According to Gazzetta dello Sport whilst the Italy international isn’t necessarily guaranteed a first-team place at the San Paolo, the Partenopei rebuffed the approach and have advised the North London club Jorginho is going nowhere.

Brazilian-born Italian international Jorginho is a product of the Hellas Verona youth system and joined Napoli in January 2014 for £8m.

Arsene Wenger is a long-term admirer of the midfielder and has been watching him since 2015.
