Atlético Madrid have confirmed that Arsenal FC have met Thomas Partey’s  €50 million release clause.

The club released a statement on their official website:

“Arsenal representatives have paid Thomas Partey’s release clause on behalf of the player.

LaLiga informed Atlético de Madrid at 11.28pm on Monday that Arsenal representatives have paid Thomas Partey’s release clause at the sports association’s headquarters.

The player has therefore unilaterally terminated his contract with our club, which ran until June 30, 2023”

This means that the Ghanaian international is officially no longer a Atlético Madrid player and has completed a transfer to the Emirates Stadium.

An official announcement by the Gunners is to be expected any time soon.
