Release clause met, Partey on the plane to London – Fabrizio Romano

Arsenal will finally end one of the longest-running sagas in transfer window history as they have just reportedly agreed to pay the release clause of Thomas Partey.

The Ghanaian has been a target of the Gunners since Mikel Arteta became the club’s manager and they will finally get their man.

The Gunners had been told that they will have to pay his release clause if they want to sign him.

His release clause has been €50m all along and the Gunners have tried everything to sign him without paying that.

The Spaniards remained adamant that Arsenal will have to throw the money at them or forget about signing him.

With only a few hours remaining before the transfer window closes, Fabrizio Romano is reporting that the Ghanaian is on his way to London to join Arsenal after the Gunners triggered his release clause.

He is now racing against time to complete the paperwork and other formalities that will make him an Arsenal player.

The transfer window for English teams transacting with teams outside the country is 11 pm.

Arsenal has just a few hours to go, but they have already done the most important thing, which is paying his release clause and they will hope to unveil him as soon as they can.

  6. Sid says:

    Hope the official announcement is soon. Badly in need of a PARTEY right now?

    1. Eddie says:

      It’s the shithousery I love the most out of this deal.
      Atletico are angry, they had no idea.
      Arsenal didn’t inform them, Arsenal only called TP to tell him they were coming to activate it. Called LaLiga straight, I guess that’s why Tap In Merchant kept saying There would be no deal between Arsenal and Atletico.
      Atletico should even count themselves lucky Arsenal ain’t cancelling the LT deal for all the crap they did. Refusing to be flexible

      1. Nickerless Bender says:

        Surely AM can say “hang on… because of your shithousery we are pulling out of the LT deal and you can continue paying his wages even if you don’t register him?”

        I knew feck all about transfers but I’ve just realised the fella with the yellow tie isn’t on Sky sports anymore. Crikey Talk Sport must pay well 🤑

        1. Eddie says:

          Lol…. Arsenal hold the cards with LT.
          They could send him to Torino instead.
          Sky Sports themselves are not so far from being Tap in merchants too

          1. Nickerless Bender says:

            👍 👍

          2. Sue says:

            Jim White is up on SSN next… god help us 😂

          3. Nickerless Bender says:

            Lol. Yeah I just saw. But no yellow tie.

            This pandemic is causing chaos 😳

          4. Sue says:

            I’d have gagged him with it 😂😂

          5. Nickerless Bender says:


        2. SueP says:

          Isn’t Talksport Sky anyway these days?

          1. Nickerless Bender says:

            Probably right with the amount of poxy adverts.

            Gave up on talk sport years ago and now listening to the millions of arsenal podcasts that are out there. Quite surprised that JA hasn’t done one yet🤔

      2. Ackshay says:

        Finally showing some spine in transfer negociations. who knows we might even keep torreira because seriously we have to pay release claus, no negotiation nothing but they get loan with option to buy. screw them i say

    2. Lomomi says:

      Keep calm guys… Partey isn’t the Messiah. Why did we struggle against Sheffield? I think Arteta needs to tell his team to be a bit Quicker on the ball and decision. And BELLERIN can reduce the back passes, plus the aside-way passes are irritating. Why can’t we be direct and take the game to opponents, invade them till we force them to make errors and conceed early?
      And pleaser DONT START NKETIAH & OR WILLOCK in PL games, if we must take up the points 👍

  7. Dennis says:

    First part of the medical was done in Madrid, second part is currently underway in London and the deal will be finalized.

    Partey Time

  9. Ilesanmi says:

    Good to go. It make sense. Big relief to fans. Arteta & Partey this is your moment

  10. Uwua says:

    You are highly welcome.

  11. Okiror says:

    I want another addition to midfield

    1. Nickerless Bender says:

      Me too. Still think we are short in the creative midfield department.

      But from the rave reviews about TP and hearing that DC will perform in his preferred role and could possibly reveal his potential. I’m kinda happy. Will have a look at YouTube when this is confirmed.

      So it all could be good and we can push for that illusive top 4.

      1. Edward Jike says:

        Ceballos will do a great job with Partey

  12. Kev82 says:

    Arsenal have just triggered Thomas Partey release clause, confirmed by to La Liga. Here we go! Red circle

    Atlético have been informed by Liga – Thomas is in London right now to sign his contract until June 2025 and complete medicals. €50m will be paid immediatly by #AFC. Here we go! Glowing star

    Sweeeeeeeet COYG 🔴⚪

    1. Sue says:

      I guess we have Gunnersaurus to thank for this…..😣

      1. Kev82 says:

        Well I think Gunnersaurus and Arsenal have come to the end of the trail Sue we simply can’t afford to keep him about, but I’m sure he’ll be back when fans come back 😀🦕

    2. Abdul the black one says:

      Many Many Thanks to Arsenal Board, Edu, Arteta and Fabrizio Romano the reporter for bringing us box to box news on Our major target and making sure that our dream target has come to pass

      1. Kev82 says:


      2. Crowther says:

        It’s charles watts not fabrizio romano in the first place

  13. jojo franks says:

    Lets pray the plane is not delayed!!!

