Arsenal have stepped up their pursuit for Ghanaian international Thomas Partey. According to Footy Area media outlet, the club is said to be in advanced talks with the player, with his agent getting ready to meet with the Arsenal hierarchy next week to sort out the remainder of a proposed €50m deal for the star midfielder.
Arsenal is said to be keen to finalise the deal, and have asked his agents JJSports to travel to the Emirates stadium to seal off the deal.
There might just be a very big and exciting announcement by the end of the week for the clubs fans to relish, if things go on smoothly as planned.
Partey is currently on a €65,000 a week deal which runs until 2022 with Atletico, and the club is willing to hand him a new salary worth double of his current contract, to ward of interests from other clubs.
Arsenal have now stepped up their pursuit for Thomas Partey because, they are obviously not the only side scrambling for his signature. With rivals Manchester United, and Italian giants Juventus currently monitoring his situation.
It is believed that Arsenal are willing to splash the cash on Partey, and have already presented him with a nice £175,000 a week deal, which is almost triple of the players current salary.
The deal seems very likely due to his seemingly low release clause of €50m, which is definitely a cheap price for a player of such immense quality.
