The Partey is over for Arsenal midfielder

Thomas Partey will definitely be leaving Arsenal this summer.

The Ghanaian international is about to turn 31, and there are increasing concerns about his injury record at the Emirates.

Last season, after picking up an early foot injury, he only played 15 minutes of football between early September and the end of February.

He did play ten of the last 12 matches, but his presence on the field was often at the expense of the midfield control that Mikel Arteta wants from his side, and he was prone to surrendering possession too easily.

The Gunners were open to selling him last summer, but struggled to find a buyer, and decided to retain him to allow Declan Rice and Kai Havertz to bed into the team.

There have been suggestions that Partey could be heading to Saudi Arabia, and there is also interest from several European clubs, including Juventus.

He still has one year left on his current deal at the Emirates, although it remains to be seem what sort of fee they can get for him.
