Earlier this week, Arsenal’s Jorginho admitted he will definitely return to Serie A at some point in his career and also revealed that he misses Italy.
TV Play have interviewed the 31-year-old’s agent, Joao Santos, and he has refused to rule out a move back to Italy for the former Napoli star.
“Return to Italy? In football, never say never, today Arsenal are his priority,” he said.
At the start of this year, Arsenal signed the midfielder from Chelsea and handed him a deal until 2024. He has an option for another year and that hasn’t been exercised so far.
Jorginho has made four league starts in Arsenal’s last five matches and that’s helped him return to the Italy squad after five months. His agent has admitted the player is delighted to have returned to the national team for this month’s international break.
“I think [Luciano] Spalletti knows Jorginho very well, if he called him it’s because he needs a player with his characteristics,” Santos explained.
“There is always enthusiasm when you go to the national team. There is always enthusiasm, no one ever goes to the national team for the sake of it. He is an experienced player and represents an added value for the national team.”
On Friday, the Arsenal player missed a penalty in Italy’s victory over North Macedonia. He was on the pitch for 62 minutes before being replaced by AS Roma’s Bryan Cristante.
