Thomas Partey knows he could lose his starting place at Arsenal, and if that happens, the player is ready to leave the Emirates. The midfielder is currently out of action due to an injury. According to prestige Football Insider, Partey could be sidelined for more than 1 month and this will put his positions in the starting line-up at risk.
The Ghanaian started the new season in a somewhat unfamiliar position for him, as right back. This came as a result of the arrival of Declan Rice, who plays in Partey's preferred position, as a defensive midfielder. Meanwhile, since Partey's injury, Ben White has been activated at right-back, and the Ghanaian now fears that when he returns from injury, his role as Arsenal's absolute starter could be in jeopardy.
If that happens, Partey is willing to consider a move away in the January transfer window. But what could be the player's next destination? English media have linked the midfielder with a move to Juventus, who are believed to be interested in the Arsenal player's services.
Italian coach Maximilliano Allegri is in even greater need of options in midfield now that Paul Pogba was suspended for breaking anti-doping rules. Partey seems a good enough alternative to fill Juventus' gap in the midfield. The player has developed solid performances with Arsenal, since 2020 when he joined the Londoners from Atletico Madrid, for the figure of 45 million pounds. The defensive midfielder has played 103 games for Arsenal, scoring 5 goals. The only question mark over him is the injuries, as according to Transfermarket, since his transfer to the Premier League, Partey has not been activated in 45 matches with the club and the national team due to injuries.
