The Real society He is still on a roll and has become one of the great revelations at the European level. Having already qualified several days ago and in European positions in the league, the state of euphoria that the Txuri-Urdin club is experiencing is total. However, Imanol is not enough with the players he has and he wants more reinforcements.
Jokin Aperribay’s board has found a player who was already in our league playing for Arsenal in the Premier League. Now, after barely playing minutes in his current club, the San Sebastián structure seems to be behind him to further strengthen the San Sebastián team if possible.
Thomas Partey will not continue at Arsenal
That player who seeks Real society For his team he is no one more and no one less than Thomas Partey. The former player of Atlético de Madrid, currently at Arsenal, is barely counting for Mikel Arteta, only making 5 appearances this season. These are very few games compared to what he used to play in previous seasons, since he was a fixture in the Gunner starting eleven.
In part, this lack of minutes is due to a series of injuries that have prevented him from competing in the Premier, Cup and Champions League. The first of them took place in the hernia in the month of August, which made him not return until October. Once he returned, several weeks later, he relapsed again; this time, in the thigh, an injury that lasts to this day.
In fact, that injury lasts until December 31 of this year, so his return is expected in 2024. Although it is true that the injuries are largely to blame, the truth is that Mikel Arteta also did so. has left unplayed several times.
Examples of this are the Champions League match against Lens or Chelsea in the Premier League, where he was a substitute. Furthermore, he was not even called up against Sevilla in both games and against Newcastle. This very bad situation means that Arsenal have already agreed to sell Thomas Partey and get money for it.
The Gunners have said ‘enough’ to the situation of a player who has repeated his problems in recent years. For this reason, according to ESPN, Arsenal are considering letting the player leave in the next winter market.
According to Transfermarkt, the player’s value is 35 million euros, although the value could be even lower. Thomas has a contract until June 2025 and a summer operation could be even cheaper in the next summer market.
Real Sociedad shows interest
Given this situation, the Real society has shown interest in having Thomas Partey in the team. Despite having a great midfield like Martín Zubimendi and Mikel Merino, Imanol Alguacil They want someone to compete with them. For that reason, Thomas is a very interesting option, if he manages to be at his best level.
The price, however, could be a mitigating factor that puts back the San Sebastian team, which does not have the budget of other clubs. To this we must add the possible interest of other teams in the player, since the Ghanaian has a good cachet in the market. Several European and Saudi Arabian clubs have been interested in him.
One of them is Juventus, which is seeking to rearm itself in this transitional year that they are having as they are not in European competitions. The second interested team comes from Saudi Arabia and is Al-Ettifaq, which is seventh in the Saudi Pro League. In their squad, they have great players, such as Wijnaldum, Henderson or Gray and Thomas would come to shore up the midfield.
The Real society He is still looking for new players to add to his great squad to compete in the Champions League. The San Sebastian team is on a good streak and believes that the next step to take is the signing of Thomas Partey. We’ll see how it goes.
