According to Metro UK, the midfielder's stint at the Emirates Stadium has been plagued by a string of injuries, hampering his progress with the Gunners.

The 30-year-old has started only three Premier League matches so far this season, with his last appearance coming during Arsenal's meeting with Manchester City in October.

He has since undergone thigh surgery to alleviate the injury, ruling him out until 2024.

Could Arsenal offload Partey in January?

However, Partey may have played his last game in an Arsenal shirt, with reports claiming the club are open to selling him in January to fund the transfer of new players.

ESPN claims that the North Londoners are considering the possibility of cashing in on the midfielder in the New Year.

Funds from his sale are expected to be invested in recruiting new signings, with the EPL leaders keen to sign a prolific striker and a central midfielder.

Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, Brentford's Ivan Toney, and Douglas Luiz of Aston Villa have all been lined with a possible move to the Emirates outfit.

Partey, meanwhile, has courted interest from Juventus and the Saudi Pro League.

Arteta concerned about Partey's injury woes

Sports Brief also reported on Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta expressing concern about Partey, with the Ghanaian stuck on the sidelines for some time.

He was ruled out of the Gunners' Carabao Cup game against West Ham United after picking an injury before the UEFA Champions League clash with Sevilla.

Partey has only seen 20 minutes of action after recovering from an injury that kept him out since August, coming on as a substitute against Manchester City.
