Arsenal might finally get their long-term target following latest update

Elgoldigital via The Sun is reporting that Diego Simeone wants Lucas Torreira and the Uruguayan might be included in a deal for Thomas Partey.

Torreira looks set to end his time as an Arsenal player this summer and there are teams who want to sign him.

The Uruguayan has been linked with a move to the Italian top flight with Torino and Fiorentina both keen. However, Simeone has now indicated an interest in signing him and that might be good news for the Gunners.

Arsenal has been looking to land Thomas Partey all summer and the Ghanaian also seems keen to move to London.

The sticking point has been his 50 million euros release clause, but the report says that Atletico might be willing to add Partey in the mix if they move for Torreira.

It adds that the Spaniards are also looking to offload another Arsenal target, Thomas Lemar and former Chelsea striker, Diego Costa.

Arsenal has added Houssem Aouar to their midfielder targets in this transfer window and it remains unclear which of the players they will eventually sign.

Torino had been confident that they would land Torriera because he may have liked a reunion with his former manager, Marco Giampaolo.

But it might be too tough for him to turn down playing for Atletico especially as they play in the Champions League.

    If Morata to Juve & Suarez to Atletico could Torreira join as fellow Uruguayan then Partey to Arsenal

  2. GunneRay says:

    It all get very exciting when you see a image of Partey and the words “finally get their long-term target”!..

    ..And they you see, “The Sun” mentioned in the next sentence.. πŸ™

    1. Sue says:

      πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ exactly!!!

  3. Jon says:

    Lessons learned: Until an Arsenal target signs the dotted lines simply avoid all the unsubstantiated rumours for your mental health.

    Not worth it. For now, this is as good as it gets.

      πŸ‘ See my comment on parallel Thomas Partey post.

    I wish we get that Lyon guy instead of partey.
    I have a feeling partey may not suit epl plus there is a reason only arsenal are interested in him.

    1. Kstix says:

      Urhmm maybe it’s because he’s told everyone he’ll only come to Arsenal. Did you see him against Liverpool? Last I checked, Liverpool is an epl team.

      1. ozziegunner says:

        πŸ‘ Kstix, Mrcool, should realize that Partey and Aouar play different positions, box to box/DM and AM respectively. There is more chance of Aouar (not that I am saying he will) failing in the EPL, than Partey.

    2. carl says:

      at 45 million and 28 yrs old with no sell on price and his last contract as being 28 yrs old he will demand 200k plus !! that is why no one else is interested !! presonally id have Diawara 23 yrs old 27 million will want about 90k a week and is a far far better defensive midfielder than Partey !! we need a defensive midfielder more than an attacking one !! Xhaka and Ceballos are not the strong pairing we need to get in the top 4 or top 6

      1. Caixen says:

        Hey bros forget about economic don’t compared partey with injury prone and advisebly partey is far better than Diawara.

        1. ozziegunner says:

          πŸ‘ Caixen, Thomas Partey is in the Viera mould.
          Who gives a rat’s arse about sell on value, if Arsenal get four great years from him? What are Arsenal expecting in sell on value for Aubameyang, who the Club has signed on an upgraded contract, at the same age as Partey will be in four years time?

      2. farook says:

        Carl you are spot on mate I can’t agree with you more.

        1. ozziegunner says:

          farook, see my comment above.

      3. Sid says:

        Except that Diawara guy is injury prone. We dont want another Diaby do we?

    3. Jossy4Christ says:

      Am telling you, instead of party.

  5. Kev82 says:

    We need Partey and Aouar ASAP! Every morning I’m googling arsenal news… This isn’t good for your health πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    1. carl says:

      Partey will not be allowed to be part of a swap cash deal !! that has been made very clear by Aletico and i have heard we are changing tact and going for Diawara !! which i have said before time and time again is the far better option for the club and team !! one he is 23 yrs old which means we will have sell on price Two he wont want the earth in wages and around 90k a week should be fine and will cost only 27 million ,,, for me he is a far far better defensive midfielder than Partey who at 28 yrs old will demand a salary of 200 k plus as it will be his final contract.and he wont have the sell on price either and will cost 45 million. i said at the start of the partey rumours id rather Diawara and it should have been done now leaving us to just try get a deal for Aouar !! EDU was living in dreamland to think he could get this one over the line !! He doesnt want to pay the fee they are asking for for partey and Aletico are not prepared to lower it !! so it was never a starter !! and all EDU has done is waste time on a transfer that was never going to happen !! Go get a realistic and better player in Diawara !!

      1. Topboy says:

        Sorry mate Diawara is so average! don’t go by the youtube videos any Roma fan will tell u “have him for free ” and I’m one of them

        1. ozziegunner says:

          Marc Roca is far better value at less than €20 million, if you want one for the future.

    2. Sue says:

      Tell me about it, Kev 🀣🀣🀣

      1. Kev82 says:

        Aww you too Sue ? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I was hoping we’d have one of the two before the Liverpool game but that has now gone πŸ˜†

        1. Sue says:

          I was hoping to have had TP in time for Monday… remember when he was last there?! πŸ˜πŸ˜‰
          Have to be at the Emirates instead πŸ˜‰

          1. Kev82 says:

            Haha me too Sue I would feel confident we could get something from the game πŸ˜€ but with Ceballos-Xhaka and possibly Kolasinac it could go horribly wrong.. especially our woeful record at Anfield. Do you think we’ll get any of them Sue ? πŸ˜€

            1. Sue says:

              I reckon one of them, Kev… how about you?

