    Thomas Partey is an ‘excellent signing’ who ‘could be the difference’ for Arsenal this season, Liverpool icon claims

    John Barnes believes the arrival of Thomas Partey could elevate Arsenal to a new level this season.

    The Gunners sealed a deal for the midfielder when his £45million buyout clause was met with little more than half an hour remaining before the 11pm deadline on Monday last week.

    Big things are expected of Partey in midfield for Arsenal

    Partey was not short of options in the summer window, with Chelsea and Juventus among the clubs who were also interested in the Ghana international.

    And Barnes has insisted that the 27-year-old has plugged a weakness in Arsenal’s XI that needed to be addressed.

    “Thomas Partey was necessary for Arsenal, they needed strengthening in defensive midfield, and players who could break the game up whilst leading from the back and turning defence into attack,” Barnes told Bonus Code Bets.

    “Partey is a decent player on the ball but his true qualities lie in winning the ball back and giving Arsenal that steel in midfield to protect the back four, so he is an excellent signing for them.

    “It is important that fans understand that he won’t start spraying long diagonal balls, doing step overs in the opposition half or scoring from long range. Arsenal have many players such as Aubameyang and Willian who can do that for them.

    “Partey will be that shield to support the defence and break up the play, which Arsenal have been crying out for a long time. He really could be the difference for them this season and I am excited to see how he gets on.”
