Thomas Partey, a standout for Arsenal, may miss up to six weeks due to a groin injury. The Gunners stated Partey sustained a groin injury earlier in the week; thus, he was not included in the matchday squad that defeated Manchester United on Sunday.
According to the most recent sources, the 30-year-old might play again following the international break in October.
Nicolas Pepe, who plays for Arsenal, might go to a team called Besiktas in Turkey this week. He did not want to join them earlier this summer, but now it looks like Arsenal might sell him to them for a fair amount.
Before moving to Besiktas, Pepe will have a medical exam. Jorginho’s agent also stated that the 31-year-old is just concerned about Arsenal and has never considered leaving the team.
Fenerbahce was rumored to be interested in signing Jorginho. Still, with Partey’s recent setback with an injury, Mikel Arteta will likely look to the Italian midfielder and Declan Rice to serve as the Gunners’ midfield’s rock.
Jorginho Discusses Arsenal’s Thrilling 3-1 Victory Over Manchester United
In a very interesting match where Arsenal came from behind to beat Manchester United 3-1 on Sunday, September 3, Jorginho only got to play for one minute. But he was very happy about the win! Arsenal scored two late goals from Declan Rice and Gabriel Jesus to secure the victory and get complete three points.
The unexpected victory for Arsenal over Erik ten Hag’s Red Devils prompted the Italian midfielder to post on Instagram in response:
United took the lead in the 27th minute on a powerful shot from Marcus Rashford. 35 seconds later, Martin Odegaard swiftly brought the home team at the Emirates back into the game.
Jesus then came off the bench to seal the victory five minutes after Rice scored his first goal for the team in the 90+6th minute. The North Londoners are now in sixth place in the league going into the break.
Arsenal Should Not Sell Jorginho
The Gunners should stick onto Jorginho at least until January, even if a big offer for him came through and he wanted to leave.
Partey is not fit to play right now, as we mentioned earlier. However, Jorginho is a player who has a lot of experience, and he can be a good addition to this Arsenal team.
It might be useful before Arsenal’s first Champions League campaign since the 2016–17 campaign, a competition the Italy international has unquestionably won.
Overall, Mikel Arteta could not replace Jorginho now that the transfer window in England has closed because he still has a lot to give.
The Spaniard will likely favor players like Rice and Martin Odegaard in the middle of the field, but Jorginho may still contribute this season, especially with Partey out injured.
Jorginho might not want to go and play in Turkey as it stands. He used to play for Chelsea and even started games for both Arsenal and another team in London last season. This shows that he is still a good player who can play really well.
