PSG to hold talks with Atletico Madrid over Thomas Partey

Paris Saint-Germain are keen to complete a major transfer coup by signing Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid after failing to land Ivan Rakitic, GHANAsoccernet.com can report.

PSG coach Thomas Tuchel has shifted his attention to the Ghanaian after becoming increasingly clear that long-time target Ivan Rakitic will stay at Barcelona.

The Croatian is reluctant to leave Spain with Barcelona unwilling to do business for the highly-rated midfielder.

Partey, who has enjoyed a fabolous run under Diego Simeone, is the next target in line for the French powerhouse.

GHANAsoccernet.com understands PSG are keen to test the resolve of Atleti by slapping in an offer for his services.

There are widespread fears in Spain that the mega-rich PSG will have their way after breaking bank to sign Brazilian super star Neymar last year.

Partey himself recognizes that first team football is not guaranteed at the Wanda Metropolitano and could be tempted to switch to France.

Again, the arrival of Thomas Lemar from Monaco in the summer, has made the situation a tricky one for the Ghana international.
