Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey is on Juventus’ list of midfield options as contacts have been established with Partey’s entourage to seal a transfer this winter, as per Santi Aouna.
Juventus head coach, Massimiliano Allegri is short of midfield options as Paul Pogba and Nicolò Fagioli are facing lengthy spells out for off-field related issues. Hence, The Old Ladies have identified Partey as an option to help bolster The Bianconeri’s midfield as they set sight on another Scudetto.
Footmercato reports that Juventus’ director, Cristiano Giuntoli, made a trip to England to establish contacts with the entourage of Partey.

The Ghana international has made 83 appearances for Arsenal since his £45m switch from Atletico Madrid in 2020. His niggling injury concerns have seen him miss over 50 games for The Gunners with the most recent being a thigh problem, ruling him out for the rest of the year.
Having made only four Premier League appearances amid his injury concerns, Partey could consider leaving as he is unlikely to return to the first-team fold, with Declan Rice solidifying the defensive midfield position.
Earlier this month, a report from Tuttomercatoweb revealed that Partey Partey has reportedly told Arsenal that he wants to leave the club this winter.
The Bianconeri were keen on the 30-year-old last summer as well as clubs from the Saudi Pro League. With contacts already established, Juventus are set to return with an offer for the midfielder as they are currently short of options.
Juventus currently sit second in Serie A and are in contention for their first Scudetto in four years.
