Arsenal are planning to officially submit a bid for Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey.
Partey remains a top target for the Gunners who are yet to confirm their interest.
Reports in England indicate the English side leads a list of interested European sides who are all willing to sign the 26-year-old.
The midfielder is currently valued at €50milion, an amount the former English Champions will be willing to pay.
Mikel Arteta is believed to be a big fan of the Atletico Madrid star.
An officially bid is now in the pipeline for the player after several speculations about his transfer to England.
