Partey will miss Arsenal’s upcoming games, as he is part of the Ghana squad at the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations.

West Ham United are also reported to be interested in the Danilo, but they have only enquired and have not put it in a bid.

Esportes have added that Palmeiras do not want to sell Danilo, who has a release clause of R$660 million (£86.18m).

The Brazilian club do not want to sell Danilo before the summer of 2022.
