According to reports, Arsenal are preparing a bid worth 50 million euros for the services of Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid.
The 27-year-old has reportedly agreed personal terms with the Gunners already and the only thing left is for the two clubs to agree a fee.
Atletico have been adamant on his 50 million euro release clause and knocked back Arsenal’s first bid of cash plus player as a result.
On present day, the Gunners are preparing to make an initial offer of 40 million euros with 10 million euros as add-ons for the player. According to the reports, Atletico Madrid treasure the Ghanaian and do not want to lose him.
However, Arsenal hopes that this offer and some pressure from the player will get the deal over the line.
Partey made over 40 appearances for Atletico Madrid in all competitions last season.
