Arsenal are apparently edging ever closer to the signing of Atletico Madrid midfielder, Thomas Partey, with Ghanasoccernet reporting the player’s agent is on his way to London for talks.

The battling midfield star has been consistently linked with a move to the Emirates all summer but has so far seen a move fail to materialise.

However, the latest reports seem to indicate the Gunners are ready to finalise a move, with a 50m euro fee being mentioned to secure Partey’s services.

Reports of Partey moving to north London have continually surfaced. Indeed, Spanish football expert, Guillem Balague claimed yesterday that although Arsenal do want him, a move was unlikely given the fee involved.

But it seems Arsenal are willing to meet the release-clause of Partey and finally land a player they’ve courted for so long.
