ARSENAL have not made an approach for Napoli midfielder Jorginho, according to his agent Joao Santos.

Arsenal have been busy in the transfer market, snapping up Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer from Schalke and Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon.

The Gunners are expected to also bolster their squad in midfield, with a number of players linked to the north London club.

CSKA Moscow star Aleksandr Golovin is said to be on the verge of a move to the Emirates and Napoli man Jorginho has also been mentioned.

However, the Italy international’s agent has claimed there has been no approach from the Gunners for his client.

Arsenal? No one has contacted me,” Santos told Italian Radio station CRC.

“Jorginho is fine in Naples, it is obvious that some managers have taken an interest in him.

“But my client has only Napoli in the sights for this year and his goal is to do better than last year.”

Any move for Jorginho is not likely to be straightforward as the 25-year-old does not have a release clause in his contract.

And the midfielder’s agent acknowledged this, claiming any approach from Arsenal or another club would need to be swift.

“The more time passes, the more difficult it is for the player to move,” Santos added.

“There is no release clause in his contract.

“If there comes a club with so much money and Aurelio De Laurentiis [Napoli president] is interested in the figure offered, he will sell him.
