Fenerbahce Eye Gunners Star Amid Transfer Window Rumours

Arsenal’s Transfer Dilemma: The Jorginho Conundrum

The mighty Emirates Stadium has seen quite a few departures this summer, with Arsenal bidding adieu to a stunning 13 first-team players. Now, whispers in the corridors suggest that another player might be making an exit, with Fenerbahce reportedly casting covetous glances towards Jorginho.

Who’s Staying, Who’s Going?

Granit Xhaka, Folarin Balogun, Rob Holding, and Matt Turner – names that once donned the iconic red and white are no longer part of the squad. And as the dust begins to settle post the English transfer window’s closure, it’s worth noting that in certain parts of the world, like Turkey, the window remains very much open.

Indeed, The Express reports that Jorginho, the midfield maestro who traded the blue of Chelsea for Arsenal’s vibrant hues only a few months ago, is now being eyed by the Turkish giants, Fenerbahce. Ajansspor suggests that Jorginho’s artistry as a deep-lying playmaker has piqued Fenerbahce’s interest, positioning him as their prime target. But would Arsenal be willing to part ways?

Weighing the Options

Jorginho’s tenure in Arsenal has been a blink and you miss it affair, with a mere 16 appearances under his belt in the latter part of the previous season. Yet, with Thomas Partey nursing a hamstring, there’s a void to fill. Jorginho’s experience and technique could well be the answer to the midfield puzzle.

However, the plot thickens. His contract is in its twilight, gearing to expire by the end of this season. This presents Arsenal with a perplexing question – cash in on him now or risk losing him for a free transfer in the summer of 2024?

Playing Time and Future Aspirations

While his track record this season is unremarkable, with only two league appearances as a substitute, the prospect of more time on the pitch with Fenerbahce might tempt Jorginho.

Yet, Mikel Arteta’s strategy raises eyebrows. Despite Jorginho warming the benches during Arsenal’s face-off with Manchester United, Arteta hasn’t been shy in praising the 31-year-old.

Arteta was quoted saying, “Jorgi’s experience is very important, and then we have to use that and allow them to lead and self-police in certain moments.” He further added, “When it comes from the dressing room, that’s the most powerful thing. We haven’t gone from the end of May to the beginning of August from being young to now being mature.”


The future might seem uncertain for Jorginho, but one thing is for sure, his talent is undeniable. Whether he continues to play in the Premier League or chooses to embrace a new adventure in Turkey, the world will be watching closely.
