As reported first by Charles Watts of Goal, Arsenal are making a deadline day attempt to sign Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid.
The 27 year old has a €50m release clause which the Gunners have informed La Liga – who manage them – that they are willing to pay it in full.
Arsenal’s legal eagles are working on the nuts and bolts of the deal right now, which would see the player undergo a medical in Spain because of the current difficulties with international travel because of Covid-19.
The Guardian report that the Ghanaian international will sign a four year deal with wages in the region of £250,000 a week.
It’s also being reported that we’re set to sign 18 year old Swedish striker Nikolaj Moller from Malmo in deal worth around £500,000.
It does look as if things are happening folks. Remember, keep up with all the latest on the transfer deadline day live blog – and we’ll publish official confirmations as and when they happen.
