Arsenal eye £33m-rated Premier League midfielder as Thomas Partey cover

Arsenal’s January spending looks set to continue into the final week of the window.


Arsenal have already signed Leandro Trossard from Brighton in a deal worth £26m and Jakub Kiwior from Serie A side Spezia for £20m.

This provides cover in the Gunners’ forward line and also gives Mikel Arteta a second left-footed centre-back option, as Arsenal currently only have Gabriel for that spot.

Now, it appears that the north Londoners have turned their attention to central midfield.

Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka have formed a great partnership at the base of Arsenal’s midfield this season, but an injury to either would likely spell the end of the Gunners’ title hopes as their cover is currently not up to scratch.

And on Tuesday, according to Belgian transfer reporter Sacha Tavolieri, Arsenal and Newcastle are both interested in Amadou Onana as they position themselves to rival Chelsea for the Everton midfielder.

Onana only joined Everton from Lille for £33m over the summer, but the Toffees have been in dire form this season and Onana has been one of their few plus points in 2022/23.

Onana would likely make a great backup for Thomas Partey, but getting Everton to sell in the middle of a campaign in which they are fighting relegation may prove a tough task.
