Arsenal and Spanish side discussed three players in this transfer window

Fabrizio Romano claims that Arsenal held talks with Atletico Madrid over the transfer of Thomas Partey and the teams discussed Matteo Guedouzi and Alexandre Lacazette as well.

Arsenal has been long-term admirers of Partey and he remains one of their top transfer targets.

They have been rebuilding their team this summer, but they haven’t exactly strengthened their midfield.

Partey is one of the best box-to-box midfielders in the world and Express Sports claims that he has always been a supporter of the Gunners and he wants to move to the north London side.

When Arsenal approached the Spaniards, they made it clear to them that the Ghanaian will only leave if the Gunners pay his 50 million euros release clause.

Arsenal attempted to include Guendouzi and Lacazette in the mix, but the Spaniards were still not interested and wanted just cash, according to Romano.

Romano then claimed that might change for Lacazette if the Spaniards sell Diego Costa.

“For sure they spoke with Atletico Madrid,” Romano told Lee Gunner on his YouTube channel.

“It was during the meeting they had for Thomas, the first time it was in July.

“They spoke about Matteo Guendouzi and they spoke also about Lacazette.

“But at the moment, Atletico Madrid was not going for Lacazette.

“We will have to wait a bit to see about this situation because it will also depend on what will happen to other clubs if Atletico Madrid will sell for example Diego Costa and what will happen with Luis Suarez.”

  1. Why must Arteta sell laca..I will pick him over nketiah and any 9 arsenal got..if Arteta does not like some players he should not sell them because he doesn’t like the players.He and edu should develop a good player me why sell a powerful player to keep a yet to be proven you here.i know laca has a part to play.look at auba n him n pepe,they share something special.the presence of laca gives any defence that fear factor.let Arteta not be carried away of his past success.He needs depth.How sure do u guys thing partey will impact our team.Lets not be carried away.its a very long season.Bench and fit players win games not just a starting eleven players.Arteta n edu stop being penny piniching.Spend the money.Take risks.keep can sell kolosinac ozil mustafi holding chambers torriera geudonzi..And find good utility replacement..arsenal fans should realize other teams are strengthen on what they had last year not throwing away all the players..Arteta and Edu should be wiser

    1. It’s very easy to say we should sell but of the players you mentioned i don’t see a queue knocking the door to buy any of them for their market value they want them on a cheap budget, yet when we want to buy replacements we have to pay top money.

    2. How many quality players do Liverpool have on the bench, brother starting 11 and coach tactics win match not just bench and please stop talking about Lacazette like he’s a player we will miss. He scored less than 15 goals last season.

      1. Lenohapy, if you look at Liverpool last season, they had a great run with lack of injuries to their squad. That is why their squad depth was not tested. Liverpool players played a lot of games and there is minimal turn around between seasons to overcome niggling injuries. It will be interesting to see if their luck holds in 1920/21.

  2. I would keep Laca. Only sell if we can get at least £30 million.
    I have always rates Laca since he moves to Arsenal and always thought his overall game and talent was better than Auba. But Auba does the one think he was bought for, and that is to score goals (crucial goals).

  3. Let’s also forget a certain guriod..yes dat guy.He might be average but he was bought by chelsea to do damage to us later on..If we can sell them out.Its because they see arsenal as a penny pinching club that’s why the price our players cheap.The owns should man up and stop hiding behind the scene.when u spend on players you want at the right time without behaving as if we are one championship club,no club will walk into arsenal to buy our average players on the cheap..Let’s stop the mentality that arsenal is a broke club or we have a trading of buying the partey money or auora.who knows these average players will see this things and step up their game and those club that thinks our club is desperate for money will take our players seriously full stop.
