Sam Allardyce has said that Arsenal have made the right decision by signing Jorginho on the deadline day. He has also said that the decision will also benefit the long-term future of the player.

Sam has also said that the signing of Jorginho will also add squad depth for the rest of the season. Hence, it looks like the Gunners have a team perfectly set for the rest of the season.


According to many pundits, Arsenal have made a bargain signing in the January transfer window with the signing of Jorginho. They signed him from Chelsea for only 12 million. Hence, it is also because his contract was expiring in the next summer transfer window. Therefore, Chelsea also had to cash out on the situation. This is also because they knew that they would complete the record signing of Enzo Fernandes. Hence, Jorginho also knew that he would get very limited game time.

Therefore, Chelsea also had to sell him to balance their financial books. Hence, Arsenal took advantage of the situation to get the Italian midfielder for a bargain price. Jorginho was also very impressed with the project of the Gunners. Hence, he decided to sign with the club on a two and a half year contract at the age of 31. Jorginho will also add squad depth and leadership to the team. Hence, the youngsters will learn so much things from him.


Arsenal wanted to sign Moises Caicedo. However, they could not convince Brighton to sell Moises Caicedo in the January transfer window. Hence, in the end, they signed Jorginho from Chelsea. Although, it looks like they have not made a panic signing. Jorginho signing fits the Gunners perfectly. Hence, manager Mikel Arteta was also very happy with the signing of the Italian midfielder. Legendary manager Sam Allardyce has also praised the signing of Jorginho.

He further said, “Yeah, another one because if you want somebody in midfield, Jorginho, to be able to pinch him from Chelsea it’s not an easy task,”. “The need has obviously been great because they haven’t got Caicedo from Brighton that they wanted. “So they have gone for a very experienced European player, across Europe and the Premier League. He can slot into Arsenal’s team quite easily and do what they like doing, which is he definitely keeps the ball. “He definitely is one of those anchor men who doesn’t give the ball away, sits in the pocket, in front of the back four and keeps the ball moving, keeps it moving forward which is very important for Arsenal at the minute.

Hence, day by day, it is looking like Arsenal have got a big bargain in the form of Jorginho in the January transfer window. However, the Gunners will hope that he is not another signing from Chelsea like Willian. Jorginho is bringing his experience and winning mentality to the Gunners for his rest of the contract.
