Ghana international Thomas Partey will make Arsenal more balanced and versatile according to the club manager Mikel Arteta.

The Gunners triggered the midfielder’s £45 million release clause on his contract with Spanish giants Atletico Madrid earlier this week.

Before agreeing personal terms with Partey, who will arrive at the English giants after the current international break as he is currently on national duty with Ghana.

Arteta is looking to set the Gunners up in different formations and he believes the 27-year-old’s arrival opens up the possibility to try new things.

“We identified him a few months ago and we have been following his progress, and obviously the more you know about the squad, you know more about where you think you can improve it,” Arteta told the club’s official website.

“We believe he has the right qualities, with his character and his personality and as well with his technical qualities and positional options that he can give to the team.

“I think he allows us to play different formations and he can fit in within those formations in different positions, which is a really good thing to have in a squad where, in midfield, I think we were a little bit short.”

“I have a few things in mind that I want to start to train with the team and [Partey’s signing] is going to give us a little bit more adaptability,” he added.

“And more balance in defending and attacking transitions and the way we have to set up certain structures to attack better in certain moments of the game.” (African Football)
