Arsenal are reportedly weighing up a summer move for Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey.
The 26-year-old has been in impressive form for his Spanish club this season and again caught the eye with his performance in Wednesday's 3-2 win over Liverpool in the Champions League.
According to The Telegraph, the Gunners will consider moving for the Ghana international in this summer's transfer window with the midfielder having a release clause of £45m.
The report claims that Mikel Arteta is determined to bring a new defensive midfielder to the club ahead of the 2020-21 campaign and has identified Thomas as the ideal signing.
The 27-time international made his first-team debut for Atletico in 2015 and has since appeared on 174 occasions for the Spanish giants, scoring 15 times in the process.
