Arsenal have found another leader for the dressing room in the form of new signing Jorginho. Hence, the signing of the Italian midfielder has also increased their squad depth.
This also strengthens their quest for the Premier League title this season. Hence, it looks like Mikel Arteta has made a brilliant that will go under the radar this season.
ARSENAL WILL BENEFIT FROM THE LEADERSHIP SKILLS OF JORGINHO
Arsenal completed the signing of Jorginho from Chelsea on the deadline day of the January transfer window. However, a number of Gunners fans were little disappointed. It is because many of them wanted to also see Moises Caicedo in the Gunners shirt. However, the Gunners failed with their 60 and 70 million bids. Although, one thing is sure that signing Jorginho is not at all bad business. This is because the Italian midfielder has years of experience playing in the Premier League. He has also won numerous titles including the Champions League with Chelsea. His leadership skills will also help the Gunners in the title race.
Arsenal Manager Mikel Arteta and Sporting director Edu Gaspar have also experienced happiness after the completion of the deal. Edu Gaspar 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. Whereas Arteta said, “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.
MIKEL ARTETA HAS MADE SMART SIGNINGS IN THE JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW
Arsenal signed three players in the January transfer window. The players were Leandro Trossard, Jakub Kiwior and Jorginho. They were also successful in loaning out fringe players. They loaned out players liked Cedric and Albert Sambi Lokonga. The Gunners also managed to loan out Marquinhos to Norwich City for regular game time. Hence, it looks all the pieces of puzzle fell in place for the Gunners in the January transfer window. They have also managed to have squad depth for the rest of the season.
Arsenal star striker Gabriel Jesus is also getting to fitness on the schedule. Hence, Mikel Arteta has decided not to sign a new striker in the January transfer window. Eddie Nketiah is also in brilliant form. Gabriel Martinelli can also do a job for the striker role. Hence, in the end, the Gunners did not prioritise the center-forward signing. The signing of Trossard is already having a positive impact. Jakub Kiwior and Jorginho are also expected to hit the ground running for the Gunners.
Hence, it looks like Arsenal are set for the second half of the season. They will now focus on winning the Premier League and Europa League title this season. However, their main priority will be to finish in the top 4 to qualify for the Champions League next season. Hence, all the focus shifts on Mikel Arteta and the players to get the results.
