Following all the stories from the Italian media claiming Juventus are interested in Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey, it’s now the French press who brings interesting news on this chase.

Foot Mercato today writes that the Bianconeri are now ‘accelerating’ to get the signing done in the January transfer window.

It’s said Juventus want to convince Partey of switching Arsenal for Juventus and even ‘held a meeting’ between their management and the player.

On Twitter, journalist Santi Aouna details that this meeting took place in London, with Bianconeri director Cristiano Giuntoli meeting the midfielder in the ‘past few days’.

The story points out that the player has been struggling to get playing time with the Gunners this season, and that could be a good argument for Juventus to use in the talks over a loan.

The Old Lady are looking to strengthen their midfield in the middle of the campaign, having several targets, but it seems it’s really Partey who is the priority at this moment in time.

Now we shall see if he gets convinced by their attempts and if Arsenal will make that transfer possible with a reasonable request.
