Contrary to recent reports, Fabrizio Romano confirmed that Juventus currently has no plans to recruit Thomas Partey in the winter transfer window. At the same time, Romano also confirmed that coach Mikel Arteta still sees Partey as a key factor in his plan.
The Italian journalist revealed:
“Juventus was interested in Thomas Partey last summer, but then Arsenal decided to keep him.”
“I don’t expect big changes for Partey in January. I know, Juventus wants to have another attacking player in midfield rather than Partey.”
“And at the same time, Mikel Arteta still sees Partey as an important player, despite recent reports from the Italian media that the Ghana international may want to leave.”
Currently, Partey is still out due to injury, and it is expected that he will not be able to participate in all of Arsenal’s remaining matches in 2023. This season, the former Atletico Madrid star has only played 5 times. playing in all competitions, it would be quite surprising if Juventus really wanted a “sick soldier” like Partey.
