Transfer Talk: Arsenal To Make A Move For £45M Atletico Star
March. 13, 2020
According to reports, Gunners' boss Mikel Arteta is planning a summer swoop for the Ghana international and is willing to shell out the £45 million release clause needed to secure his signature.
Arsenal are on the lookout for a defensive midfielder as Arteta prepares for his first full season in the Emirates' bench and looks to continue the impressive rebuilding job he has done since returning to the club following the dismissal of Unai Emery back in December.
The 26-year-old has been a hugely impressive presence for Diego Simone's side in both La Liga and the Champions League this season and was instrumental in Atletico's comeback against Jurgen Klopp's men on Merseyside. Now in his fifth season in the Spanish top flight, Partey has proved he has what it takes to thrive at the very highest level.
Partey has been linked with a move to England before, with Manchester United among the teams reportedly interested in bringing him to the Premier League in the past. After watching him get one over on Liverpool, Arsenal fans will hope that Arteta's transfer chase is a successful one.
