Arsenal complete the signing of Thomas Partey

By Ekali on

Atletico Madrid were left stunned by developments on Monday, despite the fact the Gunners had been linked with a switch for the Ghanaian midfielder since the beginning of the window.

The player’s lawyers arrived at LaLiga headquarters on Monday afternoon to complete the formalities of the deal, although his representative was then required to be present which came later in the evening.

Diego Simeone has been left without one of his most dependable midfielders, and Los Colchoneros are believed to be frustrated by the lack of notice given by Arsenal that this was going to happen, especially after being in close contact with them in recent days to secure Lucas Torreira’s loan.

Issues regarding a contract extension at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano first alerted Arsenal to Partey’s potential availability, although his current deal in Madrid was due to expire in June 2023.

Partey repeatedly rejected Los Colchoneros’ proposals as he felt they didn’t value him highly enough, although initially he had hoped to stay with the club who gave him his chance in Europe.
