Atlético Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey has agreed personal terms with Arsenal ahead of a summer move to the Emirates Stadium, according to latest reports.

The Ghanaian international is one of the hottest commodities in Europe with a host of clubs including Manchester United, PSG and Bayern Munich all linked.

FootballMadeInGhana understands that Arsenal now believe they have won the race for his signature, with ‘almost every detail of the move’ already agreed.

But Money, as you’d expect, is the major sticking point in getting a transfer over the line.

And one rather large obstacle remains: the Gunners still need to agree a fee with Atlético Madrid, who are holding out for the full payment of his £44.5 million release clause.
