Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey has been mostly mentioned in Arsenal’s transfer rumours ahead of the summer window with suggestions that he is highly needed.
It is also claimed that the Ghanian player is keen to part ways with the La Liga outfit, favouring a move to the English Premier League with Arsenal as his preferred destination.
Arsenal have got Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torriera but none of them have been able to keep the defence secured as needed and Partey has already proven that he can handle the job for Mikel Arteta.

However, the Gunners seems not interested in dragging a possible deal for the player and have decided to enter negotiation for a fee.
A £45million price tag has been slammed as his release clause which the Gunners might not be able to pay, especially after announcing a £27.1 million loss last year.
With the North London outfit now ready to step up their chase of the star player, there is a need to open negotiations with Atletico Madrid to have the fee reduced.
Meanwhile, Arsenal will seek to focus on their bid to secure a spot for Europa League qualification if they cannot make the Champions League and that will require concentration and hard work.
