However on deadline day Arsenal finally made their fans happy by signing their top long time target Thomas Partey from Spanish giants Atletico Madrid in a deal worth £45 million.

The defensive midfielder becomes Arsenal's sixth major signing, after the arrivals of Willian on a free transfer from Chelsea, Cédric Soares on a free from Southampton, Rúnar Alex Rúnarsson from Dijon, Pablo Marí from Flamenco, and Gabriel from LOSC Lille.
