Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey is holding out for a move to Juventus amid interest from Saudi Arabian clubs.

The Gunners are currently open to parting ways with the Ghanaian. His current deal expires in two years' time.

A number of Saudi teams are willing to pay €30m for him, but Partey appears reluctant to move to the Middle East.

The 30-year-old wants to continue in Europe next term, and CBS Sports claim that Juventus are the front-runners for him.

The Bianconeri are planning to reinforce their midfield options for next term and they have identified Partey as a top target.

As things stand, they only value him at around €20m. It is highly unlikely that Arsenal will accept such a proposal for Partey.

The north London giants recently sold Granit Xhaka to Bayer Leverkusen for €25m and that could be a minimum for Partey.

It remains to be seen whether the Bianconeri will meet their demands. Other clubs could enter the race in the coming weeks.
