Arsenal Complete the Signing of World Class Midfielder

Arsenal made an eleventh hour move to sign Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid on deadline day. It was a very busy day as the player was still in madrid and everything concerning the deal had to be sorted out before the deadline at 11pm.

Arsenal directly informed La liga of the their intention to meet Thomas Partey's 45 million euros release clause. Atletico were quite frustrated by the way Arsenal handled the situation as they were informed after Partey had already left Madrid.

Everything concerning the deal was sorted before the deadline and as of now, Thomas Partey is Arsenal’s newest midfielder. This is a step in the right direction for the gunners after missing out on Houssem Aouar.

The Ghana international will travel for the international break and the gunners will have to wait after it to see him in an Arsenal shirt. He will wear the number 18 shirt which was previously won by former skipper Nacho Monreal.

Reports indicate that Partey's wages will be a little of 200,000 euros. It is safe to say Arsenal broke their bank for this one and it is worth it for the quality of player they are getting.
