Arsenal supporters react as Liverpool linked with Thomas Partey swap deal

Arsenal have been strongly linked with a move for Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey over the last few months but Liverpool could be about to steal in and sign the Ghanaian – which has prompted reaction from Gunners fans.

The Sun have claimed that Atletico are interested in offering 26-year-old Partey to Liverpool’s rivals Arsenal this summer – in order for Diego Simeone to land a target of his own, in the form of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Partey has caught the attention of plenty of admirers for his performances in the Champions League, which included starring for Simeone’s men in both legs against Liverpool – eventually knocking The Reds out of the competition.

The Ghana international is rated at about £45million, as per the Sun, and he remains a priority for Arsenal. However, the report claims Atletico doubt whether the Gunners can meet such a figure given the current global health crisis.

Whether Liverpool want Partey and would be willing to give up Oxlade-Chamberlain to get the African powerhouse remains to be seen. Liverpool are certainly well stocked in holding midfield, with Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and James Milner.

Arsenal supporters reacted on Twitter to the reported news that Liverpool and Atletico Madrid could engineer a swap between Partey and Oxlade-Chamberlain – and many have offered differing opinions.
