Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, has provided explanations for why Jorginho was acquired from Chelsea.
He believes that Jorginho’s experience will be a huge advantage in their pursuit of the Premier League championship.
The Gunners have announced that they and Chelsea have reached a £12 million agreement to sign the Italian international.
Since the 31-year-old was a Manchester City assistant coach, Arteta has been a fan.
“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.
“We are so pleased to sign Jorginho and welcome him and his family to the club,” Arteta told Arsenal’s official website.
