Three PL clubs consider move for Atletico midfielder – report

Thomas Partey

Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey is the subject of interest from three Premier League sides, according to reports.

Partey, who has been on international duty with Ghana at the African Cup of Nations, has failed to make a league start so far this season for the La Liga side.

Spanish newspaper AS claims that Atletico would be happy to let the midfielder go in the summer with the 23-year-old having a release clause of just over £20million written into his contract.

In total, Partey has managed 242 minutes on the pitch this campaign but the club didn’t want to let the player go in Janaury with the transfer embargo in place at Atletico.

West Ham, Middlesbrough and Watford are thought to be amongst the favourites to sign the Ghana international with all three sides hoping for midfield reinforcements in the next transfer window.
