Atletico Madrid resigned to losing Arsenal, PSG target Partey

Atletico Madrid accept they're likely to lose Thomas Partey this summer.

The Ghana midfielder's contract carries a €50m buyout clause and is a target for the likes of Arsenal and PSG.

Okdiario says Atletico would like to upgrade Partey's contract and buyout clause - but do not have the available cash to do so.

As such, there's a resignation that Partey is likely to be on the move this summer.

Hoffenheim defender Kasim Nuhu declared last month: "For me, it is his decision because playing for Atletico Madrid is the same as playing for Arsenal

"The two teams always make the same category in the league, fighting for the third and fourth place to play in Champions League.

"But as we all know the Premier League is the best league in the world so if he joins Arsenal I will be happy for him."
