​Spanish giants, ​Atletico Madrid have offered to double midfielder, Thomas Partey’s salary in order to convince the Ghanian to remain with the club amid reports emerging that ​Arsenal are keen to sign him in the summer.

Gunners manager, Mikel Arteta is understood to be keen on signing Partey, with the club said to have made contact with the players agent over the last two months. The 26-year-old has a relatively affordable £43.5million release clause which Arsenal believe that they can afford.

However, as per ​Guardian, Atletico are keen to hold on to their star midfielder and have offered to double Partey’s salary of £65,000-a-week to make him one of the highest earners at the club on £130,000-a-week.

The new deal would remove Partey’s current release clause and also ensure that his new clause would be worth 100m, which would no doubt price Arsenal over a potential move. It remains to be seen though whether the player himself agrees to a new deal, considering that he still has three years left on his current contract with the club.

Partey has impressed all and sundry with his performances and is in his fifth year with Atletico, with the midfielder making 174 appearances so far, while scoring 15 goals.
