Atletico Madrid plotting to re-sign Thomas Partey from Arsenal?

Arsenal star, Thomas Partey

Arsenal midfielder, Thomas Partey, could be heading back to Atletico Madrid according to reports.

The Ghana midfielder joined the Premier League giants from the La Liga side last summer.

The Gunners triggered Partey’s €50m release clause on the transfer deadline day.

However, the 27-year-old’s journey at the club has been soiled with injuries since switching to the Emirates.

A report by Todofichajes says Diego Simeone is planning to launch a two-prong attack on Arsenal with Real Madrid loanee, Dani Caballos, the other player on his radar.

Partey has managed just 20 league appearances, starting 15 of them this season but without a goal, and sources have also claimed that the midfielder could be making a return to his former club, Atletico.

Partey was in action on Thursday as Arsenal failed to progress to the finals of the Europa League against Villarreal.

Andre Ayew has expressed his gratitude to English Championship side Swansea City as the Ghana international leaves the club.

Ayew leaves the Liberty Stadium despite ending the previous two seasons under Steve Cooper as Swansea’s top scorer.

He was unable to produce the moment of magic Swansea City required as they were beaten by Brentford in the Championship play-off final.

The 31-year-old has scored 35 goals in 106 appearances since rejoining Swansea from West Ham for an initial £18m in January 2018.

Ayew originally joined Swansea on a free transfer from Marseille back in 2015 scoring 12 goals in 35 appearances in the Premier League, before joining West Ham for £20.5m a season later.

The forward has been linked with a return to Turkish giants Fenerbahce in the ongoing transfer market.

He has also been reported to be closing in on a move to re-unite with Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds United.

There were doubts over Wednesday night’s Euro 2020 clash between Italy and Switzerland after a suspected bomb was discovered near Rome’s Stadio Olimpico, just before kick-off.

Italian security forces were called to the scene after a passerby spotted a suspicious item inside a parked car while headed for the Euro 2020 match.

The suspected bomb was found near the Piazza Mancini area of the capital, just a few kilometres away from the stadium at around 5.40pm, reported Corriere dello Sport.

The road surrounding the car was blocked by security officials to allow the bomb squad to carry out operations to diffuse the explosive.

According to reports, the bomb appeared to be homemade with gunpowder, bolts and electric wires. The police have not yet officially confirmed the device as a bomb.

Rome mayor Virginia Raggi said the bomb was found attached to an official’s car, while noting the seriousness of the situation and expressing solidarity. She did not, however, link the bomb threat to the match.

“A bomb was found in the car of Marco Doria, president of the Table for the redevelopment of parks and historic villas in Rome. A very serious fact, I express my full solidarity,” Ms. Raggi wrote on Twitter.

Italian politician, Carlo Calenda said the official in whose car the bomb was found was allegedly targeted following the redevelopment of historic Roman villas in the city.

Mr. Doria had faced threats in the past over reforms of park services. Investigations have been launched by the police in the case.

The match kicked off at 8 pm as Italy and Switzerland clashed for their Group A game. The host won by 3-0 over Switzerland in their second match and became the first team to enter round 16 of Euro 2020.
