Lots of Arsenal fans are buzzing as football reporter Mike McGrath has said that Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey wants to join the north London club in the summer transfer window.
As per the Daily Telegraph, the 26-year old has made it clear that he would like to move to the Gunners and is hoping that a deal can be struck between the two clubs.
The Ghanaian international has apparently told those close to him that he has ambitions of proving himself in the Premier League with a move to the Emirates Stadium.
Indeed, the central midfield player boasts relatively impressive stats in La Liga this season that could help AFC become more solid defensively. Atletico’s number five wins 6.6 duels per game, and also averages 2.1 tackles, 1.4 interceptions and 1.2 clearances per match, according to Sofascore.
Partey’s potential arrival could spell danger for Lucas Torreira and Granit Xhaka, who both play in similar positions.
Who should make way in Arsenal's starting eleven if Partey signs?
