I think it’s fair to say that Thomas Partey has had a slow start at Arsenal.
Hampered by fitness issues, it took him a while to find his feet.
But he found them.
Until his recent thigh problem, he was simply majestic in the middle of the Arsenal team, so much so that his defeat in the last part of the season was a blow.
But if you read Files and don’t look at Arsenal, you’d be forgiven for thinking they were still struggling very badly.
They even go so far as to speculate his form was so poor that Arsenal are considering selling him, only they know they will never be able to recoup the £50m they spent to bring him to London.
Then there’s AS, a far more respectable outfit than FIchajes who say Mikel Arteta will sell Thomas Partey for €30m in order to buy Arthur from Juventus:
If you were to ask anyone at Arsenal – fans, players or managers – they would all tell you the same thing – if you offered them £50m for Thomas Partey right now they would tell you where to push him.
