In a Q&A with Sky Sports, Di Marzio said:

 “Arsenal want him a lot. Every Atletico Madrid player is in the market. So, it depends a lot on the offer. Atletico are open to selling every player if the offer is good.

“It also depends on budget – how much Arsenal can afford? And how much Atletico want?

“Atletico will want money, so it is difficult to see them doing a deal involving other players as part of it.

“They are very smart when it comes to doing deals and it will not be a surprise if Thomas Partey was to stay.

“He is young, he is not like Diego Costa, and they can sell him next year if they want or even in two years’ time. So, they are in control.”

Arsenal are currently ninth in the Premier League. However, they have shown an upward move in their performance this year and the fans would hope that the side improve even further as they chase a return to summit of European football; Champions League.
