Top-class arrival to turn Arsenal into title contenders Gooner fans have officially been told
Arsenal’s former Head of Global Scouting believes Thomas Partey’s arrival will turn the Gunners into title contenders.
Mikel Arteta was chasing the defensive midfielder throughout the summer and finally managed to land him for £45million on deadline day after the board finally stepped up and agreed to pay the fee that Madrid wanted all transfer window.
Many people are excited to see what Partey will bring to the club and alot has been said over the past few days about what he will bring to the side, but now fans have been told that he has the ability to help Arsenal challenge for that Premier League title.
Francis Cagigao, who discovered former star Cesc Fabregas before leaving his scouting role at Arsenal after 24 years this summer, believes Arteta has the final jigsaw in his puzzle, Speaking to the Daily Mail, he said: “He is a player that we pursued for a long time and strongly recommended over the last few years.
“I first watched him about six years ago playing for Almeria on loan from Atletico Madrid and he was more box-to-box, attacking even.
“I think we will see him with the shackles off because he did very much play in a constricted midfield unit [at Atletico]. He could be the final piece of the jigsaw that makes Arsenal challenge for the title.”
Only time will tell if Partey is the player that many expect him to be, but there is a real buzz around his arrival that has given this Arsenal side a real boost.
Fans have been calling for a top-class player to come in and play in that holding role position, and now that they have one, many will just be hoping that the Premier League doesnt swallow him up like so many in the past.
He is a great signing…..
