Arsenal managed to finally secured the signed of Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid after a long pursuit of the 27-year-old midfielder.
The Ghanaian international has been the club’s top midfield target for a long time and he is expected to be the final jigsaw that completes the puzzle for the Gunners.
If Gunners expects him to becoming an upgrade to their current midfield option, then they will not be disappointed. This is because the 27-year-old midfielder beats every midfielder in his new team in different stats.
Sportarena made a comparison of his stats and that of the midfielders he will meet at Emirates stadium from the 2018/19 season, and they were no match.
Thomas Partey has scored three goals since that time, while no Gunners midfielder has scored more than once since that time.
He also made more interceptions (44), more tackles (76), recoveries (240), won more duels (241), and completed more dribbles (64).
The closest player Gunners had to some of the Ghanaian’s stat was Granit Xhaka who is experience to become his crime partner in Arsenal’s midfield.
Thomas Partey looks like player that Arsenal has been yearning for since they lost Patrick Vieira.
