Arsenal makes a last-minute bid to sign Atletico Madrid’s midfielder Thomas Partey on Deadline day by triggering a £45m release clause.
Arsenal has been tracking the Ghana international star all summer but has failed to land a deal for him.
Atletico wants the midfielder’s release clause of £45m paid in full, but as of Monday morning, they had received no guarantees from the Gunners that they would.
Arsenal has returned late and ready to pay the fee needed to bring Partey to north London.
Better late than never.
