Jorginho hinted at a potential return to Italy next year as he acknowledged his contract with Arsenal concluding in the summer of 2024. The 31-year-old midfielder, who joined Arsenal from Chelsea in January, is contemplating a move back to Serie A as his current contract enters its final stretch. Despite the option to prolong his tenure at Arsenal, uncertainties loom over his future at the club.
Acknowledging his situation while representing Italy, Jorginho expressed his ambiguity about the timing of a return, stating, “I’m torn; I aspire to return, yet the right moment remains unclear. There are tasks I still wish to accomplish at Arsenal.” Reflecting on his growth and contribution to the team, he noted the initial adaptation period after transitioning clubs and coaches but emphasized the positive experience and personal development during his time at Arsenal.
Despite this contemplation, Jorginho expressed contentment with his current situation in North London, expressing gratitude for the guidance provided by Mikel Arteta. Emphasizing his growth in understanding the game and the competitive aspect, he also highlighted his endeavor to impart this experience to his teammates.
Having become an integral part of Arteta’s squad, Jorginho’s exceptional form in the absence of Thomas Partey due to injury has showcased his prowess on the field. The midfielder will continue his international duties with Italy in Euro 2024 qualifiers against North Macedonia and Ukraine, with Italy having secured at least a play-off spot and eyeing direct qualification by achieving positive results in the upcoming matches.
