Mohammed Elneny’s injury has left a hole in Mikel Arteta’s team and will need a replacement for the Egyptian.
The Gunners took interest in the Italian after an unfruitful pursuit to sign Moises Caicedo from Brighton, sending two bids and the third attempt looking doubtful as the window closes on Tuesday.
If the deal succeeds, Jorginho who has won Champions League, Super Cup and FIFA World Club Cup with Chelsea will join Ashely Cole, David Luiz, Petr Cech, William Gallas and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang that have played for both clubs.
