The transfer market will probably be very different this Summer as clubs operate in a much more sensible manner, so it means deals could be even more drawn out than usual.
The primary issue will be replacing anyone who leaves, as it’s yet to become clear if certain teams will just try to keep their squads together or if some might look to cash in on their best footballers.
Thomas Partey is a name that’s come up a lot recently with the London giants, as linking him with a move in recent days. The latest with Ghana international and this might be good news for Arsenal.
They do point out that La Liga giants’ main aim is to keep Thomas and to get him to sign a new deal, but they are aware that this might not be possible, and the reports suggest he may move to the Premier League this Summer.
As a result, Diego Simeone has identified two footballers who could replace Partey Napoli midfielder Allan and Getafe’s Mauro Arambarri.
Both footballers have proven quality and could go straight into the Los Rojiblancos side, so it shows that they are preparing for the situation where thee 26-year-old midfielder would move on.
Time will tell if this is a clear sign that a transfer will happen if the club are simply being smart and being prepared, but it does sound look good news for the Gunners.
