Arsenal aren’t going to pay the €50m release clause for Thomas Partey, but they do have two free transfer signings ready for the summer, according to a report.

It is not true that Arsenal are going to pay Atletico Madrid the Thomas Partey release clause, despite recent reports. In fact, they aren’t currently planning to make an offer at all.

Partey has been on the radar of the Gunners for the past few months, as Mikel Arteta enhances his chance for a holding midfielder.

Instead, the reports of Arsenal interest come from Partey’s agency offering him out. That’s apparently why the representatives were so keen to downplay talk of contact between the two. They don’t want Atletico getting the impression there’s tapping-up going on.

Arsenal already have two signings ready for this summer, both for players who will be out of contract.

Most likely, Ryan Fraser, Willian and Layvin Kurzawa are all on Arsenal’s transfer radar. All three are available for free and regularly linked with a move to Arsenal.

It’s hard to see the Gunners going for someone like Partey unless they make the Champions League. But they can dream.

Partey joined Atletico Madrid back in 2015, and was instrumental as the Madrid side won the UEFA Europa League back in 2018.

The 27 year old made 35 appearances in La Liga last season, scoring 3 times.
