Arsenal are reportedly set to withdraw from the race to sign Thomas Partey.

According to Sport via Daily Express, the Gunners have given up on hopes of bringing the Ghana international to North London.

Partey has been heavily linked with a move to Emirates Stadium and Arsenal are eager to buy the midfielder, but Atletico Madrid aren’t willing to accept anything less than his £45million release clause.

As a result, Arsenal have deemed Partey too pricey for the current moment in time.

The 27-year-old has established himself as an important part of Diego Simeone’s team over the last year and made 46 appearances across all competitions for the LaLiga club in the 2019/20 season.

He joined the Madrid giants’ youth academy eight years ago and is still contracted to the club until 2023.

Partey has scored nine goals in 26 appearances for the Black Stars.
