Keep’: Darren Bent tells Arsenal not to sell £200,000-a-week player


TalkSPORT pundit Darren Bent has said on Twitter that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta should not sell Thomas Partey in the summer transfer window.

The former Tottenham Hotspur striker has said that Arsenal should keep Thomas Partey and actually include him in the starting lineup.

Bent, who is an Arsenal fan, believes that Partey, Declan Rice and Martin Odegaard would form a formidable midfield combination.

Arsenal have just completed the signing of England international midfielder Rice from London and Premier League rivals West Ham United.

Former Real Madrid player Odegaard is one of the best playmakers around.

I'd keep Thomas Partey, Partey Rice Odegaard that's a serious midfield combination, give Rice more of a license to go forward 🔴⚪

The Norway international attacking midfielder has scored 23 goals and given 13 assists in 87 appearances in the Premier League so far in his career.

And Partey was a force to be reckoned with in the middle of the park for Arsenal for most of last season.

Earlier this month, Football Transfers reported that the £200,000-a-week (Spotrac) Ghana international defensive midfielder has told Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta that he wants to leave.

Arsenal reportedly are ready to sell the 30-year-old if they get a decent offer.

Arsenal should keep Thomas Partey

In our opinion, Arsenal should not sell Thomas Partey in the summer transfer window, unless, of course, they get an offer that is too good to turn down.

Partey is a senior figure in the Arsenal team and played well for Gunners last season.

Yes, the former Atletico Madrid star did not end the campaign strongly, but he remains a player at the top of his game.

Partey and Rice could form a very strong partnership in the middle of the park.

Rice could be able to venture forward, with Partey shielding the back line.

We believe that Arsenal should not rush into getting rid of Partey this summer.
