Arsenal fans react as Thomas Partey reportedly set to stay at Atletico Madrid

Arsenal have been handed an early transfer blow as reports claim Thomas Partey is set to sign a new deal with Atletico Madrid.

According to Ghana Soccernet, the midfielder will sign a £130,000-a-week deal with a release clause of £87.2 million.

The 27-year-old was instrumental as Los Rojiblancos knocked Liverpool out of the Champions League and Arsenal were hoping to pounce.

He was viewed as the ideal man to add some steel to Mikel Arteta’s midfield. The Spaniard will now need to go down his list of targets and look elsewhere.

Partey has played 44 games in all competitions during 2019/20, scoring three goals and claiming one assist.

The midfield powerhouse would have been a class signing for the Gunners and it’s fair to say their fans are upset at the news.

Following reports of a new deal for Partey, the Arsenal fanbase took to Twitter. Although disappointed, some are philosophical; appreciating Partey would always be a dream whilst the Gunners remained outside the Champions League.

Here is a selection of tweets from the Gunners supporters as the 26-time Ghana international prepares to stick with his current club.
