Arsenal to sign £43 million Partey with the funds from Bellerin’s summer exit
Arsenal will look to sign Thomas Partey with the money raised if Hector Bellerin is sold to Paris Saint-Germain, it has been claimed.
It is no secret that Arsenal are massive fans of Thomas Partey and have been trying to secure a transfer deal for the powerhouse all summer, but with funds tight at the Emirates, they have so far failed to get the business done.
It is widely believed that Madrid want £43 million for the player, despite the recent rumours that they are resigned to losing Partey after he rejected a contract offer to stay at the club.
However, According to The Athletic, Bellerin could make way in order to fund a move for the Atletico Madrid midfielder.
Paris Saint-Germain have held discussions over the former Barcelona full-back without submitting an official bid, although it is thought the two clubs are well apart in their valuations of the player.
the reports go on to say The Gunners could sell the Spain right-back and use that money to make sure that they wrap up a deal for Partey, as it would hand the club another £27 million towards a possible deal.
Mikel Arteta wants a midfield enforcer who is also comfortable on the ball and Partey’s blend of technical and physical qualities make him the ideal target.
Look, it will be a shame to see Bellerin leave the club if the reports are true, but even Arsenal fans have to admit, he has not been the same player he was a few seasons ago, so letting him go may not be a big loss.
Arsenal need a player like Partey in midfield as he would bring some quality to the side, so it will be very interesting to see how this plays out as there have been so many reports about this man over the weeks.
