Juventus Keen to Sign Arsenal Midfielder

Juventus are reportedly keeping close tabs on Arsenal star Thomas Partey as Massimiliano Allegri looks to overhaul his midfield options in the summer. According to the Daily Cannon, the Italians have added the Ghana international to their list of targets for the upcoming transfer window.

After experiencing an underwhelming first season at the Emirates following his €50m arrival from Atletico Madrid in 2020, Partey has gone from strength to strength this season. The 28-year-old has been Arsenal’s driving force in the engine room, establishing himself as an integral part of Mikel Arteta’s team.

Voted Arsenal’s Player of the Month for February, Partey has gone from a misfit to one of the most consistent performers in north London. The Ghanaian has racked up two goals and one assist from 21 Premier League appearances this season.

Having helped Arsenal pick themselves up from a dreadful start and grow into legitimate top-four candidates, he has earned praise from Arteta. In the build-up to the Gunners’ Premier League meeting with Leicester City, the Spaniard hailed Partey’s recent displays, urging him to carry that form into the business end of the season.

He should be with those contenders because the ability he has is up there with the best in the team. Now he needs to show consistently that he can do that,” Arteta said.

Partey’s eye-catching showings at Arsenal have caught attention from Juventus. Allegri has grown frustrated with Arthur’s inconsistency and Weston McKennie’s proneness to injuries as he looks to add a new midfielder to his star-studded squad. 

Juventus signed Denis Zakaria from Borussia Monchengladbach in the January transfer window, but they have no intention of putting the brakes on their recruiting campaign. After failing to live up to expectations, Arthur could leave Turin in the summer while McKennie’s future hangs in the balance. 

If Juventus manage to get rid of any of the abovementioned fringe players, they could launch a summer assault on Partey. The record-time Serie A champions have also joined the race for Chelsea centre-back Antonio Rudiger.
