The latest report has confirmed that the English Premier League club Arsenal have submitted another bid for Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey with manager Mikel Arteta very keen on his signature.
The Gunners have already secured the signature of Dani Ceballos on loan as a midfielder but there is a need to bring in a player who can add depth to the team as a defensive midfielder, with the Spanish manager hoping on a deal for the Ghanaian international.

It would be recalled that the Gunners had offered Matteo Guendouzi plus cash to the Spanish La Liga outfit for the player but it was rejected as they are insisting on his £45 million release clause which would be difficult to meet.
However, the latest report claims that the Gunners have submitted another bid by offering two players plus cash to Atletico Madrid for Thomas Partey. It is understood that Alexandre Lacazette has now been added to Matteo Guendouzi plus cash to be able to strike a deal.
It is understood that Atletico Madrid are also interested in the signature of the Arsenal striker with the possibility that the Frenchman would be heading the exit door before the end of the summer transfer window.
