Thomas Partey

Fabrizio Romano told CaughtOffside: “If you remember in the summer, Partey was already considered as candidate for sale until end of June, but then Mikel Arteta decided to keep him; so anything can happen there [the midfield] in the summer. For now it’s very quiet, as he’s injured now so there are no concrete updates so far.”
