Premier League giants Arsenal have informed Thomas Partey that they want to activate his release clause, footballghana.com can exclusively reveal.
Thomas Partey confirmed earlier this month that his agent is in talks with Atletico Madrid regarding a contract extension but Arsenal have informed him that they are willing to activate his 50 million euros release clause if he backs out of the renewal talks.
The Ghanaian midfielder stated a few days ago: "Atletico is my home, the club that gave everything, where I want to be. My agent is talking to the club about the renewal. I hope everything goes well".
Thomas now has to decide on whether he still wants to stay in the club or not. If the renewal falls through, Arsenal will immediately look to activating his release clause so he features for them next season.
Partey has played 36 matches in all competitions for Los Rojiblancos this season and has scored 3 goals.
