“It’s past time for me to leave this club before my career deteriorates.” “Big clubs like Real Madrid are interested in signing me”- Arsenal star has surprisingly asked Mikel Arteta to release him and allow him to join a Big European club by January- Arsenal is already hunting for an ideal replacement by January.
Arsenal’s star has begged to go, with a £52 million ace set to arrive in January: report
Arsenal’s midfield is poised to change as Mikel Arteta targets a title challenge.
Arsenal may be about to replace one of its biggest stars, with one of their more experienced midfielders requesting a transfer.
Mikel Arteta’s team won again this week in the Champions League against Sevilla, although they are lacking in the center of the field. Club captain Martin Odegaard is out with a hip injury, Emile Smith Rowe is out with a knee injury, and Thomas Partey is out for the rest of the season.
However, that depth may be decreased much further by January.
Partey has told the Gunners that he wants to depart in January, according to The Sun.
The Ghanaian is also likely to miss a section of the season due to the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations, but he could have been moved on before then if Arsenal had already settled on a replacement.
According to 90min, Real Sociedad superstar Martin Zubimendi is on the radar, with Bayern Munich apparently interested.
Partey’s injury is thought to have persuaded Arteta to abandon his pursuit of a more attacking acquisition in January, despite the fact that Ivan Toney remains high on his wishlist.
Transfermarkt values Martin Zubimendi at €40 million, but he apparently has a €52 million release clause.
