ARSENAL midfielder Jorginho’s future remains uncertain after his agent confirmed contract talks are at a “standstill”.

The Gunners signed the Italy international, 31, on Deadline Day back in January for £12million from London rivals Chelsea.

He penned an 18-month deal with the club and has gone on to make 30 appearances for Mikel Arteta‘s side.

However, the short contract means he is already set to become a free agent at the end of the season.

And agent Joao Santos has now revealed there has been no progress when it comes to extending his stay, although Jorginho is keen to do so.

Speaking to TUTTOmercatoWEB, he said: “Everything is at a standstill.

“We’ll think about it after February. However, the priority remains Arsenal.”

Jorginho has started just four of Arsenal’s 12 Premier League games so far this season.

He was brought in as cover for Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey, but has found himself somewhat out in the cold since the arrival of Declan Rice.

Jorginho also came under fire after the North London derby in September.

He gave the ball away for Tottenham’s second-half equaliser in their 2-2 draw at the Emirates.

After the game, Arteta said: “They’re allowed to make errors because they play and we don’t play.

“For us, it’s really easy, but if there is someone who is willing to help the team and do the most of it, it’s Jorgi. We are all with him.”
