Thomas Partey – Atletico Madrid
The Ghana international interested Unai Emery last summer, which led to some informal talks over a transfer. Nothing materialised, though.
But Mikel Arteta is keen to bring in a new central midfielder this summer, allegedly making Thomas a top target. It’s understood that Atletico Madrid and the player’s representatives are aware of it.
And while Thomas is currently locked in contract talks with Atletico, Arsenal still believe in their chances despite a €50m price tag.
