Arsenal FC ready to sell Thomas Partey after 3-years
The midfield warrior who is approaching 30 has made 80 appearance for the Emirates since joining in 2020
Arsenal are prepared to sell as many as eight first-team players this summer, with James Maddison, João Cancelo and Declan Rice among their targets.
Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey has surprisedly appeared in the shake-up exercise of Mikel Arteta including Granit Xhaka, Rob Holding, Kieran Tierney. Partey since joining the Emirates in 2020 has been an integral player for Mikel Arteta after joining on a fee of £45 million.
The Black Stars has ascended to become of the best defensive midfielders in Europe on his day, too, as Arsenal have returned to the Champions League and challenged for the Premier League title this season.
But has seen his form drop in recent weeks.
The No.5 shifted was at fault for a goal against West Ham United and particularly careless in possession in the crunch clash against Manchester City, finding himself dropped by manager Mikel Arteta for games against Newcastle United and Brighton & Hove Albion in the run-in.
The former Atletico Madrid star is wanted by two unnamed Italian clubs – and that Arsenal may look to sell the 29-year-old midfielder.
Partey was one of Arteta’s first signings after director Raul Sanlehhi left in 2020.
He was purchased on the deadline day of that year’s summer window and has played just 80 times across three seasons, with injuries hampering his momentum at key points of the campaign.
Currently, he is valued at €38m by Transfermarkt.
