Good news for Arsenal as target rejects new contract offer 

Arsenal has been handed a major boost in their bid to land Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey this summer after he rejected a new contract offer from the Spaniards, according to Marca as cited by Sun Sport.

The Gunners have been pursuing a move for the Ghanaian for a very long time now and this summer should be when they get that deal done.

Marca claims that Atletico has now accepted that they will lose him and they have made Espanyol’s Marc Roca a target to replace him.

Mikel Arteta has already been backed impressively in this transfer window, however, the former Arsenal midfielder will hope that more players will be signed before the transfer window closes.

Partey has shone for the Spaniards over the past few seasons and in the last campaign, he was one of the best midfielders in the Champions League.

His performances over two legs as Deigo Simeone’s men beat Liverpool in the Champions League knockout stages brought him to the attention of even more fans and top teams.

Mikel Arteta has signed Willian, Gabriel Magalhaes and Dani Ceballos this summer, the latter joining on loan.

But the Gunners will be an even stronger team heading into the new season if they manage to land Partey.

    This Partey saga is driving me mental – As mental as the Auba saga?! I can’t decide….

    1. Ackshay says:

      Just skip them like i do, you lose nothing of importance since its only the same thing over and over again.

      1. Sue says:

        Maybe I should, Ackshay!!

      2. Sean M says:

        That would require self-control 😁

      3. Frank samwel says:

        Sure it is debilitation to be honest. Speaking about things which does not happen or look to happen is a headache!

    2. Uzi Ozil says:

      Maybe Partey will be a gunner…

      Sue, Aubamenyang not signing yet is the one driving be nuts..

      1. Uzi Ozil says:

        Driving me nuts *

      2. Grandad says:

        Perhaps we should target Roca who is younger, cheaper in terms of transfer fee and wages.He is also a very fine player who has potential for further development whereas Partey, who is 28 shortly, is probably at his peak.Food for thought?

        1. Sue says:

          I thought he was off to Atletico, Grandad…

        2. ACE says:


          Any of these three would be a
          welcomed alternative to TP.

      3. Sue says:

        I honestly thought we’d have heard something by now, Uzi… it never takes this long to announce, been over a month now! Why?? Why so long??

    3. Kenya 001 says:

      With all this anxiety I hope we are in with a double 🤓 and that will make me go mental👌

      1. Sue says:

        Haha good one, Kenya!! They’d better put us out of our misery soon!!

    4. Sid says:

      Auba is done. We have Aouar and Partey to choose however we still lack a natural CAM

      1. Sue says:

        I’m under that impression too, Sid, but why are they keeping us waiting?!! He’s our most important player!!

    5. GunneRay says:

      LOL, Sue..

      After the season we just had and all the stress they caused you. Now they do this to you too!

      Does the club even have a heart?! 😜 🤣

      1. Sue says:

        I’m not so sure they do, GunneRay… how inconsiderate of them 😆

      2. Frank samwel says:

        Hash hash make me lough coz that’s arsenal behaviour of putting fans in pressure

    6. Idilla richard says:

      Talking now And Again About Something That Might Not Happen Wont help atleast talk Of Any One Else!!!

  2. lukman says:

    the earlier the better is better to finish this biz

  3. jw1 says:

    Might think this event– Partey not agreeing new terms– is the trigger for a transfer to Arsenal.

    Nothing else to wait on.

    1. Frank samwel says:

      Hope we are going to have him

  4. nawas zico says:

    i will be very excited if we can get partey this and aouar this summer

  5. Maltese says:

    Aubameyang will sign if laca stay as I suggest

  6. Wale says:

    @ Sue, I believe that we will sign Party but I don’t know when and also like one more signing after him because just like what Eddie said in his old post that we have only spent 30m, which can not be our transfer budget for the whole season….. It took Chelsea some times too to sign Kai Havart, so with patience, we will get there….

    1. Sue says:

      I hope so, Wale… it’s the waiting that’s a killer!! As you say, patience is key…. you’re just going to have to keep reminding me of that 😂

  7. olaitan says:

    “……..Mikel Arteta has already been backed impressively in this transfer window..”.

    I hope am not the only one reading this, ” impressively ” with just £27m. Perhaps the statement should have been;

    ” Mikel Arteta has already been “impressively clever” in this transfer window,

    1. Emmanuel says:

      I read that too, seriously I was wondering how impressively he was backed……. Now I’m wondering again the word they will use for Chelsea 🤔😂🤣🤪
