Partey closing in on Saudi move

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey is closing in on a move to Saudi Arabia.

The Ghanaian is about to enter the final year of his contract at the Emirates, and, although he was an integral part of the team during the run-in, his continued struggles to stay fit for any extended period of time have seen him deemed surplus to requirements.

Now the Gunners are prepared to accept a reduced fee for him, accepting that they will not get back the ₤46  million they paid when they activated his Atlético Madrid release clause in 2020.

He has gone on to make 115 appearances for the club, but has spent almost as much time in the treatment room as the pitch, making it difficult for Mikel Arteta to have any faith in hos availability.

Partey will probably be one of the first in a line of players heading out the exit door in North London this summer, as Arteta looks to ruthlessly refine his squad even further.
