Arsenal star’s January move could be in trouble after injury blow

Since the beginning of the current campaign, rumours have been swirling about the possibility of Thomas Partey leaving Arsenal for a club other than the Gunners.

According to a report by Football Insider, the latest ailment that he has picked up could complicate his hopes of making a move in the winter. This information comes from the report.

Following a fruitful time spent at Atletico Madrid, Partey made the move to Arsenal in the summer of 2020. Mikel Arteta’s team has relied heavily on the midfielder who is now 30 years old over the course of the coach’s tenure. He was a starter up to the very end of the previous season.

After that, however, a significant amount of upheaval occurred since the Gunners made the club record purchase of Declan Rice during the summer months. The arrival of the England international sparked a significant amount of discussion on the future of the defensive midfielder who is 30 years old.

Although Partey did play for the north London team in its early games, he did not see much action in his normal position and did not get much playing time overall. The Ghanaian international was deployed on the right side of the defence.

It was anticipated that the midfielder, who had previously played for Atletico Madrid, would be moving clubs during the winter transfer window. Additionally, there is a significant amount of demand for his services. But his new injury might make it impossible for him to leave in January.

As a result of surgery performed on a major thigh injury, it is anticipated that Partey will be sidelined for a considerable amount of time. Because it is anticipated that the 30-year-old would be out for some time, clubs might not make a move to acquire his services.

If Arsenal are unable to make a profit off of him, then they may not be in a position to sign a promising young defensive midfielder. There has been speculation that the Gunners are interested in acquiring Douglas Luiz and Martin Zubimendi, but before any of these transfers can be finalised, it is imperative that Partey be released from his contract.
