Former Spurs striker Freddie Kanoute has said he hopes Arsenal transfer target Thomas Partey stays in La Liga with Atletico Madrid this summer.
“There are a few exciting [African] players in La Liga in my opinion,” he told Goal.
“I really like Thomas [Partey] of Atletico Madrid. He’s a player who is going to keep improving, and there have even been rumours of him leaving to other clubs.
“We hope to keep him in La Liga as long as possible.”
Arsenal quoted €40m for winger – report
The Gunners are set to take advantage of cash-strapped Roma by making a move for Dutch winger Justin Kluivert, according to a Teamtalk report.
Roma announced debts of over €250m last month and are currently outside the Champions League spots in fifth.
There’s speculation Arsenal could offer Henrikh Mkhitaryan plus £13m for Kluivert, but given Roma’s situation they are likely to ask for the full €40m (£35.7m).
Italian newspaper Gazetto dello Sport claim Kluivert has several suitors chasing his signature, with Arsenal and Barcelona among them.
