The wait to see Thomas Partey in an Arsenal shirt is over after the Gunners officially unveiled their star midfielder.

"What I [noticed] was that he was [only] willing to play where there is Champions League but [I suggested to him that] can't he be where there is no Champions League and help them get into the Champions League?"

However, they only finished eighth in the league and have not played in the Champions League since 2016-17.

"That's the objective of the club and myself".

"It's something that is hard and we all know that it's hard, but we're working towards it and I think we are ready". We have to go all out and try and achieve all I have said. "In football, I have make sure I do everything on the training ground and make sure Mikel sees that I am ready to play for him". "We have to get back to where we belong".

Money is tight at the Emirates Stadium so Arsenal had to trim the squad in order to free-up funds and we finally made our move for Partey after selling Emi Martinez to Aston Villa and getting Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira off the books via season-long loans. "I said it's because I started with Thomas and people are familiar with Thomas, so I need to go with Thomas". I am ready to give it my all and try to help this great club come back to where they belong.

"For me it's a great feeling".

"They [manager Mikel Arteta and technical director Edu] told me about their plans and it was so exciting so I had to accept it".

In that game that Arsenal won 2-0, it was Spanish midfield dynamo Santi Cazorla who produced what fans describe as one of the best midfield performance of the Premier League era.

'It was a moment that my father [Jacob] wanted me to be a professional, because when we were young we watched a lot of games in the Premier League and La Liga,' Arsenal's new midfielder, one of eight siblings said, reflecting on his early years.
