Fussball Server rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Premier League on Wednesday, September 2.
Wednesday morning’s Premier League transfer talk news roundup:
Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey ‘wants Arsenal move’
Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey is reportedly open to a move to Arsenal amid persistent speculation linking him with a move to the Emirates.
The Gunners have been tipped to move for Partey for several months now, with his release clause at Atletico believed to be set at £44m, but Arsenal are severely cash-strapped in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
Mikel Arteta is understood to be desperate to get a deal for Partey over the line, but the Gunners boss will reportedly have to do away with at least three players in order to raise the required funds.
However, there may now be an extra motivation for the Gunners to trim their wage bill, with Goal reporting that Partey is indeed keen on making the switch to North London.
Atletico have not been immune from the implications of the COVID-19 crisis, and the report claims that Partey is open to a departure after the La Liga outfit could not offer him a bumper new contract.
Partey has amassed 16 goals from 185 games at Atletico across all competitions, where he is under contract until 2023.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘demands three more signings after Donny van de Beek’
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly determined to further strengthen Manchester United’s squad with three more signings once a deal for Donny van de Beek is concluded.
The Red Devils are expected to confirm the arrival of Ajax ace Van de Beek in the coming days in a transfer worth around £40m.
After bolstering his midfield options, The Times claims that Solskjaer will then turn focus to bringing in players in three other troublesome positions.
A new centre-back is said to have been targeted before the transfer window shuts on October 5, as well as a right winger and a striker.
However, United will first have to move on some first-team players, with Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira being linked with the Old Trafford exit in recent weeks.
Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho is widely considered to be Solskjaer’s primary target, but the Bundesliga club are refusing to budge on their £108m valuation.
