Partey joined Arsenal from Spanish giants Atletico Madrid where he played 132 games in the Spanish La Liga and scored 12 goals before he moved to the Emirates stadium.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Arsenal legend Ian Wright told current gaffer of the Gunner Mikel Arteta to make sure in his efforts to sign 22-year-old Lyon and French midfielder Houssem Aouar in January next year.

Ian Wright is of the views that Aouar will be of great help to Thomas Partey in the midfield for Arsenal if the Gunners' chiefs should bring him to the Emirates stadium.
