Arsenal contemplate Roma midfielder as Thomas Partey replacement
The Gunners are purportedly looking at Roma midfielder Amadou Diawara as an option in contrast to Thomas Partey should they fail to sign the Atletico Madrid star.
Arsenal are reputed to have just had two offers thumped back for Thomas Partey, who Atletico Madrid are declining to sell for anything short of his £45.23m release clause.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta might be compelled to search somewhere else for another holding midfielder and, as indicated by AS Roma Live, the 23-year-old is presently under consideration.
Amadou Diawara joined Roma from Napoli a year ago and has played 21 Serie A games for the Giallorossi this season.
The Gunners are evidently setting up an underlying proposal of £22.62m for Guinea midfielder Amadou Diawara to test Roma’s determination.
In any case, the North London outfit may face a stiff competition from Premier League rivals Leicester City for Amadou Diawara’s signature.
Arsenal needs to sign exciting players ahead of next season.
