Arsenal : Thomas Partey summer transfer report
Mikel Arteta will be looking to make his Arsenal squad ahead of the 2020/21 season.
The Gunners have not appeared in the Champions League since 2017 and they have an uphill battle to clinch a place in Europe’s top competition.
Big changes have to be made at the Emirates and that means the club are going to have to splash out in the transfer market.
Atletico Madrid Thomas Partey has been heavily linked with a move to north London ahead of next term and many Arsenal fans are hoping they can clinch a deal for his signature.
The 27-year-old has earned rave reviews in La Liga over the past few seasons and he looks likely to move on for a new challenge at some point in the future.
Midfield is one area the Gunners need to strengthen and Arsenal are doing all they can to try and entice him to the capital.
The club is reported to be willing to triple his salary to sign him. That could prove key as the report also states that the Spanish side’s contract renewal offer will be less than proposed a few months ago due to coronavirus pandemic.
“The Premier League is a good league, it’s very competitive and has some of the best players in the world,” he told ESPN. “Hopefully, one day. I would like to play there. My agents are on it so I will leave everything for them. For me, I am happy playing football and I will continue to play where I am now until something comes up for consideration, Partey added.
