Arsenal midfielder prefers move to Juventus?
Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey reportedly has the preference to join Juventus amid interest from Saudi Arabia.
The Ghana international has two years left on his current deal and the Gunners are open to sanctioning his exit.
A trio of Saudi clubs are prepared to offer £34m for his services while Juventus could only pay around £15m for him.
Partey has the preference to move to the Italian top-flight with the Bianconeri, but they may have to up their offer this summer.
The Gunners are already planning to sell Granit Xhaka on the cheap. He has a verbal agreement to move to Bayer Leverkusen.
With this in mind, the club are unlikely to consider Partey's exit for a knockout price and may only sell him for the right fee.
If Juventus don't make a sizeable offer, there is a possibility that Arsenal may decide to keep Partey for another campaign.
In that case, the Gunners could decide against a move for Romeo Lavia. He has been identified as a potential replacement for Partey.
