Atletico Madrid demand £45m fee up front for Arsenal target Thomas Partey?

Arsenal have been told by Atletico Madrid to pay Thomas Partey's full £45m release clause if they wish to sign the midfielder, according to a report.

Atletico Madrid are reportedly refusing to budge on their demands for Arsenal target Thomas Partey with a week of the transfer window to go.

The Gunners are believed to be in the market for a central midfielder ahead of the May 5 deadline, with Lyon's Houssem Aouar another possible option.

However, The Athletic states that Arsenal have no chance of signing Partey for anything less than his full £45m release clause, which is expected to be out of their price range.

Ghana international Partey, a second-half substitute in Atleti's 6-1 La Liga win over Granada at the weekend, is under contract at the Wanda Metropolitano for another three years.

Meanwhile, a separate report suggests that Arsenal may yet use Lucas Torreira as a possible makeweight in a deal for the 27-year-old.

Torreira has not been involved for Arsenal this season and is deemed surplus to requirements by boss Mikel Arteta.
