ARSENAL might have to sacrifice at least one of four players in order to sign Thomas Partey.

The Gunners are keen to sign the Ghanaian midfielder from Atletico Madrid this summer, with a fee of £43million being mooted.

But the revolving door could be put to full use at the Emirates this summer as Mikel Arteta continues to out his own imprint on the squad.

Partey was enjoying a stellar season in LaLiga before the coronavirus pandemic brought action to a standstill.

Arsenal could be sweating that a failure to bag a Champions League spot could cost them – they are in ninth and eight points off fourth-placed Chelsea.

Football London thinks there could potentially be four players who could leave North London to make room for the combative 26-year-old if they manage to convince him.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta would love to bring Partey to the Emirates, with the Atletico Madrid star enjoying a positive campaign under Diego Simeone over in Spain.

Manchester United have also been linked, particularly given the uncertainty surrounding Paul Pogba’s long-term future at the club.
