Thomas Partey may be let go by Arsenal in the upcoming transfer market, according to Chris Wheatley, a UK journalist, because of his patchy performance and recent injuries.
Partey has been praised for his outstanding play at the beginning of the season, placing him among the best midfielders now fighting in the English top division together with Casemiro of Manchester United.
The midfielder, however, has struggled to maintain his prior calibre of play in recent weeks, which has caused him to lose his starting spot and the team’s hopes of winning the title.
Wheatley has suggested that the player’s tenure with the team may be coming to an end because of his advanced age and past performances.
“Well we’ve spoken a lot about the midfield area, that is certainly an area Arsenal will want to strengthen, the futures of Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka are a little bit uncertain, Xhaka has been linked back to Germany, Partey, his form has been under pressure in the past few weeks, that’s why Jorginho has come in,” Wheatley revealed to National World YouTube channel
“A few Arsenal fans have suggested Partey could be on his way out, I’ve not heard that line yet, but he is in his late 20s. Arsenal will need to let one midfielder go this summer, it could be Xhaka and it could be Partey,” he added.
