Agent: No Gunners approach for Jorginho

Jorginho, Napoli

Jorginho's agent insists the Napoli midfielder has not made contact with Arsenal about a potential move to the Premier League ahead of the new season.

The North London giants have moved early in the transfer window for once, wrapping up deals for defender Sead Kolasinac and striker Alexandre Lacazette in the first week.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is also believed to be in the market for a midfielder as Santi Cazorla's injury woes continue at the Emirates Stadium, with Jorginho reportedly on the Frenchman's list.

But Joao Santos says his client has not been approached by the FA Cup champions and that the 25-year-old remains committed to the Azzurri's cause as he enters the final 12 months of his contract.

When asked about the reported interest from the English capital, Santos told Radio CRC: "Arsenal? No one has contacted me.

"Jorginho is fine in Naples, it is obvious that some managers have taken an interest in him, but my client has only Napoli in the sights for this year, and his goal is to do better than last year."

Santos did not rule out the Italy international leaving Naples, admitting that club president Aurelio De Laurentiis could be enticed into selling for a hefty sum.

"The more time passes, the more difficult it is for the player to move. There is no release clause in his contract," the agent added.

"If there comes a club with so much money and De Laurentiis is interested in the figure offered, [he] will sell him."
