Can Baba or Anguissa fill Partey's big boots at Atletico Madrid?

Reports of a move away from the Spanish club continue to swirl around the Ghana international, but replacing him will be no easy task for Simeone

While the future of Thomas Partey remains uncertain, the relentless mill of transfer speculation has already begun to turn up potential replacements for the influential midfielder.

Per recent reports, the Ghana international has a contract offer from Atletico Madrid to extend his stay in the Spanish capital. However, links to North London club Arsenal persist, no doubt sparked by a statement attributed to his father in April but now fuelled by the player's own reticence toward signing the extension.

Partey's importance within Diego Simeone's system has continued to grow over the last two seasons. Following the departure of long-serving captain Gabi in 2018, the 27-year-old has assumed not just the position at the base of the Atletico midfield, but also a de facto leadership role within the team.
