Gunners ready to challenge Rossoneri for Verona youngster.
Arsenal are set to challenge AC Milan for the signature of 21-year-old winger Jorginho this summer, according to TransferMarketWeb.
fanatix tickets – Barclays Premier League tickets are still available for next weekend’s games.
Sunderland vs Arsenal tickets are on sale from £23 for this Saturday’s match at the Stadium of Light.
The Brazilian is currently playing for Italian side Hellas Verona and the youngster has impressed in the Serie B outfit’s promotion push this term.
Last month, the Metro reported that the Gunners’ Italian based scout Tony Banfield has watched the wide-man on a number of occasions and implored Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to sign him.
With Theo Walcott now employed in a central striking role, Wenger may feel there is room for another winger at the Emirates Stadium but the Frenchman will face competition from AC Milan for Jorginho’s signature.
Jorginho has a £3.5 million release clause, but this is exclusively for clubs outside Italy, giving Arsenal a distinct advantage over Massimo Allegri’s side.
The young wide-man has not earned a cap for Brazil, but his Italian citizenship means a work permit would not be an issue.
