Thomas Partey has held talks over a potential transfer to Arsenal at the end of the season, according to his father.
The Atletico Madrid midfielder has been on the Gunners’ radar for some time and there were initial discussions held last summer over a potential switch to north London.
Partey remained with Atletico but has continued to attract interest with some exceptional performances for Diego Simeone’s side this season.
Speculation has continued to link him with Arsenal throughout the campaign and now has father Jacob, while speaking on the Ghana-based “Tru Fm Sports World Show” has revealed that there is a chance his son could join Mikel Arteta’s side.
“I called my son after hearing the rumours and he told me that the rumours are true,” said Jacob Partey. “He told me they are holding talks between him and Arsenal. It all depends on the offer Atletico are demanding.
“If he goes to Arsenal, fine, they have a lot of supporters in Ghana. I will be happy if he decides to move to Arsenal. What they are discussing now is how Atletico will release him.”
