The negotiations for midfielder Jorginho between Arsenal and Lazio began with an initial contact and expression of interest. According to reports, Jorginho, who had recently moved from Chelsea to Arsenal, was missing Italy and was in talks with Serie A clubs, including Lazio. However, Jorginho’s agent, Joao Santos, confirmed that there were no negotiations with Lazio and that the midfielder was very happy with Arsenal. Despite the speculation, Jorginho expressed his commitment to Arsenal and his desire to stay in North London.
The discussion between Arsenal and Lazio would have involved the transfer fee and contract terms. Reports suggested that Arsenal may agree to sell Jorginho to Lazio for a fee similar to the one they invested to purchase him six months ago. However, the availability of funds for Lazio to pay the player was uncertain. It is common for negotiations to involve back-and-forth discussions regarding the financial aspects and contractual details of a transfer deal. The clubs would have engaged in these discussions to reach a mutually beneficial agreement.
The finalization of the deal between Arsenal and Lazio would have included the player undergoing a medical examination. Once the final details were sorted between the clubs, the player’s medical would be scheduled. This step is crucial to ensure that the player is in good physical condition and able to meet the requirements of the new club. The completion of the deal would mark the official transfer of Jorginho from Arsenal to Lazio.
