Would Arsenal fans be happy to sacrifice Partey to secure Caicedo?

Arsenal open for a shock sale of £50 million man by Yash

It would appear that Arsenal are open to selling Thomas Partey if are able to land their long-term target Moises Caicedo, who could come at a price tag of £80 million.

Mikel Arteta is keen to revamp Arsenal’s midfield this summer, and the Gunners seem to be closing in on their primary target, Declan Rice.

To fund their transfer activities and balance the books, Arsenal is expected to conduct a fire-sale, with Granit Xhaka poised to make a £15 million move to Bayer Leverkusen once Rice joins the Emirates. However, Xhaka may not be the only key player departing the club this summer.

The report suggests that Thomas Partey is also potentially on the chopping block, with two Serie A clubs closely monitoring his situation. If Arsenal manage to secure a deal for Caicedo, the Ghanaian midfielder could be allowed to leave.

The Gunners’ pursuit of Caicedo underlines their determination to reinforce the midfield, and the potential arrival of the young Ecuadorian talent could pave the way for significant changes in the squad. Arteta is keen to reshape the team and add more dynamism and depth to the midfield department.

As the transfer window progresses, it remains to be seen if Arsenal can secure the signing of Caicedo and how it will impact the future of players like Partey.

The club will be looking to strike the right balance between raising funds and making strategic additions to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season.

  1. EPL fixtures is out our first match is at home
    Arsenal Vs Nottingham forest
    Next are Crystal palace, Fulham,Man United, Everton , Tottenham Hotspur, Bournemouth,Man city, Chelsea it will be a thought start to the season for Arsenal

  2. I dont think Arteta and Edu will sell Partey even if we get Caicedo and I wouldnt want Partey to go. The reasons are simple. Partey is a world class player and we will need as many world class players in the squad as possible considering the fixture schedule, the quality of the opponents, injuries, rest and rotation. Secondly with Xhaka already almost certainly leaving, we cant have 2 senior players in the midfield leaving at the same time. So I dont think it is a wise thing to let Partey go at this point in time specially as Partey loves the club so much.

  3. Way off topic guys. The article is about Partey.

    I dont think Partey will leave anytime soon. Selling him would actually take us backwards. World class midfielders are nt easy to find nowsdays. Not to mention how expensive they have become eg. Bellingham, Rice, Caiceido, etc etc.

    Partey’s drop in form could be attributed to him being overplayed. The lack of depth the past season was the reason we didn’t end up winning the league.

    Partey, Rice, Caiceido, Elneny & perhaps Lakonga should be enough steel to carry us over the line this time around.

    1. Nobody EVER does anything to discourage it, but I agree, going OT is really irritating and is actually a recognized form of trolling.

  4. crazy idea indeed. Selling partey which was our engine eventhough he had blip in the end of season was unthinkable solution.
    The correct one – extend Partey’s contact to 2 years, get Caicedo and Rice, do not guarantee his starting place but to compete.

  5. It’s an interesting question. If we got rice, and the only way to sign caceido as well was to let partey go, I’m not sure if I’d do it,and I’ve been hugely impressed with caicedo this year.
    Partey’s skillset is very hard to replace. It might be that caicedo and rice could take over perfectly well, but it would be a big risk imo.
    I’d want to keep TP around for at least another year, personally. With xhaka likely on the move, I think we need some continuity.

  6. Herr Drier made a very interesting observation yesterday – if the rumours around Partey are to be believed, wouldn’t it be wise to let him go and sign Caicedo in his place?

    If there is no substance to the rumours keep him and STILL sign Caicedo.

  7. If Arsenal are brainless idiots they will sell Partey and get Caciedo. I dont think they are!!!!! No contest, Partey on a different level than the agricultural Caciedo.

    1. Yeah, he’s careless with some of his challenges which has resulted in the most PL yellows of the season, but surprisingly not one red. He needs to get his game under a bit more control, but you can see why Arteta might see him as an Xhaka replacement.

  8. Let Partey leave? that will be unacceptable in my opinion. Did you guys forget so easily some brilliant goals he scored from the midfield last season, men, those are world-class goals and it’s rare to find midfield players in his position with that kind of performance and goals in world football today.

    His drop in form towards the end of the season was natural, he only needed some rest, and if only we had dept in our squad for a rotation that could’ve not been a problem, I see Partey coming back next season stronger, what Arsenal need next season is a bigger squad to accommodate fatigue and nothing more.

  9. There’s no sense in selling TP. Buy Rice and Caicedo if you can and still keep him. But if going for both and at the end of the day, we end up loosing them, it’s better we prioritise one over the other. Get a top top striker and we shall be ready the next season. Two or three quality players are enough. I repeat, we don’t need quantity.

  10. I’m not enthused by Declan Rice’s abilities via-á-vis the price tag.
    I’d rather buy Caicedo and pair him with Thomas as organizers of the party in our midfield.
    Amongst the four (Jorginho included), Thomas is the best.
    He can play at the top for the next 4 years so age wouldn’t be a major factor.
    At this stage of the Process, I will not throw away a player, accomplished and suitable to our team for a couple of potentials yet to adapt to our team.
    Keep Partey as one of the best experienced hands needed to blend and pull the younger ones ahead.
