Partey OFFICIALLY announces he is impressed with £300,000-a-week Arsenal deal as “(winning the Premier League title) is our new objective”
Thomas Partey is impressed that Arsenal managed to keep hold of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the summer.
After months and months and month and MONTHS of transfer speculation in the media, Arsenal finally convinced Aubameyang to sign a new contract at the Emirates and stay for a further three seasons, despite the fact Barcelona and Juventus were keen on a deal.
It’s something that left Arsenal fans rejoicing and was arguably the most important deal that Mikel Arteta could have pulled off, especially as the Gabon hitman won them the FA Cup and Community Shield over the last few months.
And after seeing Arsenal get a deal wrapped up, Partey believes that keeping hold of the striker will help the Gunners become title contenders once again, which their new signing says he’s targeting.
“Yes, it helps me understand that the club wants to achieve greater things and for me it is great to play alongside great players like him,” Partey told the media at his Arsenal unveiling.
“This (winning the Premier League title) is our new objective. That’s the objective of the club, of me myself and I think that we have to get back to where we belong.
“It’s something that is difficult and we all know that it’s difficult, but we’re working towards it and I think we are ready. We have to go all out and try to achieve all of that ourselves.”
Adding Partey to this Arsenal squad was a very good bit of business by Arsenal and the side is looking very threatening, so the fact that they managed to keep hold of their best player also shows that Arsenal boss Arteta has got his plan across to the new and old players.
So we agree with Partey and we are very impressed on how Arsenal managed to keep hold of Aubameyang.
