Arsenal ‘have signed the signing of the transfer window’ fans have been told
Thomas Partey was “the signing of the transfer window”, claims former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell.
We all know that Arsenal finally managed to splash the cash and seal a transfer deal to bring the impressive Partey to the Emirates for £45 million, a deal that has got many people excited about what he can bring to the club.
And former Gunners Campbell has opened up and claimed that Partey was the signing of the transfer window: “Thomas Partey was the signing of the transfer window,” ex-Gunners frontman Campbell told GentingBet. “For Arsenal to get him for £45m is tremendous business – Arsenal almost went in with balaclavas on and stole him!
“Atletico Madrid dropped the ball by only having a £45m release clause, he is a player that is a lot better than £45m in this current market, but that was the release cause and Arsenal met it and they have their man.
“It is a key position for the club, he is moving into his prime and he will spend those years at the football club, so he is someone that the club can build around in midfield.”
He added: “With Partey added to the mix, Arsenal need to be looking at finishing in the top four.
“Having that key figure defensively, someone who can protect the back is so important in modern day football and Arsenal haven’t had that in years – they’ve had players there who haven’t really liked playing there that have done a job but this is a level above.
“If they don’t get top four that will be disappointing – it needs to be the focus of the team this year.”
Only time will tell if Partey was the signing of the summer, but one thing is for certain, there are a number of teams in the Premier League that would have loved to sign the midfielder.
