Arsenal reinforce its core and consider Thomas impossible

The 'Gunners' again achieved the loan of the Real Madrid player Ceballos and added pieces to their midfield, in which they already ruled out adding the Ghanaian Atlético.


Thomas Partey (27 years old) was a prime target for Arsenal. His coach, Arteta, wanted to strengthen his midfield to try to rub shoulders with the greats of the Premier. For this, they had thought for several months in the Ghanaian to strengthen that area, especially after the departure of Ceballos, back to Real Madrid after his loan. However, the fact that they have not been able to start conversations with Atlético over Thomas has meant that the Gunners have put all the meat on the grill to achieve the return of the Utreran to London and have achieved their goal, since the Real Madrid player will play as new on loan under the orders of the Gipuzkoan technician.

Arsenal have tried several times throughout this season to approach Thomas in order to recruit him to their ranks. The fact that he has a relatively low release clause (50 million euros) and that he has not accepted Atlético's renewal offers gave him hope of being able to do so. However, there have been two factors that have ruined his plans. On the one hand, the coronavirus crisis, which has caused the vast majority of clubs to suffer losses this campaign, limiting their ability to make large outlays. And, on the other hand, Atlético's will not to negotiate the sale of the Ghanaian, but refers to the full amount of the amount marked for his freedom if they want to remove him from the Metropolitan Wanda.

There have been many teams that have shown interest in Thomas throughout this course. Juventus, PSG, Inter, but the most insistent has undoubtedly been the London club. He has tried different techniques to approach the operation, including the possibility of adding players as a way to lower the amount to pay. They even considered paying the 50 million euros that their freedom is worth, but that figure, today, is too high for their coffers. For Simeone he continues to be a capital player in his schemes and he does not want to lose him, much less facilitate his departure despite the fact that the player still does not agree to renew his contract, which ends in 2023. In England, specifically the 'Goal' medium, They affirm that the player would be willing to go to Arsenal, but that in no case would he force his exit. Only if both clubs reached an agreement (something that the rojiblanco club absolutely ruled out) or the English paid the clause (which is not within their possibilities at the moment) would the Ghanaian move to London. For this reason, Arsenal considers it an impossible mission and has opted for other ways to meet their needs in midfield.
