Thomas Partey future

Thomas Partey in La Liga action for Atletico Madrid in February 2020

The future of Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey has been the subject of growing speculation in recent weeks.

The Ghanaian is understood to have a £45m release clause in his contract at the Wanda Metropolitano, which a number of clubs are thought to be considering triggering.

Arsenal are reportedly most interested having identified a holding midfielder as their top transfer target, although the asking price could prove to be an issue in the post-coronavirus market.

Thomas joined Atletico in 2015 and has gone on to make more than 150 appearances for the club.
