Which of these players would be sacrificed for Partey

Timothy Aiyeku



Thomas Partey

The reports of Arsenal’s interest in Atletico Madrid star Thomas Partey is unending with claims that the Gunners have stepped up their chase for the Ghana International midfielder.

A move for the midfielder is being threatened by funds and the North London outfit are busy with how to sanction the deal, according to The Mail.

While a swap deal is being considered, the names of Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi and Alexandre Lacazette have also continued to pop up.

Should that be the case, one of them will be part of the swap deal for Arsenal to succeed in snapping up the player.

The question of who to sacrifice and unwanted at the club has been the bone of contention.

Guendouzi at the moment is not finding life interesting at the Emirates Stadium as a result of the controversies he has been into, the reason why he has been left out of the squad for a couple of games. He is reported to have told the club hierarchy of his decision to leave the club.

Maybe he should pave way for the Ghana international since they play almost the same role on the pitch and Partey is a more preferred player.

Surprisingly, Alexandre Lacazette is always mentioned as names of those that should leave the club despite his quality and goal scoring ability. No doubt that most fans will not wish to see this happen.

Also, Lucas Torriera has been fantastic in his own right, despite battling with injuries but there are no doubts of his quality in the central midfield.

The decision would be left to the Arsenal management to make on who should be sacrificed.
