Jorginho and Thomas Partey to leave Arsenal in January

Arsenal are ready to accept any offers that are deemed 'appropriate' for Jorginho and Thomas Partey in the January window, according to a report from Football Insider. Arsenal are keen to improve their squad, but must let some players leave to balance their budget - especially after such a high-spending summer.

Both players are reported to be on high wages - additionally, with the arrival of Declan Rice from West Ham, neither of the two have played very often this season. As such, it makes sense to move them on - especially as they are both approaching the twilight of their respective careers.

Takehiro Tomiyasu linked with AC Milan move

Takehiro Tomiyasu has been something of an unsung hero for Arsenal this season, after spending much of 2022/23 playing second fiddle to Ben White at right-back. His improved form has not gone unnoticed - according to Daniele Longo on X (formerly Twitter), AC Milan want to bring the Japanese international to the San Siro.

This season, Tomiyasu has made 13 Premier League appearances for the Gunners, scoring a single goal and registering a single assist. He isn't the only Arsenal defender who Milan have been linked with prior to the January window - they are also believed to be interested in a move for Jakub Kiwior - it is unclear if either of them will leave as of yet.
