Will Arsenal trigger Thomas Partey release clause?
Thomas Partey’s father revealed in April that talks were underway between Arsenal and Atletico for a possible switch.
“I called my son after hearing the rumours and he told me that the rumours are true,” he told Tru FM.
“He told me they are holding talks between him and Arsenal. It all depends on the offer Atletico are demanding.
“If he goes to Arsenal fine, they have a lot supporters in Ghana.”
Spanish football journalist Guillem Balague is unsure if Arsenal will continue their pursuit of Partey after learning the value of his release clause.
Now, what I’m hearing is he’s got a buyout clause of €50million,” he said on his YouTube channel. “This €50m is an interesting figure but not many clubs are going to go that far for Thomas.
“We’ve seen that PSG has already spent that on [Mauro] Icardi and that will probably be already the record for this summer in the transfer window. Has there been contact? There was a very clear possibility of him moving to England last summer.
“Spurs, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal all enquired about Thomas. It didn’t happen but it tells you that perhaps it’s the player that Atletico Madrid would be more fearful of losing because he’s growing, but is more willing to leave. That’s as much as we can say.
“Atletico Madrid would like him to sign another contract, but he’s not signing another contract, that’s as much as I can tell you.”
Premier league is set to resume on June 17 and Arsenal will be playing away home to face Manchester City at Etihad, will Partey be announce before then?
