Inter face competition from Arsenal for Atletico Madrid central midfielder Thomas Partey according to a report from the online edition of Spanish news outlet Mundo Deportivo.

Arsenal have been courting the Ghanaian national team player for a long time but currently do not have the money available to them to meet Atletico Madrid’s €50 million asking price, which is the same value as his release clause.

Despite the difficulties they have to overcome to sign him, Arsenal are not giving up hope of signing him. Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is a big fan of him and they have placed half a dozen players up for sale in a bid to raise the neccessary funds.

Inter have also taken an interest in signing Thomas due to how complicated it would be for them to sign Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante.

Atletico Madrid have made it clear that his release clause must be triggered but Inter are considering offer Ivan Perisic as part of a deal. Diego Simeone likes the Croatian, even if he is 31-years-old.

If a team arrives with an offer matching Thomas’ release clause only then would Atletico Madrid take a possible departure into consideration.
