Inter are interested in Arsenal target Thomas Partey, according to reports in Italy.

The 27-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal this summer, but are struggling to trigger the player’s £45million release clause despite needing midfield reinforcements.

With Matteo Guendouzi still frozen out, Lucas Torreira’s future in doubt and being linked with a move back to Italy and Dani Ceballos returning to Real Madrid following his successful spell last season, lack of midfield options were apparent when Mohamed Elneny was a shock starter in Arsenal’s Community Shield triumph against Liverpool having spent the last campaign out on loan to Besiktas.

However, Arsenal may not have a clear path of signing Partey as Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport now claim Inter boss is keeping tabs on the Atletico Madrid enforcer as a possible replacement for Brozovic, who are interested in.

With Arteta likely to show a few the door this summer, the Spaniard will be able to stump up the cash required to land Partey – the type of player they crave in midfield.
