Arsenal want Sevilla box-to-box midfielder, will come back in the summer…

Having landed Martin Odegaard, Arsenal are unlikely to do any major business in the coming days, besides perhaps signing a back-up left back to cover for Kieran Tierney. However, reports suggest that Arsenal were in the hunt for a box-to-box midfielder earlier on, and may revisit that effort in the summer.

According to Calcio Mercato, Arsenal were one of many clubs looking at Sevilla’s Joan Jordan. Inter, AC Milan, Napoli, and Roma were the other clubs eyeing the player.

Apparently, Sevilla’s €30 million led Arsenal to give up on their pursuit, which would make sense as the Gunners’ priority in January was to sign a creative midfielder anyway. Joan Jordan is a very different kind of player to Martin Odegaard, so a summer move will likely have little to do with whether or not Odegaard stays on past his current loan deal.

“He has great pace and quality in carrying the ball, among the best stats in his position, and is good at set pieces. Features that have brought him in the crosshairs of Luis Enrique ‘s national team and beyond.”

Translated from Calcio Mercato (

Jordan has 2 years left on his Sevilla contract but there is some uncertainty over whether or not he will renew with them.
