Thomas Partey's Reaction To Seeing His Arsenal Shirt For The First Time Is So Wholesome

Thomas Partey's Reaction To Seeing His Arsenal Shirt For The First Time Is So Wholesome

Arsenal's latest big-money signing Thomas Partey could not stop smiling after being handed the club's home shirt for the 2020/21 season.

The 27-year-old, who is expected to make his debut against Manchester City on Saturday afternoon, completed a late move to the Emirates after Arsenal activated his £45 million transfer release clause on Transfer Deadline Day.

The former Atletico Madrid midfielder put pen to paper on a £250,000 a week, four-year contract at the Premier League side and on Tuesday, he was finally pictured with his number 18 shirt after days of waiting.

"Wow! This is so cool, so nice," Partey says in the clip on Arsenal's official Twitter account. "So great man!"

Expectations will certainly be high as Partey prepares to make his debut this weekend.

The Ghana international made 46 appearances for Atletico in 2019/20, playing a key role in their third-placed finish in La Liga, as well as reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Mikel Arteta has been full of praise for the midfielder in recent days.

"We have been watching Thomas for a while, so we're now delighted to add such a high quality player to our squad." he said, shortly after a deal had been completed.
