Arsenal receive Thomas Partey transfer boost after Atletico agree Lucas Torreira terms | Football | Sport
Atletico Madrid have reportedly agreed personal terms with Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira as they want the 24-year-old to replace Thomas Partey should he leave this summer.
Arsenal have made Partey their number one transfer target but they first have to offload some fringe players to raise funds for the Ghana international.
Atletico will not let Partey leave for any less than his £45million release clause.
Negotiations for both players are expected to take place separately.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Torreira has agree to move to the Spanish capital.
However, Atletico must now agree a fee or loan terms with the Gunners.
“I thought it was a game where we were going to attack the spaces and the way they defended, we wanted to create some situations with Dani there but if we can strengthen the team then we’re going to try and do that.
“Until the market is gone, everything is still open.
“Depending on what happens with some other players… as I say again, we are open to discussions, the market can surprise us.”
