Torreira to be loaned out to Atletico Madrid; Partey to stay

Reports last week suggested that personal terms had been agreed between Atletico Madrid and Lucas Torreira over a move over to the Wanda Metropolitano. 

Longstanding rumours suggested that Thomas Partey was on the verge of leaving Atletico Madrid. Arsenal was the most heavily touted destination.

However, transfer insider Fabrizio Romano has made it clear that Partey was never a makeweight for a deal involving the Uruguayan midfielder.

Torreira was supposedly in talks to move the other way on a permanent deal, but only a loan deal has been struck between the two clubs. 

Despite targeting Houssem Aouar of Lyon to bolster their options in midfield, the Gunners have been unable to match the 50 million euros valuation of the midfielder. The departure of Torreira will leave Arsenal needing options for depth in the squad to compete in the Europa League once again.

Torreira is not in the plans of manager Mikel Arteta for the upcoming season. With the transfer window set to slam shut on Monday at 5 pm, it seems likely that the Uruguayan will end up leaving the Emirates Stadium well in time.

On the other hand, the Atletico Madrid board were convinced that Thomas Partey would stay at the Spanish capital for the 20/21 season at the very least.

Arsenal had reportedly made multiple bids for the winger, but never managed to meet the release clause that Atletico Madrid were holding out for. Simeone and co. are convinced that Partey will still be a Madrid player when the transfer window closes on 5th October, Monday.

With only 48 hours left for transfers to be completed, Arsenal must hurry should they want either one of Houssem Aouar or Thomas Partey to improve their squad for the 20/21 season.
