In what could prove to be one of the craziest deadline days in recent times, Arsenal may have a surprise package in the bag. Arsenal have chased Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey all summer with little success as Atletico refuse to lower their Release clause on the player.
Reports surfacing a couple of days ago suggested Arsenal may have given up o signing the Ghanaian midfielder alongside another midfield target in the person of Houssem Aouar, with the player having decided to remain with the French club after a meeting with the club.
However, according to SkySports News, Thomas Partey to Arsenal is still alive with a deadline day move absolutely possible asit only takes the activation of his release clause to seal a move. Further report from media outlet TheAFCBell, says Arsenal have called Thomas Partey’s Entourage in the last hours and a deal could yet happen.
It’s been made clear that Thomas Partey is willing to make the move to England but will not force a move away so the activation of his release clause remains the only way, and Arsenal may well be about to pull that off.
