Juventus will almost certainly not have the services of Paul Pogba this season, when the French star tested positive for doping and faces a ban of up to 4 years. Not only that, with Nicolo Fagioli banned from playing for about 7 months for betting, the line of Italian football teams was almost devastated.
Faced with the current situation, Juve was forced to add more midfielders in January. According to Italian media, besides Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, they also give Arsenal’s Thomas Partey special attention.
The Ghanaian player was linked to the Bianconeri in the summer transfer window. However, Mikel Arteta still decided to keep his student.
But the situation seems to have turned around at the Emirates. As Partey continues to be tormented by injury, Arsenal is gradually finding reasonable solutions to replace the former Atletico Madrid player.
Arteta can use both Declan Rice and Jorginho as anchor midfielders. Rice is already very familiar with this position, and in the case of Jorginho, after a few matches he has not really caught up with the general playing style, the Italian veteran is now contributing more and more to the recovery and rotation stages. move the ball.
In recent matches, Arteta even left Jorginho alone to take on the role of defensive midfielder and asked Rice to participate more in attack.
For that reason, Partey gradually lost his place in the Gunners squad. Now they are willing to part with the Ghanaian star if they receive about 30 million euros.
Therefore, faced with interest from Juventus, the Premier League representative may agree to sit at the negotiating table, even if a loan offer with a buyout clause is made.
However, instead of accepting the above proposal, Arsenal can use Partey as a stepping stone to help them solve the headache in attack.
The Gunners are lacking a quality plan to share the fire with Bukayo Saka. Therefore, it is inevitable that the young British star will have to strain to play and show signs of overload, especially when the EPL representative is aiming to compete for every title.
Therefore, Juve’s move to approach Partey will provide the key to helping the Gunners solve the problem through a swap agreement. The Old Lady will then receive the Ghanaian star plus a fixed fee and for Federico Chiesa to move to the Emirates in the opposite direction.
Chiesa, despite having a history of injuries, is showing impressive form in Serie A this season. After 8 matches, he scored 4 goals and contributed 1 assist.
The Italian player possesses all the necessary qualities for a wing striker. Therefore, The player exchange plan will be reasonable for the situation of both teams.
Furthermore, if Arsenal successfully closes the above deal, they will also indirectly disrupt the transfer plans of competitors in the domestic arena such as Man Utd or Tottenham, with these teams all is aiming for Chiesa.
