Arsenal looking to sell star midfielder to sign Spanish star

Thomas Partey's position at Emirates has dropped this season

In a strategic move aimed at strengthening their midfield, Arsenal Football Club is reportedly planning to offload Thomas Partey this summer. The funds generated from this transfer will be used to sign Real Sociedad midfielder, Martin Zubimendi.

Zubimendi has been on the radar of Gunners' manager Mikel Arteta for quite some time now. Despite his reluctance to leave Sociedad, it is anticipated that he might be ready for a new challenge in the upcoming summer.

The Spanish midfielder played a crucial role in helping La Liga outfit finish among the top four last season and expressed his desire to play Champions League football with them. However, despite Sociedad's impressive performance across all competitions, there are strong indications that Zubimendi may consider moving on.

Martin Zubimendi will be an upgrade to Thomas Partey

To facilitate this high-profile signing, Arsenal plans on offloading Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey. This decision comes as part of an effort by the club to recoup some funds necessary for securing Zubimendi’s services.

Partey has recently attracted interest from major clubs like Barcelona and Juventus but reports suggest that he is more likely headed towards Saudi Arabia. Several Saudi Pro League clubs have shown interest in him during last summer and Arsenal remains hopeful about securing a reasonable transfer fee from these potential suitors.

Everything depends on Thomas Partey’s transfer

This strategic move could potentially benefit both parties involved - while Gunners gets their long-term target in form of Martin Zubimendi, they also manage to secure substantial funds through Partey’s transfer which can be reinvested into further strengthening their squad.

However, only time will tell if these changes will pay off and help improve Arsenal's performance on the field or not.

For sports fans and sports betting enthusiasts alike, these developments present exciting opportunities and scenarios to look forward to in the upcoming football season.
