Thomas Partey has been offered a staggering $200 million contract by a club in Saudi Arabia, according to former Ghana Football Association Communications Director, Ibrahim Sannie Daara.
Daara, who has a good relationship with the Arsenal midfielder, revealed the astonishing offer. If Partey signs the two-year contract, he will earn a tax-free salary of $100 million per year. Al Ahli, Al Nassr, and Al Khaleej are the three Saudi clubs interested in securing Partey’s services.
Saudi Arabian clubs have expressed interest in signing the Arsenal star, with a potential transfer fee of €40 million.
The proposed payment would be made in instalments, making it an appealing option for the North London club.
The Ghanaian’s departure from Arsenal is becoming more likely, however, no final decision has been made by the player regarding his future.
Italian giants Juventus are also interested in Partey and could make a move for him this summer.
Despite the growing speculation, Arsenal have yet to enter into new contract talks with Partey, who is under contract until 2025.
Partey, who joined Arsenal from Atletico Madrid for £45 million in 2020, played a crucial role in the Gunners’ campaign last season, featuring in 33 out of 38 Premier League matches as they mounted their first Premier League title challenge in 15 years.
Saudi Arabia has emerged as an attractive destination for football stars, with the government acquiring four clubs in the country and investing heavily in securing renowned players.
Recent signings such as N’golo Kante, Karim Benzema, and Cristiano Ronaldo in the Saudi Pro League have further increased their popularity.
