Paris Saint-Germain are continuing their search for a tall midfielder with players such as Lorenzo Pellegrini, Sergej Milinković-Savić, and Tiémoué Bakayoko linked with a move to the French capital in recent weeks.
Now, there’s another player on Les Parisiens’ radar. According to RMC Sport journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi, PSG are eyeing Atlético Madrid midfielder, Thomas Partey. Furthermore, Bouhafsi adds that the 26-year-old “is very much appreciated” by the capital club.

When it comes to his height, which is one of the attributes PSG sporting director, Leonardo, is looking for, Partey stands at 6’0″. Aside from his stature, the Atlético midfielder plays the majority time in the defensive midfield position. This season, Partey has featured in 35 matches for Atléti.
As for the potential cost, Transfermarkt values the 26-year-old at €40 million, but it could take a bit more to pry Partey out of Atlético since he’s under contract until 2023.
The Ghana international is also link to Arsenal FC; however, unless the Gunners qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League, a move to London seems unlikely.
