'It's happening!'- Arsenal fans go nuts after what Thomas Partey's brother did on Instagram
Arsenal have targeted Thomas Partey as the solution to their midfield problems, but Atletico Madrid are holding out for the Ghanaian's full release clause
Arsenal fans have taken to social media after spotting what they believe to be a clue to Thomas Partey's future.
The Gunners are looking to further strengthen their squad in the next few weeks of the summer transfer window.
Mikel Arteta's side have already signed Willian, who joined the club on a free transfer after the expiry of his contract at Chelsea.
The Brazilian winger signed a three-year deal at the Emirates Stadium, and was joined by compatriot Gabriel Magalhaes, who sealed a move from Lille.
Dani Ceballos also re-joined on a season-long loan deal from Real Madrid after impressing towards the end of last season.
Despite the arrivals, Arteta is understood to be targeting another dynamic midfielder to beef up the spine of his side.
Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey has been closely linked, with Arsenal reportedly seeing two bids rejected for the Ghanaian.
However, Atletico are insistent that the midfielder will only leave should his £45million release clause be met by the Gunners.
Regardless, some Arsenal supporters took to social media after noticing some activity from Partey's brother on Instagram.
It was pointed out that Partey’s sibling had followed Arsenal on the social media platform, as well as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mesut Ozil, Willian and David Luiz.
One supporter wrote: "Partey's brother following Arsenal and the players on Insta. Its happening lads."
Another tweeted: "Arsenal transfer news - Thomas Partey’s brother is following Arsenal and multiple Arsenal players on twitter! Make it happen."
Partey played a total of 46 games in all competitions for Atletico Madrid last season, scoring four goals and providing one assist.
He was an unused substitute for the club’s last game when they crashed out of the Champions League at the Quarter-Final stage against RB Leipzig.
