Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Ghana International Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid.
The 27 year old joins Mikel Arteta’s side after his £45 million release clause was triggered by the London side.
Partey spent eight years at Atletico, and played a key role as Diego Someone’s side won the 2018 UEFA Europa league.
Arsenal announced the deal on their official twitter handle on Monday.
Welcome to the Partey! 🥳
