Thomas Partey might join Juventus, following in the footsteps of his fellow countrymen Stephen Appiah and Kwadwo Asamoah. According to Italian media reports, the Ghanaian midfielder has given his approval for a potential transfer to the Italian Serie A club, while the midfielder for Arsenal is anticipated to reject Saudi Arabian offers.

Sky Sport Italia reports that Partey’s entourage has achieved a personal arrangement with the Turin club.

Juventus had expressed interest in signing the Ghanaian international two years prior, but were unable to proceed with a signing because of the hefty asking price.

With Arsenal ready to let Partey leave this summer rather than risk losing him when his contract ends in June 2024, a deal is now seen as being more likely.

According to Juventus, a sum of between €18 and €20 million (£15 and £17 million) might be sufficient to sign a player who manager Massimiliano Allegri adores.

Due to Partey’s versatility as a 30-year-old defensive midfielder, Allegri has been searching for a player in this category for some time.

At Arsenal, he has played as a two-man midfielder in a 4-2-3-1 formation as well as a three-man in a 4-3-3.

Allegri is of the opinion that Partey would enable Paul Pogba to play more forward and connect with Juventus’ strikers.

Partey has reportedly been given a three-year deal by Juventus, according to Sky Sports, and the midfielder is open to moving to Italy following stints in both England and Spain.

Partey is anticipated to decline offers from Saudi Pro League teams because he wants to stay in a tough European league, according to SportMediaset.

The Ghanaian captain left Atletico Madrid in October 2020 after spending five years with the La Liga team and making 188 appearances.

Partey has played 99 times for Arsenal, contributing four assists and five goals.

Ghanaian superstar Appiah played for Juventus from 2003 to 2005, and in the 2004–05 campaign, the Turin team and he shared the Serie A championship. In contrast, Asamoah had a more prosperous six-season run with the “Old Lady” of Italian football, winning three Supercoppa Italiana championships, four Coppa Italia championships, and five Serie A championships between 2012 and 2018.
