Romano spoke know the possibility of Partey and Aouar
We have to say that in the list, Arsenal want to try to sign one between Thomas [Partey] & [Houssem] Aouar, so they are the targets for Arsenal. It’s impossible to buy both at the moment if Arsenal are not going to sell any players.
On Thomas Partey, he said
The position of Atletico Madrid is if you want Thomas, you have to pay €50m to sign the player. In this moment, it’s impossible to get Thomas by negotiating. It’s about the release clause.
The player is also waiting because if Arsenal will not sign him this summer, he’s going to extend his contract with Atletico, the bid is ready from Atletico. Also Thomas is waiting to understand what Arsenal are going to do in the next [few] weeks.
