Italian reporter Gianluca Di Marzio provides an update on Arsenal’s pursuit of Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey.
Italian reporter Gianluca Di Marzio has actually declared that Arsenal are securely thinking about an offer for Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey during this summer’s transfer window.
The Gunners continue to be credited with an interest in the Ghana international, who is apparently stalling on signing a new offer at the Wanda Metropolitano in the middle of talk of interest from the Premier League.
Di Marzio has actually stated that Mikel Arteta‘s side desire Thomas “a lot”, while Atletico would be open to offering the 26- year-old for the right rate ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
Nevertheless, the reporter has actually stated that the Spanish giants “are in control” when it concerns the midfielder.
“Arsenal want him a lot. Every Atletico Madrid player is in the market. So, it depends a lot on the offer. Atletico are open to selling every player if the offer is good,” Di Marzio informed Sky Sports News.
” It likewise depends on budget – just how much Arsenal can pay for? And just how much Atletico desire? Atletico will desire money, so it is hard to see them doing an offer including other players as part of it.
” They are very clever when it concerns doing offers and it will not be a surprise if Thomas Partey was to remain. He is young, he is not like Diego Costa, and they can sell him next year if they desire and even in 2 years’ time. They are in control.”
Thomas, who has a contract with Diego Simeone‘s side up until the summer of 2023, has actually scored 3 times in 35 appearances for his La Liga club during the 2019-20 campaign.
