Mikel Arteta’s wish of bringing Ghanaian midfield jewel – Thomas Teye Partey to Arsenal has been handed a huge boost as Atletico Madrid have identified Uruguayan star [Mauro Arambarri] as the right man to replace the Black Stars middie should his £45m transfer to the Emirates go through.
Mikel Arteta has identified the Ghanaian box-to-box midfielder who has made 35 appearances across all competitions so far this season and stood out in Los Rojiblancos’ Champions League defeat of reigning champions [Liverpool] back in March as the spine in his new look Arsenal team next season.
Partey is back in training with his team-mates as La Liga prepares to return to action amid the coronavirus crisis in June.
But the Daily Express reports that the Spanish giants [Atletico Madrid] have already lined up Thomas Partey’s successor in the shape of Getafe’s Mauro Arambarri.
Arambarri  is expected to cost Atletico £18 million, which would then pave the way for Ghanaian defensive midfielder [Partey] to move to the Emirates.
Partey  has made over 150 appearances for Atletico Madrid since making his debut for Atleti on November 28, 2015 having come on to replace Luciano Vieti in their 1-0 against Espanyol.
