Arsenal have reportedly made an offer for Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Teye Partey of €50m, with negotiations underway between the two clubs.
The 26-year-old has emerged as one of the best central-midfielders in Europe and the Gunners are hoping to bring him to the Premier League.
According to the report, Thomas Partey has agreed to personal terms with the London based club with negotiations underway.
Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta sees Partey as the ideal man to protect his back four as he plots to add some steel to his squad.
Partey currently has a £45million release clause in his contract with his deal expiring in 2023 but Atletico have reportedly offered him a new deal on around £79k-a-week until 2025 to ward off Premier League suitors.
Partey's stellar performance against Liverpool in the Champions League Round of 16 has seen him on the radar of most European clubs.
Manchester United, Inter Milan and Arsenal have been linked to the Ghanaian International this summer.
