midfielder btw
