Who's laughing now?! 'Agent Jorginho' showing exactly why Arsenal signed him
It wasn’t long ago that an injury to Thomas Partey would have struck fear into the hearts of Arsenal fans across the globe. And so perhaps the biggest compliment you can pay to Jorginho right now is that Partey’s latest muscle problem has not been met with the usual level of fear and trepidation.
The fact that there is even a debate as to whether Partey should return to Mikel Arteta's starting line up against Everton on Wednesday tells you all you need to know about Jorginho’s impact at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal’s January signing from Chelsea was dubbed ‘Agent Jorginho’ by joyous Blues fans when his Gunners debut at Goodison Park earlier this month coincided with the Gunners sinking to their first Premier League defeat in five months.
But those Chelsea fans aren’t laughing anymore.
The Italy international has proven to be an incredibly smart piece of business by Arsenal, one that has undoubtedly made them stronger as they go hunting a first Premier League title since 2004.