              1. Kev82 says:

                If we get one I won’t be happy Sue we need 2, I understand it’s a covid world but we have to get 2 in at least! Our midfield is bang average playing above itself but they will be found out later in the season maybe even Monday night! Edu knows it, Arteta knows it so I think we’ll get 2 in Sue πŸ˜€

                1. patH says:

                  With the fact that there will be no return of fans to the stadiums in the foreseeable future means no matchday revenue.The obvious result of this, at least to me, is that we will not get Party, as it seems that Aletico will not budge on the price and his rumoured wage demand. I also doubt we will get Aouar although its not impossible if we sell, As they say time waits for no man.

                  1. Kev82 says:

                    Yeah I think Sokratis, Torreira, Kolasinac and Mustafi will be gone and possibly Balogun as I hear Sheffield United are in talks with the club still… And Arteta said himself some members of the squad may have to be sacrificed to get our targets so even if we fail to land those 2, I’m sure we have alternatives.. well I hope.

                  2. Sue says:

                    Kev.. Arsenal have joined Ibrahim Sangaré’s list of suitors. He’s seen as a backup option if they’re priced out of a move for their main targets.

                  3. Kev82 says:

  6. Uwot? says:

    Errrrr it appears not.Apparently AM are playing silly buggers.They want Torreirra but are not preparedness to discuss Partey.Basically want their cake AND eat it.Quite frankly they’re taking the p***.At this point AFC should walk away & return with the get out clause a few hours before deadline.Pay the amount & leave them floundering around without a replacements.

    1. ozziegunner says:

      Uwot, AM are not playing “silly buggers”; please see my post on the parallel Partey article re the Covid19 furlough.

  7. Stephen says:

    Both partey and Aouar are important for arsenal

  8. carl says:

    Partey will not be allowed to be part of a swap cash deal !! that has been made very clear by Aletico and i have heard we are changing tact and going for Diawara !! which i have said before time and time again is the far better option for the club and team !! one he is 23 yrs old which means we will have sell on price Two he wont want the earth in wages and around 90k a week should be fine and will cost only 27 million ,,, for me he is a far far better defensive midfielder than Partey who at 28 yrs old will demand a salary of 200 k plus as it will be his final contract.and he wont have the sell on price either and will cost 45 million. i said at the start of the partey rumours id rather Diawara and it should have been done now leaving us to just try get a deal for Aouar !!

    1. ozziegunner says:

      Marc Roca is better value and a better all round player. Diawara is injury prone for AC Roma, which doesn’t auger well for the EPL.

  9. Abdulhakim Abdulkahi Marafa says:

    Is there any possibility of getting both Houssem Aouar and Thomas Party ?because I love them all and Arsenal needed them, pls bring them all.

  10. Herbz says:

    This is when every fan should appreciate Arsene Wenger as a Great Coach.

    He usually talked about having”technical” players in midfield,,,, and that’s what’s disturbing Arsenal right now. And that’s what all these Peps, Klopps, Chelseas are thriving on.

    I hope PARTEY is that technical player needed, because I believe BOUBACARY SOUMARE (Lille) is more physical and technical than him.

    1. Akin says:

      it will be like Lille setup their team just for Arsenal. We’ve already bought to of their stars.

    2. KickAssFan says:

      Nee quiet you!!! WTF? Yeah, Wenger used to be good, then he started thinking he is God.

    3. ozziegunner says:

      Herbz, Arsenal under Wenger declined when he went away from the strong physical midfield of Petit, Viera and Gilberto Silva and tried to build a midfield around Cesc Fabrigas. Due to Fabrigas being supported by other small technical midfielders, the balance was wrong and Arsenal was often bullied and overrun in midfield.
      There is an excellent YouTube video on this matter in discussions between Thierry Henry, Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher.

  11. Tony Lane says:

    Soumare should be the main DM target. The Roma guy does not compare. Soumare is also for sale right now.

    Forget Partey.

  12. Emmanuel says:

    I have given up hope on arsenal signing either partey or Aouar, will they be made dying mins of the transfer window??? If arteta and edu manage to pull this one big ups to them, as for me I’m fed up already….

  13. Atom Atomicity says:

    Chelsea started their negotiations on sunday during their defeated to Liverpool with Mendy GK and the will sign him within this week rather than Arsenal who is gambling for 6 months between Houssem Aouar and Thomas partey but sign none.

  14. Kev82 says:

    Yeah Sue I can’t pretend I know too much about Sangare other than he plays for the ivory coast but has only made 5 appearances but anything is better than nothing isn’t it ?

    1. Sue says:

      It sure is, Kev!
      Brentford just knocked out West Brom πŸ‘ And normal service is resumed – United had a penalty 🀣

      1. Kev82 says:

        Haha yeah Raya on form ? πŸ˜€ Sue united stinking the place out again πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ and I have a soft spot for Luton I have family in Luton so come on you hatters πŸ‘Š

        1. Kev82 says:

          Game over bloody Rashford 😩

          1. Sue says:

            Score for tomorrow, Kev?

            1. Kev82 says:

              Hard to predict Sue as we’re not sure what teams will turn out but I’ll go for a 2-2 πŸ˜‚ tbh I’d rather we left the competition early as we know it’s just a Mickey mouse cup and man city is the only team that take it seriously anyway.. they’ll win it lol

              1. ozziegunner says:

                There is no such thing as a “Mickey Mouse” cup, if you win it.

  15. Flyingwhales says:

    Hope Liverpool expose our ass and open Edu’s purse so that he can get us good DM. Some average players can do Arsenal no good again. We need quality addition…… Get us partey or ndidi. I have strong believe that arsenal will eventually ship out 5 to 7 players on deadline day and bring in 2 more players.

  16. RODGERS OOKO says:

    Let Arteta not be disturbed with party we have enough mid Ceballos and xhaka are finall plus element and Gueondozi we are just ok

      RO, you’re missing your calling as a comedian! 😊 😁
