Middlesbrough are keen on acquiring the services of Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey in the summer, according to reports in the Spanish media.
Partey, was one of the stand-out performers for Ghana at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon, catching the eye of a handful of English clubs.
Today’s report claims Boro and West Ham are the early front-runners to sign the player, who has hardly been used by coach Diego Simeone at the Vicente Calderon so far this season.
As a result, the 23-year-old midfielder is already said to be plotting his La Liga exit route – and England could well be his next destination.
Partey, has made just eight appearances for Atletico Madrid this season, following a loan stint at Almeria in 2014/15.
