It was the only way Atletico Madrid would have sold the player and it will be interesting to see if the Gunners can complete the formalities of the deal before the window closes.
The 27-year-old midfielder should prove to be a quality addition to Arteta’s midfield and if he can settle in quickly, he could transform the Arsenal side.
He will add power, presence and defensive cover to the Arsenal midfield.
Arsenal needed someone like Partey to dominate games better and he should be able to form a quality partnership with Ceballos and Xhaka.
He has already proven his quality in La Liga and the Champions League. He has the ability to be an instant hit in the Premier League as well. He certainly has the technical and physical attributes to succeed in English football.
