Arsenal are confident that the £53m midfielder, who is considered ‘special’, could potentially fill the void left by Thomas Partey, according to a journalist…



Journalist: “Big admirer”: Arsenal thinks a “special” £53 million midfield player may take Thomas Partey’s spot.


Arsenal holds a strong admiration for their £53m midfielder, considering him as a potential replacement for Thomas Partey, according to a journalist. The club views this midfielder as ‘special’ and believes he has the capability to fill the void left by Partey.


Martin Zubimendi, a midfielder for Real Sociedad, is thought by Arsenal to be the likely candidate to succeed Thomas Partey this summer.


Charles Watts, a writer offering an update on Arsenal’s attempts to strengthen their midfield alternatives, claims that.



After a protracted absence on the pitch, Thomas Partey has returned and is playing for Sheffield United and Brentford at home.


Due to injury, the 30-year-old has only made seven appearances across all competitions this season, and it looks like his time at Arsenal is running out.


In fact, rumors that Partey might leave if Jorginho signs a new contract have already surfaced.


And following yet another injury-plagued season, Arsenal may consider looking to Martin Zubimendi to take the Ghanaian’s place.


In an interview with CaughtOffside, Watts stated that many at Arsenal think Zubimendi has the potential to take Partey’s place in the midfield.


However, given competitor interest and uncertainties surrounding the “special” midfielder’s motivation to leave Sociedad, it will be challenging for the Gunners to complete the deal.


The journalist stated, “If that were to happen [Partey leaving], then they would have to replace him, and they think Martin Zubimendi is a player who can play the Partey role.”


Michael Arteta is a great fan of Spain international Zubimendi and is familiar with him, but it’s unclear if the player genuinely wants to leave Real Sociedad.


The 25-year-old is anticipated to draw significant attention from rivals, so closing the deal might not be simple.


Arsenal has been keeping a close eye on Zubimendi for some time, and it’s obvious that Arteta thinks highly of the 25-year-old. In fact, Fabrizio Romano recently asserted that the manager of the Gunners is a major Zubimendi fan.


The Spanish midfielder is still having a great season in La Liga, tallying four goals and one assist from midfield this year.


Even though Partey has played an excellent role for Arteta over the last four years, it seems appropriate to replace him at this point.


The Ghanaian international has battled recurrent injuries, and his value to Arteta’s team has diminished since Declan Rice arrived.


According to reports, Zubimendi’s contract includes a £53 million release clause this summer, which would make negotiating with Sociedad simple for
