Arteta to invest on Partey replacement

Arsenal are likely to prioritise the midfield department in January following a thigh operation for Thomas Partey.

The Ghana international has been a mainstay for the Gunners when fit and he has been a huge miss over recent games.

Mikel Arteta recently said that he could be out for a few weeks, but it appears that the setback is serious than predicted.

The midfielder has recently undergone a thigh surgery and this is expected to keep him out from first-team duties until 2024.

There is no guarantee that he will be fit and running at the turn of the year and Arsenal are likely to pursue a replacement.

There are no stand-out targets at the present point of time, but Andre could be an option for the Gunners for the next window.

The Brazilian is one of the best young defensive midfielders around and Fluminense are open to a winter transfer deal.

Liverpool have also been linked with him, but they are unlikely to make an approach midway through the current season.
