Arsenal in line for incredible profit after settling on next move for one of Arteta’s best players 

Arsenal have genuine hope of turning a profit on an expensive signing after a report revealed where the player’s future is likely to lay.

The Gunners ran Man City close this season, though ultimately fell short when it mattered most down the stretch. A whole host of Arsenal stars faltered during a disastrous nine-game span to end the season. Among the biggest offenders in that regard was holding midfielder, Thomas Partey.

The 30-year-old had been in irresistible form for two thirds of the campaign, though could not maintain his sky high standards all the way through.

Central midfield is an area Arsenal are seeking to revamp this summer. West Ham’s Declan Rice is the priority target, while a second arrival is wanted in the form of Moises Caicedo or Ilkay Gundogan.

To make room, Granit Xhaka will return to Germany upon joining Bayer Leverkusen. Xhaka’s £13m move is already agreed, with just the final sign off from Arsenal awaiting once a replacement arrives in north London.

Elsewhere, numerous outlets and sources have all reported Thomas Partey too could leave.

The Telegraph and Fabrizio Romano are among them, though the story has now been taken on a step further by online outlet 90min.

Partey heading to Saudi Arabia? Arsenal eyeing £45m-plus

They confirm Arsenal are ‘open to letting the 30-year-old go’, before claiming a move to Saudi Arabia is the likeliest outcome.

Which club he could join isn’t speculated at in the piece, though it’s likely to be one of four. Indeed, Al Nassr, Al Ahli, Al Hilal and Al Ittihad are the quartet currently making waves in the market after being overtaken by the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund.

It’s claimed Arsenal would prefer an outright sale as opposed to a loan for obvious reasons – the primary one being they’d free up both cash and space on the wage bill right here and now.

What’s more, it’s even remarkably claimed Arsenal could actually turn a profit on Partey despite the player being the wrong side of 30.

Partey was a £45m signing from Atletico Madrid when aged 27 back in 2020. 90min add Arsenal are hopeful they can capitalise on the Saudi riches and command an even greater sum.

Making a profit on a player aged 30-plus would represent incredible business for the Gunners. Indeed, if a European team were bidding for Partey, for example, it’s highly unlikely they’d receive bids in excess of £45m.
