Premier League side Arsenal are reportedly interested in the signing Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey so as to bolster their squad for next season in all competitions.
Since the day the Gunners defeated Chelsea in the final of the FA Cup at Wembley, Mikel Arteta who is the manager has been planning to bring more legs to the Emirates.
The Gunners will be playing in the Europa League next season thanks to their FA Cup win as they failed to finish among the top four at the just concluded Premier League season.
According to the report on UK Sun, Arsenal chiefs have offered Atletico Madrid to pick one player from the trio of Hector Bellerin, Lucas Torreira or Alexandre Lacazette for them to have Partey.
Thomas Partey who is a Ghanaian footballer has been superb for Atletico Madrid since he joined the Spanish club nine years ago.
But despite offering Atletico Madrid the choice to pick one of their three stars, the Spanish club are still insisting that the Gunners will still have to add £45 million.
This is said to be giving Arsenal chiefs trouble because they are not ready to meet Atletico Madrid's asking price.
The report added that Arsenal may now be considering to sell German star Mesut Ozil and Matteo Guendouzi for them to raise more money to buy players this summer.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how French professional footballer Matteo Guendouzi failed to congratulate his Arsenal teammates after their brilliant FA Cup win over London rivals Chelsea at Wembley.
It was a memorable moment last Saturday for Arsenal stars and their fans beating Chelsea to win their 14th FA Cup title in history.
Before the encounter, Arsenal players knew that only a win will send them to Europe next season after their failure to finish among the top four at the just-concluded season.
And they did themselves lot of good as Gabonese striker Aubameyang scored twice to give the Gunners 2-1 win over the Blues.
