English side Arsenal has stumbled on their attempt to sign Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey from Atlético Madrid this summer.

Partey has been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium all summer following his distinctive performance for Atlético Madrid last season.

The 27-year-old has a £45million release clause attached to his contract but the Gunners are yet to meet that figure.

According to a report on Sky Italia, Mikel Arteta’s men are unwilling to pay that amount.

In addition to paying £45 million to sign the midfielder, Arsenal will also have to stump up over £200,000-a-week in wages.

It is likely that the Ghana international will pen a new contract at Atlético Madrid ahead of the forthcoming season.
