Arsenal might have “agreed” Partey deal with Torreira talks


A lot of issues have been unfolding in Arsenal’s bid to get rid of some players and bring in new faces so as to stabilize the team to face the season’s challenge after two Premier League games.

It is understood that Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid are keen on the signature of Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira and to get him, Thomas Partey who is a top target for the Gunners will have to head in the other direction.

An attempt by the Spanish La Liga team to offer a loan deal to the North London outfit for the service of the Uruguay international failed as a permanent buy is the only option for Arsenal.

However, El Gol Digital reports that Atletico Madrid are keen on Lucas Torreira and cannot meet the financial implication. The only option is to let go of Thomas Partey to the Emirates Stadium.

It is understood that Thomas Partey is also keen on a move to the Arsenal and with the latest development; it could just be a deal for the two clubs to strike in the coming days.

Lucas Torreira was on the radar of a number of clubs, including Torino and Fiorentina but the two Serie A clubs might have been stepped backward in the race for him with Atletico Madrid now leading.
