Thomas Partey joined Arsenal in 2020 and was the staple of Arsenal’s midfield up until the Gunners signed Declan Rice last summer. Unfortunately, the midfielder spent most of that time out with various injuries.

With the midfielder so often unavailable, the Gunners have had to adapt to play without Partey and it has reached the point where his quality does not make up for his lack of availability.

Partey has missed 405 days through injury since joining the Gunners so far. In comparison, he missed just seven days through injury at Atletico Madrid.

All of this coupled with his other rumoured issue off the pitch, it would be no surprise to anyone if Arsenal sold the midfielder this summer with the Gunners supposedly ready to accept offers of around £25m,

Bruno Guimaraes joined Newcastle in 2022 but before the midfielder made the switch, Arsenal were strongly linked with a move.

Fast-forward to 2024 and once again the Gunners are strongly linked with Guimaraes. Rumours are rife that Arsenal and Manchester City will once again lock horns to battle over the signature of a Premier League midfielder. Sound familiar?

The midfielder has a £100m release clause but it is believed that Newcastle will listen to offers over £80m from clubs competing in the Champions League.

Guimaraes has averaged 7.70 duels won per 90 so far in the league this season as well as maintaining a pass accuracy of 85.7%. If Arsenal were to complete a deal for the Brazilian, the Gunners would boast a formidable midfield of Bruno Guimaraes, Declan Rice and Martin Ødegaard.
