Arsenal transfer target Thomas Partey ‘being pushed out door’ by Atletico Madrid in huge boost over summer deal – The Sun
THOMAS PARTEY is available for a summer exit from Atletico Madrid, according to reports.
Arsenal have been tracking the Ghana international for some time and can complete a swoop if they match his £43.5million release clause.
And LaLiga side Atletico are preparing for a Premier League side to nab Partey when the summer transfer market opens.
That is according to Spanish football journalist Guillem Balague, who told his YouTube channel: "Even his dad has said that his buy-out clause is 50 million euros, so if anyone wants him, he is available.
"That is true. Atletico Madrid are pushing him out the door as well.
"Because the club are saying, 'Well we cannot do anything if a club comes in with 50 million'. Almost wishing that the 50 million arrives.
"They are saying that they believe Thomas won't stay there next season. Isn't that another way of saying that he is for sale?
"And they believe that it will be the Premier League and they have indications that Arsenal will be the one [to sign him]."
Goal believe the Gunners are ready to offer Partey, 27, a huge pay increase to £195,000-a-week if the signs for the North London club.
It is a switch that Ghana colleague Joseph Larweh Attamah has urged the midfielder to take.
