Thomas Partey: Arsenal expected to pay £45m release clause for Atletico Madrid midfielder

Partey has been linked with Arsenal throughout the window and, although his £45m release clause has been an issue, the Gunners are hoping to free up wages and space in the squad before the window shuts at 11pm.

Matteo Guendouzi is on the verge of joining Hertha Berlin on loan, Lucas Torreira is set to sign for Atletico Madrid on loan, Bayer Leverkusen remain in talks over Sead Kolasinac while the Gunners are listening to offers for Sokratis Papastathopoulos. They have not received any bids for Mesut Ozil, despite Mikel Arteta casting doubts over his future.

Arteta said at the weekend Arsenal were doing what they can to finalise transfers ahead of the deadline - and was confident deals can be done - while Sky Sports News reporter Dharmesh Sheth has confirmed that a Deadline Day move is on the cards.

"Look, throughout this whole transfer window we know that Arsenal have been after a midfielder," he said on Monday. "The one that never went away was Thomas Partey.
