Arsenal fans would seriously like to hope that £75,000-a-week star Torreira (Spotrac) going to Atleti will see the Spanish club perhaps soften their stance over Partey.

The midfielder has now asked the club he would like to leave amid interests from clubs in Italy, Spain and his home country France.

But with Elneny seemingly turning over a new leaf and Granit Xhaka attaining some much-needed consistency, Arsenal seem to edging towards having a balanced midfield in a long time.

Partey also adds strength and power to the midfield and is good defensively when the ball is on the ground as well as in the air.

The goalkeeper will be handed the number 13 shirt as he is billed to become the second-choice goalkeeper after Bernd Leno.

More intact wooden coffins unearthed in Egypt's Saqqara necropolis - Ancient Egypt - Heritage
More than two millennia ago, 27 Egyptians were laid to rest in Saqqara , an ancient city of the dead. The coffins contained the mummified remains of men, women and children.

According to the Express, Arsenal have refused to pay the full value of the 27-year-old's £45m release clause and failed in an attempt to include out-of-favour Matteo Guendouzi in a swap deal earlier in the summer.

The 24-year-old had been expected to seal a move to Torino but the Express says the Serie A outfit have complicated the proposed £22m deal after demanding certain clauses be included in the agreement.

However, Legit.ng earlier reported that the English FA Cup champions are reportedly plotting a £25 million move for Ajax attacker Quincy Promes this summer.

He recorded 16 goals and five assists in 28 appearances before coronavirus forced the league to be abandoned in March.

The Uruguayan isn't in Mikel Arteta's Arsenal plans and has been linked with a move to Los Rojiblancos previously.
