Arsenal fans closer to seeing summer arrival of Partey after Simeone makes personal call to Torreira
Atletico Madrid are reportedly eyeing a move for Lucas Torreira, which could open the door for Arsenal to finally sign Thomas Partey.
Torreira completed a £26million move from Sampdoria to Arsenal last summer and the 23-year-old had a promising debut season in north London, making 50 appearances in all competitions.
But lasts season the 23-year old has struggled to kick on after his great first season and has only recently managed to force himself into the plans of Mikel Arteta.
Torreira has constantly showed his desire to leave the Arsenal, and that has started rumours once again that a number of clubs are interested in taking him away from the club this transfer window.
And with Arsenal seeking to raise funds in order to sign their top target Thomas Partey, he could be the man that helps Arsenal finally secure a deal for the £43 million rated midfielder by October.
According to Sebas Giovanelli, Madrid boss Diego Simeone has personally called Torreira and told him he wants to bring him to Spain, which would mean that the Spaniards would eb open to the idea of a player-plus-cash deal for Partey.
Partey is just the type of star Arsenal need in the centre of the pitch and so with that being said, lets see if the reports are true about Torreira possibly leaving the club for a move to Madrid.
This would be a deal that works out for both clubs and the players, as all seem interested in making moves this summer.
