Jorginho sends Arsenal fans into meltdown with Kai Havertz selfie on Instagram

Jorginho sends Arsenal fans into meltdown with Kai Havertz selfie on Instagram

Jorginho has excited Arsenal fans and riled up Chelsea supporters with a picture of him and Kai Havertz.

Arsenal midfielder Jorginho has sent Arsenal fans into meltdown and riled up Chelsea supporters with a picture of he and Kai Havertz.

The Gunners are pushing hard to sign the Germany international from their London rivals and recent reports claim Havertz could be an Arsenal player next week after a second bid was tabled.

The former Bayer Leverkusen man is believed to have given the green light to the move across the capital and appears as though an official announcement is imminent - especially after Mikel Arteta talked up the 24-year-old.

And Jorginho, who only left Chelsea for Arsenal in January, is doing his best to tease everyone. The pair have been at Kepa Arrizabalaga's wedding and the Italy international posted a cheeky selfie of them in their suits.

The ex Napoli midfielder tagged his former and potentially future teammate and added a slew of eye emojis, as well as a laughing emoji.

Jorginho loves being a bit of a troll online but his post got Arsenal fans seriously excited and angered Chelsea supporters at the same time.

One wrote: "I love this game."

A second wrote: "Imagine back in December we'd have Jorginho teasing transfers to Arsenal fans and that transfer was Kai Havertz."

A third Gunner said: "Jorgi is such a likeable guy ffs."

A fourth said: "Jorginho has announced Kai Havertz before Arsenal."

But a Chelsea fan fumed: "The hate I feel towards him increases as the day goes by."

Another wrote: 'It’s just a picture'. It’s a complete lack of respect."

Havertz is set to come in as a replacement for Granit Xhaka, with Arteta reportedly believing he can play in five different positions in his side.

Speaking to Spanish outlet Marca, Arteta praised Havertz and said: "Talent comes at a price, and at Arsenal we are always interested in youngsters with experience.

"I repeat, I'm not talking about players from other clubs, but in the case of Kai he has already shown a lot, including in the Champions League. He is a talented player, versatile and only 24 years old."

After signing in a £71 million deal in 2020, Havertz has gone on to score 32 goals in 139 games for Chelsea - including the goal that brought them a second Champions League trophy in 2021.
