Arsenal Potentially Facing Midfielder Loss After Aston Villa Disappointment

In the wake of a deeply disappointing defeat against Aston Villa, reports are suggesting that Arsenal might be on the brink of losing a crucial component of their midfield. This news broke following Arsenal’s loss over the weekend, potentially costing them a shot at the title. But the impact might be even more significant if it leads to the departure of a top-performing midfielder.

The Aston Villa Upset

The Gunners had a golden opportunity to go top of the league when they hosted Aston Villa, especially following Liverpool’s slip-up against Crystal Palace at Anfield. However, the pressure of the occasion proved too much for Arsenal, resulting in a 2-0 defeat. This turn of events left Manchester City at the top of the league, in control of winning their fourth consecutive title.

The Potential Fallout

Following the disappointing loss, things could spiral downwards for Mikel Arteta. He now has the unenviable task of maintaining cohesion within a team that has shown exceptional performance in English football since the start of the year.

Midfielder Exit Looms

There are rumors that Jorginho, the Brazilian-born Italy international, might be leaving the Emirates Stadium for Juventus this summer. The news, initially reported by Spanish outlet Fichajes, has caused some unrest among Arsenal fans.

An essential part of Arteta’s squad this season, Jorginho played in many big games alongside Declan Rice. However, he was absent from the start of the latest match, with a Champions League quarter-final second leg against Bayern Munich set for later in the week.

The Impact of Losing Jorginho

At 32, Jorginho might not have the physicality to play twice a week. Despite this, losing him as a free transfer following his performance in the Euro 2020 would be a severe setback for Arteta and his team. Jorginho’s leadership on the field has been instrumental in many of Arsenal’s performances this season.

In FourFourTwo’s perspective, it would be sensible to keep Jorginho for another season, given Thomas Partey’s ongoing decline. However, it remains uncertain if Arsenal can secure a new contract for him, with no clear indication from either side.

According to Transfermarkt, Jorginho is worth €15 million, making him a significant asset to Arsenal.

The Future of Arsenal

Further reports hint at further changes within Arsenal. There are rumors of another potential star exit, with Gabriel Jesus speculated to depart. On the other hand, they could be landing a controversial striker, and Joshua Kimmich has been linked to the team.

All these rumors have left Arsenal fans anxious about the future of the club. However, the next few days or weeks could see the rumors either confirmed or debunked.
