Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey has now joined up with the rest of his teammates in the United States for the pre-season tour.

The Ghanian will be available for Mikel Arteta as his side take on Wayne Rooney’s MLS All-Stars on Thursday morning. The Gunners will then face Manchester United followed by Barcelona in the United States as the players look to build up their match fitness ahead of the start of the new season.

Thomas Partey is one player who has been linked with a move away from Arsenal in recent weeks. Juventus have been after him, as well as clubs from Saudi Arabia. According to the reports, Arsenal would be willing to let the 30-year-old leave, bit only if their £40million valuation is met and they bring in a replacement first.

However it now appears the situation has changed with Arsenal no longer keen on letting the Ghanian leave the club this summer. Arsenal have already secured the signing of Declan Rice, however he is seen as an upgrade on Granit Xhaka  with Mikel Arteta exploring with the idea of playing Partey and Rice together next season.

Thomas Partey’s current Arsenal contract runs until 2025 and after helping the club return to the Champions League, it’s though the player is determined to stay in North London and help the Gunners achieve their goals next season.

With Thomas Partey likely to be staying, Arsenal will have to look at raising funds elsewhere with the likes of Sambi Albert Lokonga, Nicolas Pepe, Folarin Balogun, Cedric and more expected to leave the club before the end of the summer transfer window.
