Juventus are apparently eyeing a move this summer for Thomas Partey as the Arsenal man finally finds his form in London.
Thomas Partey’s time at Arsenal has not gone as well as many would have hoped.
Injuries have seriously disrupted his time in the team, stopping him from achieving the consistency needed to perform at the top level.
Voted Arsenal’s Player of the Month for February, Partey is now looking like the player Arsenal thought they were prising away from Atletico Madrid in 2020.
It is perhaps no surprise, then, that other clubs are interested in him.
One of which is Juventus.
Speaking ahead of Arsenal’s game against Leicester on Sunday, Mikel Arteta was asked about Partey’s recent Player of the Month award and if beating out Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka to the award showed the level the midfielder had now reached.
“Yes, and it shows what he can do,’ Arteta replied.
“And he should be with those contenders because the ability he has is up there with the best in the team. Now he needs to show consistently that he can do that.”
While Granit Xhaka is likely to leave in the summer, there will be no such exit for Partey, whom Arteta sees as an integral part of his plans going forward.
Turning 29 in June, Partey is under contract until 2025.
