Just last week, we saw reports from the Italian media claiming Juventus were about to reactivate their chase for Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey.

It had been claimed that despite difficulties preventing them from signing the player in the past, the Bianconeri would now make new contact to try a summer deal.

As newspaper Tuttosport today features a story about Juventus’ chase for a new midfielder, the Arsenal player only gets a quick mention.

The outlet claims that even though there’s been ‘talk’ of a new pursuit of Partey, the cost to sign him would be ‘too high’ to justify the investment in a player who’s already 30 years old.

The Bianconeri are then set to move for other targets, with all of them being younger than the Arsenal player.

Partey, who has a contract with the London side until 2025, is valued by Transfermarkt at €35m.

The player was very much used by Mikel Arteta last season, and played for the 90 minutes in the Gunners’ clash against Manchester City in the Community Shield.

That shows Arsenal continue to count on him, and Juventus would need to make a big effort to convince them of a sale.
