Jorginho, of Arsenal FC, believes Kevin de Bruyne is the best midfielder in the Premier League right now.
Chelsea Online News:
He said in a Question & Answer session on the ‘The Residency’ app that the Belgian, who was sold by Chelsea FC over a decade ago, is the most skilled player in his position right now.
Jorginho is another player in the position who has just departed Stamford Bridge, moving directly to Arsenal FC.
The Italy international was largely expected not to sign a new contract with the club that he won the Champions League with in 2021.
Chelsea FC will have been pleased with the money they received for the midfielder, as they turned their attention to the club-record acquisition of Enzo Fernandez on deadline day.

One player they would have loved to have had at their disposal during their miserable season thus far this year is Kevin de Bruyne, who comfortably leads the league in assists this year.
According to Jorginho, Kevin de Bruyne is the best midfielder in the Premier League. Erling Haaland’s brilliance up front undoubtedly helped those figures, but the fact that he has won the prize multiple times suggests that he also has the capacity to work with anyone around him.
The fact that he was already a member of the Blues squad, despite his failure to break through as a regular first team player, should upset Chelsea fans.
At the time, Mohamed Salah and Romelu Lukaku also experienced a similar destiny, but they all went on to achieve greater success.
Jorginho has now added to the frequently admirations he receives by proclaiming that Kevin de Bruyne the best midfielder in the Premier League.
