Arsenal is in a bid to land Thomas Partey over swap deal with Lucas Torreira.
Lucas Torreira is reportedly very close to becoming an Atlético Madrid player., A swap deal could make this come through.
Arsenal has been the favourite to sign the Ghanian highly rated midfielder from Atletico Madrid. But the Spanish club is asking a fund way too much for Arsenal.
On another note, Atletico Madrid is going for Arsenal’s Uruguayan midfielder, who’s game time at the club is now limited, due to the presence of Dani Ceballos from Real Madrid and others.
The English side would want something around €25M for the midfielder, so Arsenal would look forward to indulge in a swap deal.
Atletico Madrid too won’t hesitate to include Partey in a swap deal as reports have said that they can’t afford Torreira up-front.
An offer of €25m + Torreira for Partey is reasonable. According to @afcscouts a swap deal between Atlético and Arsenal for Torreira and Partey is close.
They would exchange £23M and Torreira to make up the fee of Parteys release clause and he would make his way to Arsenal as Torreira would move to Atletico Madrid.
