Arsenal have second Partey bid rejected by Atletico 0

Posted on July 28, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal have reportedly had two offers for Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey rejected, according to The Guardian.

Partey has recently become a very important player for Diego Simeone’s team. Primarily a defence-minded midfielder, he has made a total of 46 appearances this season so far, with their Champions League campaign still to have its conclusion after they knocked out Premier League title winners Liverpool in the round of 16. The 27-year-old powerhouse played a big part in that feat. He also managed to get on the scoresheet four times.

Arsenal have intensified their interest in signing Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid this summer, according to David Ornstein of The Athletic.

The 27-year old midfield powerhouse has played 42 times for Diego Simeone’s side in all competitions this season. He scored three goals and provided no more than one assist, but it’s hardly relevant for a player whose primary duty is to protect the back line by positioning himself directly in front of them and fight for every ball.

Arsenal are set to hold talks over a new contract with Alexandre Lacazette amid the interest in his services coming from Atletico Madrid, according to ESPN.

The club still face uncertainty over the future of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer, but they are apparently adamant that they won’t be parting ways with both strikers. The pair are good friends, but both of them are keen to hear and consider Arsenal’s long-term vision under Mikel Arteta before making their respective decisions, especially in the light of the financial impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Almost all players except Mesut Ozil have agreed to take a 12.5% pay cut, with the German still earning his £350,000 per week.

There’s no rest for the wicked these days, even in the midst of a global pandemic.

Football may not be fully back to business with some leagues still waiting to receive the green light, but it does appear as if we’re on our way back to a point where we can say that full operations have resumed once more. Whether or not that lasts, of course, is a different matter altogether, but it’s definitely worth noting that things haven’t been this busy in months – and that goes for the reported dealings in the transfer market, too.

According to Sky Sports, Atletico Madrid are considering a swoop for Alexandre Lacazette.

The Spanish club have been without the services of Diego Costa for quite a while now, and the former Chelsea striker is set to be out for further two months. His injury has effectively left head coach Diego Simeone with Alvaro Morata as the only option for the position furthest up the pitch, and he plans to counter the problem by dipping into the transfer market this month.
