Father of Arsenal target sends the Gunners an important transfer message

Arsenal is one of the teams looking to sign Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid this summer as Mikel Arteta looks to bolster his options.

The Ghanaian midfielder has become one of the best in his position and his performance for his Spanish side this season has attracted the attention of several top sides.

He is being targeted by teams like Juventus and PSG (Football Ghana) and Atletico also wants to keep him (The Guardian) with them beyond his current deal.

He has a release clause that could be paid to free him from his contract with the Spanish side and if Arsenal is serious about landing him, his father has warned the Gunners that they are not alone in the pursuit of his signature.

Jacob Partey claimed that his son has a release clause that could be paid to sign him and that Arsenal isn’t the only team looking to sign the midfielder, before revealing that he would support whatever decision his son makes about his future.

‘My son’s current club Atletico Madrid has a release clause in Partey’s deal… this means that any club which shows interest in signing him must meet those demands,’ Jacob Partey told SilverFM via Mail Sport.

‘So any team which meets Atletico’s demand will be able to sign my son, and not specifically Arsenal.

‘I always call my son and he is of age to decide on a move. I am ready to support his decision.’

  1. We are too slow in getting things done. Slow in sacking Emery, slow in bringing in his replacement..Slow in getting Kante, Hazard, Gary Cahill, CR, Mata. We take a step forwaed and two steps backward. Get this deal done Arsenal. If it will cost 50m, let us get it done. We should be ambitious for once. Arteta needs quality players to succeed. Thomas Partey is a must. Close this deal. No alternative to that DM role. Send Guendouzi and Willock out on loan.

    1. I doubt it as Xhaka happens to be Mikel’s favorite and next I would not be surprised Arsenal starts working on a contract extension for another of his favorites Ozil. Hope Mikel has woken up and smelt the coffee after the Brentford loss that he needs players to go to balance the costs of players the club actually need.
