Three Saudi Arabian clubs are said to be keen on signing Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey during the summer transfer window.

Three Saudi Arabian sides have shown an interest in signing Arsenal star Thomas Partey, according to recent reports.

There is set to be a midfield shakeup in north London, with left-sided No.8 Granit Xhaka on the verge of being confirmed as a new Bayer Leverkusen player whilst West Ham United captain Declan Rice is being targeted as the Swiss international’s replacement. Now, it appears that holding midfielder Partey could also be on his way out of the Emirates Stadium as both the club and player appear to be open to a departure with the right proposal.

CBS Sports have claimed that Saudi trio Al Nassr, Al Ahli and Al Khaleej are all keen on the Ghana international, who will be into the final two years of his contract with Mikel Arteta’s side come the end of the month. The 30-year-old had enjoyed an excellent 2022/23 campaign before a major drop-off in form coincided with his teammates also faltering as Arsenal relinquished their five-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Eventually, Manchester City clinched the title, finishing five points clear of the Gunners and Partey was dropped for the final few matches. January signing Jorginho took Partey’s place in the starting line-up and the former Atletico Madrid man received considerable criticism for his disappointing end to the season.

“He’s been in a shadow of himself in the last few weeks, Partey,” Manchester United legend Gary Neville told Sky Sports last month. “He has been nowhere near it.

“A large part of the season, he has been fantastic. His form and composure have deserted him at the most vital time.”
