Chelsea fans have taken to social media to react to a possible transfer indication surrounding Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey. More than £ 200m it has been spent by the Blues this summer, as they have brought in the likes of Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell, Timo Werner, and Hakim Ziyech in an attempt to reduce the gap with Liverpool in the Premier League. But is there work going on behind the scenes to complete a final signature – in terms of incomings – at the deadline?
The report said the team of West London could seek alternatives to West Ham United Declan Rice in his attempt to get a defensive midfielder before the closure of the transfer window. Moreover, it is stated that one option could be Partey, which has a release clause of £ 45 million on his contract with Atletico.
Meanwhile, the Telegraph reports that Chelsea scouts have been watching Partey have in recent months and could be a replacement for Jorginho via links to the Gunners and Paris Saint-Germain.
