Juventus still in pursuit of Thomas Partey

Published on: 07 September 2020

Italian giants Juventus are still looking at the possibility of signing Thomas Partey despite getting Weston McKennie. 

The youngster was signed from Schalke with the intentions of keeping him for the future. Head coach Andrea Pirlo is reportedly fond of Partey and is eager to bring him to Turin.

However, they face competition from Arsenal who per reports have made a bid involving Lacazette and Matteo Guendouzi for Partey.

Also, it has been reported that Juventus do not have enough money to meet the 50 million release clause demanded by Atletico Madrid for Partey. They are preparing to offer Federico Bernardeschi in hope of getting the deal done.

It remains to be seen if an agreement can be reached.
