Juventus ‘consider’ summer move for £45m Arsenal midfielder

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey is attracting interest from overseas.

Thomas Partey brought high expectations with him when he arrived at Arsenal for £45 million in 2020.

However, the midfielder has only recently started to shine in the Premier League after a rather underwhelming first season with the Gunners.

Partey’s improving form has caught the attention of Juventus, according to Tuttosport.

The Serie A club have long admired the Ghana international since he was at Atletico Madrid, however the cost of a deal for Partey has prevented them from making an offer for the player.

When Arsenal attempted to sign Arthur Melo in January, Juve demanded Partey be included in the deal, however the Gunners were quick to turn it down.

While the Italian giants will be eager to finally land their man this summer, it it is still unlikely that they could affor him.

Given Arsenal paid his £45 million release clause two years ago, they will probably demand even more than that if they are to part ways with the 28-year-old.

The London club have also been keen on bolstering their midfield and it would be surprising to see them let Partey go given their lack of depth.

Mikel Arteta’s side have previously been linked with the likes of Lille’s Renato Sanches and Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans.
