Thomas Partey to Arsenal rumor has seen an exponential rise in recent weeks.
The Gunners have been keeping tabs on the Ghanaian international, who has a release clause of £44m.
The combative midfielder could play a key role in Arteta’s XI if he is to make a move to London.
Before the halt on football, the defensive midfield position was one of the prime areas of discussion for the Gunners, and Partey’s name was always one of the first to pop up.
Although the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic have made things difficult on the market, the Atletico Madrid star remains the priority for the Gunners.
The prospect of bringing in a midfielder of Partey’s calibre has stirred some huge excitement among the Arsenal faithful.
So much so that a member of Arsenal fanbase on Facebook decided to take over the Ghanaian president’s live stream meant to address the nation over the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Fans took matters in their own hands to ask the president if Thomas Partey would indeed sign for the Londoners –
Yesterday the president of Ghana addressed the nation on a national tv on coronavirus. It was also live on Facebook. Fans took to their phones to ask the president of Thomas Partey was signing for Arsenal. 😂😭— LTArsenal™ (@ltarsenal) May 11, 2020
