Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has revealed that he was "open to negotiations" with Arsenal amid rumoured interest from the Gunners during the summer transfer window.
Mikel Arteta's side ultimately activated Thomas Partey's release clause to sign the Ghana international from Atletico Madrid, but Jorginho has said that he would have been willing to hold discussions with the capital club.
"I believe that every player is open to negotiations," Jorginho told ESPN Brazil.
"So I believe there was something they talked about. And in the end it was decided that I remain here. Now my head is here and we're going to do a great job with Chelsea, which I always wanted to do."
