​Arsenal eyeing Espanyol midfielder Marc Roca as Partey alternative

Arsenal are eyeing a move for Espanyol midfielder Marc Roca.

The Spanish club have been relegated to the Segunda, and Roca is not willing to stay in the second division.

Mundo Deportivo says Arsenal's primary target is Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid.

But financial issues mean the deal may not be possible.

And Roca is viewed as a cut price alternative, as he is available for roughly €20 million.

It would be a fee that is less than half what Atletico want for Partey.
