- Chelsea midfielder joins on 18-month contract
- Brighton determined to hold on to Moisés Caicedo
Arsenal have signed the Chelsea midfielder Jorginho for £12m after accepting they could not convince Brighton to sell Moisés Caicedo.
The Premier League leaders have been trying to add depth in midfield after losing Mohamed Elneny to a knee injury and moved for Jorginho after failing with two bids for Caicedo. Negotiations with Chelsea progressed quickly and the Italy international, whose contract was due to expire at the end of the season, was confirmed as an Arsenal player just under three hours before deadline. The fee is a guaranteed £10m with the rest in add-ons.