  14. Nickerless Bender says:

    OT. Jack Wilshire has just left West Ham.

    Oh how the mighty has fallen

    1. Okiror says:

      To where?

      1. Nickerless Bender says:

        Maybe us? 🥴

        1. Trudeau says:

          Depending on what Arteta thinks of him, us that such a bad shout on an incentive laden contract until the end of the year?

          I’m torn

    2. Adajim says:

      So sad.
      How injuries can frustrate some talent. The likes of Diaby, Douglas Costa, and so on. What a shame. One of the reason the likes of AUBA will always shine because they rarely get injured

      1. Sue says:

        Wilshere just tweeted saying he’s been fit for the last 8 months and training hard every day, but not getting a chance to play!
        If you’re not in the manager’s plans, what can you do?!
        Reckon he’ll be snapped up before we know it..

  15. Ezra says:

    nice one Gunners.

  16. Kapillary Alfred says:

    Am waiting 4 official anouncement to enjoy my party

  17. Wenger91 says:

    We need a playmaker

    1. Adajim says:

      with Partey we can play 3 in the middle, CEBALLOS could be push further up for more attacking role

    2. soccerboy says:

      #Wenger91 Give Ceballos a chance. He will thrive in that department. Playmaking. The guy is that good.

  18. Janatech says:

    Parte after Partey……….. Can we get one more MA

  19. Adajim says:

    Funny sokratis, Mustaphi, kola survive this window. Am surprised

    1. Okiror says:

      Sokrates will be released for free

    2. Ackshay says:

      kola wages killed the deal, 10m is a good deal

    3. SueP says:

      That’s because of crazy wages
      £15m in total pa

      1. ahmad73 says:

        Can’t be 15M. Thought he was on around 6M.

  20. Abul says:

    Let’s keep track of the flight. Luton will be the likely destination

  21. Tony says:

    Thomas Partey has FAILED his Medical.


    1. Sue says:

      Don’t even go there 😂😂😂

      1. Tony says:

        Just imagine if he did……. We would be in meltdown Sue!
        Haven’t been excited about a transfer like this since Sol Campbell joined us!

        1. Sue says:

          Doesn’t bear thinking about!! 😆
          Too right, this is massive!! Been waiting so long for it!! 🙂

    2. Nickerless Bender says:


    3. Mohsan says:

      Hahahaha…u have de lot a heart attack.

      1. Tony says:


  22. Crowther says:

    Partey after partey ,partey after partey after partey after partey.i have just been listening to the song,it was sung by big tril

  23. Mohsan says:

    So now with Partey what now with midfield. We have Xhaka, AMN and Elneny all not on the same level but same type of players so what formation are we going to see. Something to get excited about and point if discussion. I hope we don’t overload the midfiled with similar kind of players, the only forward/creative midfilede we have is Ceballos now. We should definitely be more positive and attacking at home so a triangle of Partey at the base with Ceballos and Saka on each side would be brilliant.

    1. Lenohappy says:

      Moshan I think the coach needs to be bold now in his formation and tactics, we will definitely see Willian in the midfield sometimes and Ceballos will play in the number 10role, I think it will be a midfield 3 of Ceballos Partey and xhaka.

    2. Sid says:

      Who knows we might even give Ozil a chance. I think a midfield of him, Elneny as Cdm and Partey as defensive B2B is going to be a good fit. Depending on the situations ofcourse.

  24. Wale says:

    Well, I won’t comment until its official, because I know Arsenal very well , I don’t want to have heart attack….. Lol

    1. Lenohappy says:

      Wale let me use the word of Kev and Eddie, this is a done deal.

      1. Ackshay says:

        Still it’s arsenal

  25. Dhoni says:

    Partey after partey after partey after partey my coutry man aside from Nketia who sucks……had to say but fact is arrivinf at the Emirates great news.

    1. Sid says:

      Give him this season bro. A return of around 15 goals all comps wouldn’t be bad. Or we can focus on Martinelli, John jules and Balogun.

      1. Edward Jike says:

        I want to see Balogun play upfront for Arsenal. He is very talented

  26. Dhoni says:

    Partey after partey after partey after partey my coutry man aside from Nketia who sucks……had to say but fact is arriving at the Emirates great news.

  27. Stewart Macintosh says:

    makes you wonder how much Gunnerasaurus was being paid…

  28. Reggie says:

    Welcome Thomas Partey, i hope you can control our midfield, at last.
