The leadership of Atletico Madrid does not intend to negotiate with Arsenal on the sale of midfielder Thomas Partey, reports Fabrizio Romano.
Earlier it was reported that for Arsenal, in addition to Partey, another important transfer goal is Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar.
But in case of Partey, Atletico is not at all ready to let the player go in the current transfer window. Instead, they are counting on him in this season.
Atletico want to rent Lucas Torreira from Arsenal, but Londoners want to sell the Uruguayan on an ongoing basis.
And so, all talks for Partey have been futile.
