Jorginho joins Premier League leader Arsenal from Chelsea


LONDON (AP) — Italy international Jorginho has joined Arsenal from Chelsea for a reported 12 million pounds ($14.75 million). It is a deadline-day move that gives the Premier League leaders an extra option in midfield in their bid to win a first top-flight title since 2004. Arsenal made a late move in the transfer window to strengthen its central-midfield department. Mohamed Elneny is a backup to first-choice holding midfielder Thomas Partey and has been ruled out for a lengthy period because of injury. Jorginho helped Italy win the European Championship in 2021. He spent 4 1/2 years at Chelsea after joining from Napoli. He was no longer a regular player at Chelsea under manager Graham Potter.
