Arsenal have offered to triple Thomas Partey’s wages as the Gunners continue to push to sign the Atletico Madrid midfielder, reports say.

Partey is in talks to extend his contract with Atletico, but the club is facing financial issues due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Arsenal have long been linked with the Ghanian, who has a £44.5million release clause in his current contract. Goal claim Partey is weighing up his options after receiving a huge contract offer from Mikel Arteta’s side.

Arsenal are prepared to triple the wages Partey currently pockets at Atletico if he agrees to join the London side.

Atletico have so far rebuffed Arsenal’s advances, but reports in Spain claim the La Liga side are now open to cashing in on Partey.
