The box-to-box midfielder has penned a five-year deal with the Gunners and would be at the Emirate Stadium until 2026
Ghana deputy captain Thomas Teye Partey has signed a five-year deal with English Premier League side Arsenal from Atletico Madrid, the two clubs have confirmed.
The 27-year-old has been constantly linked to the London-based club since the start of the year but the deal could only be completed on transfer deadline day in a reported fee of €50 million including add ons.
Partey is expected to start in midfield ahead of former Arsenal captain Xhaka as the club hope to secure a top four finish this season to book a UEFA Champions League slot.
Partey’s move to the Premier League has made him the most expensive Ghanaian player ever.
