According to Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal are not looking to extend Thomas Partey’s contract and will allow the midfielder to leave the club this summer should a suitable offer be made.

Clubs in Italy have been tipped to make a move for the Ghana international whose current contract at Emirates Stadium runs until 2025.

Partey was recruited from Atletico Madrid for £50 million in October 2020 and he’s been an important part of Mikel Arteta’s rebuild.

To date, he’s made 99 appearances although hamstring injuries hampered him in his first two years. He produced his best form between August and Christmas last season but struggled in the closing months and was increasingly rotated out of the side in favour of January signing Jorginho.

Arsenal have lined up Declan Rice and Romeo Lavia to bolster the ranks in midfield. The Gunners have already had one bid for the West Ham captain rejected but still feel confident of getting their number one target.
