Arsenal’s pursuit of their star is a source of concern for Spanish side

Marca claims that Atletico Madrid is worried about Arsenal’s ongoing interest in Thomas Partey.

The Ghanaian midfielder is one of Arsenal’s top summer transfer targets as they rebuild their team under Mikel Arteta.

The report further claims that Partey has emerged as a target for other top European sides like Juventus and PSG, but Arsenal is the team that has maintained an unwavering interest in signing him.

Marca further claims that the Spaniards have now become worried that they can actually lose him to the Gunners this summer.

This is because his release clause of around 50 million euros no longer looks big in light of clubs signing players for huge money.

The Spaniards are now looking to get him on a new deal and to increase his salary and his release clause according to the same report.

Arteta has signed Willian and he will complete the signing of Gabriel from Lille soon.

When the Brazilian defender joins, it will remain the midfield that will need to be strengthened and Arsenal might return with a serious offer for Partey.

They will have to replace Dani Ceballos who was on loan at the Emirates last season even if they have no plans to land another midfielder because the Spaniard played an important role in their success in the last campaign.

    I’ve read in a few places that Arsenal have an agreement with Partey, and that all that remains is to pay his clause after signing other targets.
    Now I don’t know how true that one is

      Sell Laca, Guendouzi, Torreira and Leno and then pay his release clause? And also buy Ceballos or Aouar? Actually I’m hoping for Laca plus some cash in exchange for Partey.

      Partey’s father has said that if Atletico doesn’t appreciate him (Simeone took a long time to make him a regular) he should go elsewhere. Being Ghanaian, he speaks English well. And the Premier League is very popular in Ghana.

      Better be true! 🤞🏾

    Straight forward situation; personal terms with Thomas Partey agreed, Arsenal meets the the €50 million buy out clause and the player comes to the Emirates.
    It’s all about the money.
