Italian giants Juventus are the latest club to show an interest in signing Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid.

Top clubs have been circling around the Black Stars midfielder who until the CoronaVirus induced break was in an outstanding form.

The midfielder has been linked with moves to the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United, and now Juventus have also emerged as a strong contender for his signature.

The Bianconeri see Partey as a key addition to reinforce their midfield and view his 50 million euro release clause as a bargain for what he brings to a team.

Juventus have taken a keen interest in the developments of the Ghanaian’s contract talks with Atletico Madrid, which are yet to reach a conclusion.

However, the Bianconeri know that Thomas’ priority is to stay with Los Rojiblancos, and the player isn’t listening to offers from other clubs until his contract talks are over.

Thomas’ current deal at Atletico runs until 2023 and the club are working hard on extending that deal and improving certain aspects of it, including his salary and his release clause.
