Spain-based Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey continue to get more admirers with Watford as the latest to officially bid for the impressive Ghanaian.
The former Almeria attacking midfielder racked in four goals from the middle of the park to earn a dream move to the Calderone and has since announced himself to Europe’s elite clubs with swashbuckling performances for Diego Simeone’s men.
Partey registered his first league goal of the campaign to send Athletico top in Spain over the weekend.
The Rojiblancos warded off approaches from a number of domestic rivals before boldly ruling out a January loan move to the high-flying Hornets in the Premiership.
Madrid-based highly respected newspaper AS Marca confirmed a 9 million dollar approach from Watford for the 22-year-old Ghanaian in a desperate bid to land the utility man.
Argentine trainer for the 2013 Champions league finalists Diego Simeone, however, issued hands off threat for the high-flying Thomas.
