3. Thomas Partey
Arsenal’s decision not to sell Partey in the summer looks to have been a costly one, although I can understand why the Gunners opted to retain the Ghanaian, who was reportedly pursued by Saudi Pro League clubs.
While a supreme performer when fit and firing, Partey’s fitness woes once again plagued him at the backend of 2022/23 and he’s set to be out until the new year after undergoing thigh surgery.
He’s nothing short of a liability, and his woes have supposedly convinced the club to pursue another midfielder in the January transfer window. While European suitors might wait until the summer to make a move given his current thigh problem, I have no doubts that the Saudis will be back if Arsenal put him up for sale.
Unfortunately, the club are unlikely to garner a big fee for the 30-year-old, but I’d be open to parting ways if a suitable offer arrives in the winter.
