Arsenal will only consider selling Thomas Partey this summer should they receive a suitable offer.

The Ghana international, who is set to join up late with the rest of the first team squad who are already in America for their pre-season tour, was an influential part of a side that finished as runners-up to Manchester City last term.

Partey’s form and fitness, however, deteriorated during the closing weeks of the campaign and nagging doubts over his durability are likely to see him demoted in Mikel Arteta’s pecking order.

The arrivals of Declan Rice and Kai Haverzt will help accelerate Mikel Arteta’s plans to rejuvenate his midfield engine room which has also lost Granit Xhaka following his transfer to Bayer Leverkusen.

Partey has attracted interest from teams in the Saudi Pro League but would, if he is forced to leave Arsenal, would prefer to continue his career in Europe where Juventus are keen to test the waters.

According to the Daily Mail, however, Arsenal are in no rush to sell Partey and would only countenance his sale if a fee of £40million is offered.

Although the Gunners have spent heavily already this summer, they are prepared to invest further in their squad with Southampton’s Romeo Lavia and Ajax’s Mohammed Kudus firmly on their radar.

Arsenal, meanwhile, beat the MLS All-Stars 5-0 on Wednesday evening with Rice coming on as a second half substitute to make his debut.
