Thomas Partey explains why he has had injury problems at Arsenal

Thomas Partey explains why he has had injury problems at Arsenal

The Ghanaian has opened up on his problems.

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey has opened up on his injury difficulties in north London.

The Gunners are at the summit of the Premier League table as they eye their first domestic title since 2004.

And Partey has been integral to Mikel Arteta's title charge this season.

He scored his side's' first goal against Bournemouth as the Gunners mounted an almighty comeback - recovering from a two-goal deficit to win 3-2.

However, the Ghanaian missed his side's crucial match against title rivals Manchester City in February which saw Arsenal lose 3-1 at the Emirates.

He has suffered a series of injury problems since his switch from Atletico Madrid, stunting his progress in north London.

Partey explains injury problems

Explaining why he has been so injury prone since arriving at the Emirates, Partey told

“Well, I think it’s adaption. If you go from a different league, normal things happen."

“I am working on everything, I am trying my best. I am trying to help the team any time I can. When I am ready and fit, I will be ready to help the team.”

Mikel Arteta added Jorginho to his squad to help provide cover for injured absentees, with the Italian required to step in for Partey almost immediately.

Arteta keen to sign two midfielders

The Gunners boss is reportedly keen to add two more midfielders to his ranks this summer to help cope with Arsenal's busy Champions League schedule next season.

Arsenal are in line to qualify for the top four for the first time since 2017, barring an almighty capitulation.

They were recently dealt a blow after transfer target Moises Caicedo signed a new contract at Brighton keeping him at the club until 2027.

The club saw two bids rejected for the 21-year-old in January, with the second said to be worth up to £70million.

They have since turned their attention to West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, whose current deal runs out in 2024.

The England international is said to be Arteta's priority target this summer after he rejected multiple offers to extend his contract at the Hammers.
