Arsenal have agreed a £12m deal with Chelsea to sign Italy midfielder Jorginho.

The 31-year-old, who joined Chelsea from Napoli in 2018, is into the final six months of his contract at Stamford Bridge.

He will now have a medical before signing an 18-month contract with the option of a further year.

Jorginho is set to become Arsenal's third signing of the January window, the club having previously bought Poland defender Jakub Kiwior from Spezia for 20m euros (£17.6m) and Belgium striker Leandro Trossard, who moved from Brighton for £21m.

Jorginho has scored 29 goals in 213 appearances for Chelsea, winning the Champions League, Europa League, Uefa Super Cup and Fifa Club World Cup during his time at at the club.

He was capped 46 times and he was part of the Italy side that beat England to win Euro 2020 at Wembley in July 2021.
