Arsenal supporters are hopeful that reports suggesting the Gunners are heavily interested in Thomas Partey are true, and David Ornstein’s latest update will have them very excited.
Writing for The Athletic, Ornstein has said that the Gunners are interested in the defensive midfielder. He has also provided a very big update as he has written that they are intensifying their pursuit of Partey as they see him as a crucial transfer before the 2020/21 campaign.
This comes after it was announced that youngster Bukayo Saka penned a new contract at the Emirates.
Partey is contracted at Atletico until 2023 but will leave this summer if his £47m release clause is triggered, according to La Razon (via Daily Express).
He has been a rock in front of the defence as he has managed two successful tackles and 1.4 interceptions per game, whilst also averaging 1.9 successful dribbles a game, per WhoScored.
At the age of 27, he could be perfect for Arsenal for the next few years and could help the attacking talent around him have more freedom as he would surely add steel to the midfield.
For the Gunners, the deal seems like a no-brainer and with this big update from Ornstein, fans will get very excited as to what the transfer window can bring for the club.
