Contrasting reports surrounding Thomas Partey’s Arsenal future

Depending on your favoured sources, you could be led to believe that Thomas Partey is in line for an exit from Arsenal, but Fabrizio Romano’s latest update disagrees.

The midfielder joined from Atletico Madrid back in 2020 after the Gunners triggered his release clause, and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular in our side. The Ghanaian’s continued run in the side has been regularly stunted by injuries however, and following the signing of Declan Rice, he may no longer appear to be a guaranteed name in the starting line-up.

The Mirror yesterday claimed that Mikel Arteta had ‘given the green light’ to Partey’s departure, with Galatasaray said to be holding talks over a move.

Fabrizio claims that Arsenal appear to have priced themselves out of any potential deal this summer however, and claims that nothing appears all that close in regards to his potential exit, adding that he expects him to stay put.

At this point in the window, it would be a surprise if we was to allow Partey to leave the club, especially without a replacement being lined up to take his place in the squad. Thomas did start last week’s victory over Nottingham Forest, and will likely have a role to play in tomorrow’s encounter also.

Partey may have some off the field issues to deal with at present, but running away doesn’t necessarily fix that, and I still believe he can play a vital role for oue club this term.

Do you think we should be considering replacing him this summer?

  1. Why believe the nonsense from some media rag with little or no knowledge?

    Arteta has already spoken about Partey, playing him and Rice together, and his plans for Partey this year.

    Arteta usually gives a noncommittal response like “market is open we’ll see,” or “we brought in….” however he gave a concrete response regarding Partey.

    Perhaps next Summer Partey is moved on and we look for another midfielder.

  2. Would be very surprised if TP were to leave in this transfer window. But would not be surprised if he were sold in Jan or next summer.

  3. Maybe if a sizeable offer came for Partey earlier in the window, Arsenal could consider selling him and acquiring a younger replacement.
    But at this stage of the window, it would be pure madness to even contemplate an exit for Partey, whatever the offer.

  4. Thomas Partey was always rumored to be leaving from his very first campaign, though the rumors this summer did appears have legs born out of none football reasons.

  5. If Arteta offloads Partey now, we will all live to regret it, and we must forget about making the top 4 this season. Rice’s social integration does not mean he has gelled with the team. No one knows how long he’s going to take to actually be a key component in the Arsenal machinery.
    Infatuation is often disastrous every time it’s mistaken for substance.

  6. I believe that, at this moment, Arteta might just be stupid enough to let Partey go, and possibly Gabriel too.

    He seems to be bewitched by Havertz, which leads me to the above speculation!

    Havertz got the lowest rating of any Arsenal player in the Palace game!!!!!

    If there is one player he should let go, I think I have made my vote clear.
