The Spaniards are reported to have requested to have the services of the Arsenal man on loan something that has been turned down.
“The new meeting between Atlético and Lucas Torreira agent has been positive. The agreement with Arsenal is close on loan with buy option, but Atléti want to sell Hector Herrera before completing Torreira deal with AFC. Atléti still convinced that Thomas Partey will stay.” Said Fabrizio Romano.
The news comes at a time when the Gunners are in need of Thomas Partey’s services with the Spaniards positive that he will stay.
An initial bid of 45 million pounds has already been presented which was yet to be accepted.
