Atletico Madrid could reduce their demands from Arsenal for midfielder Thomas Partey should the Gunners accept to trade Matteo Guendouzi as part of the transfer deal.
Diego Simeone is believed to be an admirer of the young Frenchman who has walked his way into Mikel Arteta’s team.
Arsenal remain in the race for Partey but will need to cough out an amount of £48.5million to land the Ghana star.
But that could be reduced should they agree to do business with the Spanish side with the inclusion of Guendouzi who is just 21.
Partey is unlikely to stay at the Wanda Metropolitano due to the growing interest for the English side.
Despite interests from French giants Paris Saint German, Arsenal remain in the forefront to sign the 27-year-old combative midfielder who has two years left on his Atletico Madrid contract.
