Arsenal shopping in LaLiga for new midfield addition

Arsenal are shopping in the LaLiga for a new midfield signing.

La Razon says Arsenal are 'close' to signing Atletico Madrid's sought-after talent Thomas Partey.

The Ghana international, 27, is contracted at the Wanda Metropolitano until 2023 but will ONLY leave this summer if his £47million release clause is triggered.

And the north London side are tracking three more La Liga prospects in addition to Partey.

Levante midfielder Enis Bardhi is one of those prospects.

Marc Roca is also on Arteta's radar and could be snapped up for well below his £36.4m valuation if Espanyol's probable relegation is confirmed.

And finally Valencia's Carlos Soler is being monitored. The 23-year-old has been linked with champions Liverpool in recent months.

But Arsenal could capitalise on Valencia's need to 'balance the books' by bypassing his £136m release clause.
