Atletico Madrid not ready to sell Thomas Partey

President of Atletico Madrid, Enrique Cerezo, has rubbished claims linking Thomas Partey to AS Roma in the January transfer window.

The Ghanaian midfielder is reported to be on Giallorossi's radar as the winter transfer window inches closer.

The 25-year-old who has not enjoyed regular playing time in the ongoing campaign has been linked to some top clubs in Europe including Arsenal, PSG and AS Roma.

The Rome-based outfit are reported to have put the midfielder on their wish-list as one of their potential signings in January.

However, Enrique Cerezo has ruled out the player’s reported transfer to the Italian club.

“Diego Costa in China and Thomas in Rome? How we travel!” Cerezo said, as reported by Romanews.

“Rest assured that we are not in the market [now] or [at any] other periods. We are just focused on the team."

“We are in the round of sixteen in the Champions League. This year is important."

“We have always strengthened ourselves and I do not think we need to take [out] someone. Those we have now are almost irreplaceable.”
