Thomas Partey has been accomplished in his displays for Atletico Madrid. A midfielder from Ghana, he has been with the Los Rojiblancos from his youth.
He has been a rock in the midfield for Diego Simeone, since making the step up to their senior squad. His consistent performances among Europe’s elite have not gone unnoticed.
Arsenal have been one of his many admirers in Europe. The Gunners have been underwhelming in the recent past when it comes to their league standings come the end of the season.
Partey is the kind of player that can put a halt to those failings. He is a strong presence in the middle of the park and has been playing at a top level for quite a few seasons now.
His experience would come handy for an Arsenal side trying to return to the Champions League soon under Mikel Arteta.
There were solid rumors about Partey making the move to Arsenal this summer. These were further fuelled by his father claiming Partey and his representatives were in contact with Arsenal over a move.
Partey’s agent, however, quashed those claims, stating that he was happy in Madrid. It seems like he is likely to stay put, for now.
But, stranger things have happened and Partey could, in fact, make the move to North London. His compatriot, Joseph Mensah, fuelled speculation by posting his reaction to the rumors.
He claimed he had his fingers crossed over Partey’s move to Arsenal.
Arsenal fans were over the moon when they saw his tweet. They claimed that how could Partey’s father be lying when his friend was optimistic over the transfer.
