“I should quit this club before my career takes a turn for the worse. It’s past time.” “Big clubs like Real Madrid are interested in signing me,” the star of Arsenal unexpectedly said. “By January, I want to join a big European club,” Arteta was asked to release him, and Arsenal was already searching for the perfect replacement.
A £52 million star is expected to sign with Arsenal in January, and the team’s star has begged to leave: report Mikel Arteta’s goal of winning the title will likely cause a change in the midfield.
One of Arsenal’s more seasoned midfielders has requested a transfer, suggesting that the team may be ready to replace one of its biggest stars.
Despite their deficiencies in the middle of the field, Mikel Arteta’s team defeated Sevilla this week in the Champions League. Martin Odegaard, the club captain, is sidelined due to a hip injury, Emile Smith Rowe is sidelined due to a knee injury, and Thomas Partey will be out for the remainder of the campaign.
By January, though, that depth might have dropped considerably more.
The Sun claims that Partey has informed the Gunners that he plans to leave in January.
The upcoming Africa Cup of Nations is another reason why the Ghanaian is expected to miss a portion of the season; however, if Arsenal had already found a replacement, he could have been traded before then.
The Real Sociedad star Martin Zubimendi is reportedly being considered by Bayern Munich, according to 90min.
Ivan Toney is still a top pick for Arteta, but it is believed that Partey’s injury convinced him to give up on acquiring a more offensive player in January.
Martin Zubimendi is valued at €40 million by Transfermarkt, but it looks like he has a €52 million release clause.
