Thomas Partey could fly to London in the coming weeks ahead of his imminent move to Arsenal.
Atletico Madrid are reported to have agreed to release the midfielder who remains a prime target for the Gunners.
The English Club were believed to have submitted an official bid for the 27-year-old.
Partey according to reports is all set to agree terms with the English Club with talks set to officially begin.
He will fly to London in the next couple of weeks to conclude a possible transfer to the Premiership side.
Sources say the Ghana International is unlikely to stay in Spain at the end of the season, a reason Atletico Madrid are willing to accept nothing less than his £45million release clause.
In 2012, Atletico Madrid signed the midfielder after impressing on trials and went on to join the team’s Youth side and eventually made it to the second team.
As part of his development, he was sent on loan to Real Mallorca and Almería where he overly impressed and later found his place in Deigo Simeone’s team where he has become a prominent figure in the squad.
