Thomas Partey will reportedly receive over £200,000-a-week in wages if he eventually joins Arsenal.
This was revealed by renowned sports journalist David Ornstein.
Arsenal are very much interested in the Ghanaian midfielder, but are yet to trigger Partey’s €50 million release clause from Atletico Madrid.
The 27-year-old is considered as Arsenal’s main midfield target and the club believe he could help improve their squad.
Reports in July suggested that Arsenal offered €25 million in addition to Matteo Guendouzi, to Atletico Madrid for Partey.
Atletico, however, have indicated that they are not going to sell Partey for less than €50 million.
According to Ornstein, the Spanish club have reportedly batted away talk of potential swap deals from Arsenal, involving Guendouzi and Alexandre Lacazette.
Thomas Partey, whose Atletico contract runs until 2023, scored 3 goals in 35 appearances for Atletico Madrid in the 2019/20 La Liga season.
He joined Atletico Madrid back in 2015, and was instrumental as the Madrid side won the UEFA Europa League back in 2018.
