And according to reports, Partey has informed his employers that he does not want his move to the Emirates to cause any rift with the club's hierarchy but wants everything settled quickly.
Mikel Arteta and Arsenal technical director Edu will back the summer signing and the club are ready to sell three first-team players to fund Partey's £45million move.
It is understood that the likes of Alexandre Lacazette, Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira could be sold in the summer for the incoming Atletico star.

Partey is in his fifth season with Atletico and he is still under contract with the Madrid based club until 2023.
However, the Ghanaian's salary would be double and his release clause would be increased to £90m if he penned a new deal.
He has scored 15 goals in over 180 appearances for the club and also won the Europa League under Diego Simeone.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Thomas Partey will reportedly be involved in a swap deal for Liverpool's Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain which would come as a huge blow to Arsenal.
The Atletico Madrid midfielder has been linked with the Gunners in recent weeks but it is not certain if the London club can match his £45million release clause.
According to British news outlet The Sun, the Madrid based club are looking to bring the vastly experienced Oxlade-Chamberlain for a swap with Partey.
Legit.ng also reported that Thomas Partey has finally made a decision on whether to leave Atletico Madrid for Arsenal in the summer, reports claim.
The Ghanaian midfielder has been linked to the emirates in the past few weeks as Mikel Arteta looks to inject more experienced players into his midfield in the summer.
And a release clause of £43million is currently on the 26-year-old's contract which would be doubtful for Arsenal who currently have a tight budget for the summer due to the pandemic.
