In a surprising turn of events, Arsenal midfielder Jorginho has revealed his role in helping the Gunners secure the signing of Kai Havertz from Chelsea in this summer transfer window. The 24-year-old German international has joined Arsenal for a staggering fee of £65 million, marking one of the biggest transfers of the season.
Jorginho, who himself made a move from Chelsea to Arsenal earlier this year, expressed his excitement about Havertz potentially joining the Gunners. In a video posted by Arsenal, Jorginho can be heard saying, “When I heard it was a possibility [for him to join Arsenal], I called him straight away! I was like, ‘You need to come!'”
The Brazilian-born Italian midfielder’s influence on Havertz’s decision to join Arsenal cannot be underestimated. Having played alongside each other at Chelsea, Jorginho and Havertz developed a strong bond both on and off the pitch. Their understanding and chemistry were evident during their time together at Stamford Bridge.
Jorginho’s phone call to Havertz highlights the camaraderie and support that exists among players within the footballing community. It is not uncommon for players to reach out to their friends and former teammates when they hear about potential transfers or moves. In this case, Jorginho’s endorsement played a crucial role in convincing Havertz to make the switch to North London.
Havertz’s arrival at Arsenal is undoubtedly a significant coup for the club. The attacking midfielder is widely regarded as one of Europe’s most promising talents and has already showcased his immense potential during his time at Chelsea. With his technical skills, vision, and goal-scoring ability, Havertz is expected to add firepower and creativity to Arsenal’s midfield.
The Gunners’ acquisition of Havertz also signals their ambition in building a competitive squad capable of challenging for major honors.
Furthermore, Havertz’s arrival at Arsenal reunites him with former Chelsea teammate Jorginho. The duo’s partnership in midfield could prove to be a formidable force for the Gunners. Their understanding of each other’s playing styles and tendencies will undoubtedly benefit Arsenal on the pitch.
As Arsenal fans eagerly await Havertz’s debut in their iconic red and white jersey, they can take solace in knowing that his signing was influenced by none other than Jorginho himself. The Brazilian midfielder’s phone call played a pivotal role in convincing Havertz to join the Gunners, showcasing the strong bonds and friendships that exist within the footballing world.
