EPL TRANSFER: How Arsenal plan to “force” Partey deal


From all indications, North London outfit Arsenal are desperate to land Atletico Madrid midfielder, Thomas Partey this summer transfer window.

The Gunners manager, Mikel Arteta is desperate to add depth to his midfield and has identified the Ghanaian international midfielder as the best man to take up the role in the coming season.

However, Kike Marin reports that Mikel Arteta is hoping to “force” Atletico Madrid to agree on a deal for Thomas Partey by offering three players to the Spanish outfit.

Hector Bellerin, Lucas Torriera, and Alexandre Lacazette are the three players the North London outfit are willing to offer Atletico Madrid so as to have them release him.

It is reported that Atletico Madrid are interested in the signature of Lucas Torriera or Hector Bellerin but they do not seek a swap deal, rather a separate negotiation, especially for Alexandre Lacazette.

A list of names have been drawn up at the Emirates Stadium for the exit door as manager Mikel Arteta hopes to create some space for new signings as well as cash in from them to be able to sponsor deals.

One of the surprise names on the list is the French striker as he is believed to have a future at the club.
