Confirmed: Jorginho signs new deal at Arsenal

Arsenal have confirmed that Jorginho has signed a new deal at the club, reported to run until June 2025.

The Gunners had an option to extend the Italy international’s current contract, an 18-month agreement signed in January 2023, by a further 12 months but the clause elapsed earlier in the season and we’ve renegotiated on new terms – reportedlu

Having recruited Jorginho from Chelsea after failing in a pursuit of Moises Caicedo, Mikel Arteta has been impressed by the midfielder’s consistency and the leadership roll he’s taken within the squad.

In total, he’s made 51 appearances for the Gunners, scoring a single goal – although he did crack a shot which cannoned off the back of Emi Martinez’s head and in, so there’s always that.

Reflecting on Jorginho’s decision to commit for the next year, Arteta said, “We’re delighted that Jorgi has signed a new contract with us. Jorgi is such an important part of our team, a role model with great leadership skills and a unique playing style ability which makes everybody better around him on the pitch.

“We’re very pleased that he and his family have committed with us and we’re all excited to continue this journey together.”

While Sporting Director Edu said, “I know everyone at the club will be very excited that Jorgi will continue to be with us, not only the players and coaches, but all the staff behind the scenes as well.

“It’s great that Jorginho remains with us, as we continue building to be better and stronger.”

Speaking about the new deal, the Italian international said, ““I’m really happy to stay, because it’s a privilege to be a part of this family. My family is happy, we are really well settled and there’s more to come!

“I feel really good here. Just to know that they appreciate me and want me to stay longer as well, it’s a big thing for me. I feel that I have more to do, so that’s the reason why I’m staying.”

Let’s hope he can be a part of continued progression and success with plenty of silverware along the way.

This deal makes a lot of sense.

Johnny 4 Hats

We went for Caicedo, we got Jorginho.

We went for Mudryk, we got Trossard.

We could’ve paid £180m for two bums.

Instead we paid £40m for two heroes.

Johnny 4 Hats

Massive shout out to Chelsea for the assist on both those deals.

What a bunch of silly fucking cunts.

AlexA

Not to mention the bargain price for Kai. Nor the fact they let Declan Rice go as a youth player.

yes

The word on Caicedo is he’s started to play well recently.
Meanwhile Enzo has fallen from the fans’ favour. As ever I imagine it’s all reactionary but still, interesting.

Man Manny

Sensible. Keep Partey too.
Replace Elneny with a younger, hungry DM ready to take the league by storm. Sell Lokonga: he is not that man.

Jeremy

Can we please now let go of the whole ‘he’s an ex Chelsea player so he’s crap’ attitude? It’s so reductive. Jorginho and Havertz have been brilliant. Willian was a flop but has been very good at Fulham.Just the wrong player in the wrong moment. Players like Luiz and Gallas were exactly what we expected them to be, sometimes good, sometime shite (like they were at Chelsea).

A Different George

My impression was that the Chelsea fans did not like him. Their heroes are people like John Terry. And who could live up to that standard?

Frosty

Down to that standard?

RamsdaleMyHero

Yup true but they surely are better than the ones from Brentford.

Warthog

Classy as ever Ramsdale’s mum…

Ebo

One of our most underrated signings. 12 million and has performed so much better than the midfielders Chelsea got to replace him for 100mil each, and also quickly become one of the leaders of the team and a sort of coach on the pitch who is as tactically advanced as Arteta and the rest of the staff, and everyone seems to love him. No brainer.

DinoFinn

Solid move to keep him for another year. As someone said before, he’ll probably become a coach.

TeeCee

Fine, as long as he’s never, ever allowed to coach anyone in taking penalties.

Okester

Really pleased with this. Think he’s been great. The error against Spurs earlier in the season the one blot, but could have happened to any of the players. He’s been solid and reliable every time he’s played. You can hardly believe he’d ever played in West London at all…

Ebo

Has literally happened to almost every one of our players. Other than maybe Gabriel you can probably find at least one if not three head scratching wtf moments for each player in our squad this season, and even Gabriel had that moment of picking up the ball which could’ve been a penalty. Errors are part of football, especially Arteta’s high risk football, as long as you keep them to a minimum.

Stonks

Wonder in what language were they talking in the picture… Arteta speaks Portuguese probably

Sheldon

Hope its on lesser wages, otherwise it doesn’t make sense to not have activated the previous 12 month clause. Unless there is some other clever accounting reason you’d want the contract to elapse, then start over.

Santi’s Phonebox

That contract required a minimum number of appearances for the player or there was no option to renew for an extra year for the club. Arteta chooses his team on what he needs to win the game, apparently not on appearance clauses.

Savage

It goes to show that you can’t judge a player on one error. Arteta has always been quick to defend his players when they made an error, and now you can see the wisdom of that.

Dr. Gooner

This is one of those moves that flies way under the radar but is actually hugely impactful. The very best clubs add talent like this: performs at a consistently high level when called upon, a short term deal, manageable wages, doesn’t have to play every day, a coach on and off the pitch.

Teryima Adi

Congrats, Jorginho. Continue to soar to greater heights.

Vonnie

Good news, now he can win the League with Arsenal, this season or next.

Abhi

I’d hope he takes Elneny’s role in the squad ie dependable, playable when needed, but with 3 better midfielders ahead of him in the pecking order. I.e. we need one big signing in midfield for sure, and two if the club feels they cannot depend on partey’s fitness anymore and choose to move him on.

Doghouse

Very pleased he’s staying, a top player who’s played at every level in all competitions with success and has had a major impact on our massive progress, his professionalism and knowledge as Miki has pointed out is invaluable to our younger squad members, not only that he’s been very much a part of our success this season especially when playing against the so called big teams in PL or in CL, classy guy..
