Atletico Madrid Midfielder Reportedly Turns Down PSG For Arsenal

A couple of days ago, reports surfaced that Paris Saint-Germain was beginning to show interest in Atlético Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey.

However, it seems as though there’s a thorn in the capital clubs’ pursuit of the 26-year-old. According to The Telegraph (via Culture PSG), the Ghana international has told relatives that he would like to join Arsenal FC.

It’s no secret that the Gunners would like to bring Partey to London, but second-hand rumors through relatives and friends can often prove to be false information.

Nonetheless, if Partey is an option for Les Parisiens, it doesn’t seem as though the 26-year-old is the first choice for sporting director, Leonardo. The Brazilian is looking through Italy first for a tall midfielder.

PSG needs someone with height in the midfield and Partey does fit the need standing at 6’0″, plus Arsenal is likely to play in the Europa League once again. As a result, if Leonardo wants to bring him to Paris, it shouldn’t take that much convincing.

    Or maybe he wants to play in a proper, competitive league, such as the EPL week-in week-out, and not spend the whole season only having the CL games to look forward to?

      When was the last time Arsenal was competitive in anything?

        ED, remember three FA cups, one UEFA euro cup finals and a consistent top four to six finish in a proper competitive league. Answer your own question then.

        1. Ed says:

          Just like PSG fans are told not to brag about Ligue 1 titles, I don’t know if I would brag about a Europa League final and finishing in the top 4-6.

    ED, I don’t recall anyone bragging.

    1. Ed says:

      The comment from Peter sure sounded like he was proud of those accomplishments.
