Arsenal set to activate Thomas Partye Release Clause
For Thomas Partey, Arsenal started a dramatic late move. The Gunners are currently attempting to conclude a last-minute deal with the Atletico Madrid star, although their interest in Houssem Aouar initially cools down the talks with Thomas Partey.

And as per the latest report, Arsenal look set to complete Thomas Partey deal as Mikel Arteta looks to activate the Ghanaian’s release clause in the deadline day.
Matteo Guendouzi set for loan move to Hertha Berlin
On the other hand, it is being reported that Arsenal player Matteo Guendouzi is heading to German side Hertha Berlin on loan.
Former RB Leipzig head coach and sporting director Ralf Rangnick believes, “As far as I know, Matteo Guendouzi will be on his way to Hertha Berlin, maybe as a loan deal.
“He’s a fantastic player who can play as a No 6 and No 8 and he would perfectly fit into the new set up at Hertha.
“If this move goes through today, it would be similar to the move of Ryan Sessegnon to Hoffenheim – a deal that makes sense to all parties involved.”
