Arsenal finally land Thomas Partey, but is he worth the price? | ESPN FC

  • Published on Oct 5, 2020
  • It went all the way to the end of the transfer window, but the Thomas Partey saga is over as Arsenal has confirmed his arrival from Atletico Madrid. Did the Gunners overpay for the 27-year-old by triggering his £45 million release clause? ESPN FC’s Julien Laurens and Gab Marcotti react to the move and discuss what other Premier League clubs impressed them in the transfer window.

    He's worth more than the price, everyone with a brain knows this. This isn't FIFA -- watch the difference he makes. (BTW he's also one of a kind in fifa due to his well rounded stats)

    Gab is that his name? I am not even sure if i wrote your name correctly, but mate you talking rubbish, first of all partey is 27 years old and that is prime time for the footballers, secondly he is not worthy 45m he is actually worthy 80m but arsenal were lucky they had to pay the release clause

    If Partey signed for Liverpool or Manchester all you biased pundits will be praise singing those teams. Whether you pundits like it or not Arsenal will rule.

    ESPN, your punditry is horrible, especially the pudgy chap. Arsenal finally sign a really high-quality, dynamic player; one that has quality we were clearly missing at his position, and they see it as a dodgy signing? Come on. Seriously, Arsenal could get Messi on the free and then they’d be talking about he’s past his prime...

    I'm a arsenal fan and I agree with gab. Partey is class but he is already 27. I feel arsenal panicked, would have rather waited till January. Anyways ,I hope he gives 6-7 years of world class service and helps us win in Europe.

    I doubt if Gab has even watched Partey once playing a game of football, yet he's got the gut to come on here to spew something called "expert" opinion. Laughable indeed.

    27 is very young for the type of player Partey is. Most defensive midfielders like him peak around 30-32 so he has many years left.


    The guy that wasn't sure about Partey is literally clueless.

  • MaximusDecimusMeridius

    Eyy u guy on the left.. Don't berate him for his age.. He might be 27..but look at his physicality.. He can play quality football for atleast 7 more yrs!!!

    We should sell Özil bcoz Ceballos and Willian will do the technical stuff .
    Instead of loaning Guendouzi out it should be Xhaka .
    Torreira is good but Elneny is not that good .
    Play Ceballos as Attacking , Guendouzi as central and partey as defensive midfielder .

    Gab doesn't know anything about Arsenal does he? Does he know that Arsenal had the youngest average age last season in the prem?

  • Reuben Akoji Ugbomeh

    Can't these pundits do their job without applying sentiment? Whenever they discuss arsenal, u can virtually see from their faces and actions that they don't like arsenal at all. Please you guys should hide your feelings abit. Especially when you are on air. Come on!!

  • Skittles

    Firstly Torreira was not comfortable with his life in england and secondly I believe Partey is a big upgrade to the midfield. Torreira's height is a big disadvantage and he is not a defensive midfielder like Partey. Arsenal's defence is improving day by day and Partey will provide a shield in front of arsenal's defence. Also Arsenal did not sign redundant players like chelsea. Chelsea's forward line was excellent still they signed Werner, Havartz for such a huge amount. ManU signed a 33 year old striker. Arsenal don't need a forward right now. They needed midfielder and they got a good one. Probably one defender would be better but still their current defence is pretty good.

    new age Viera! this is a great signing, its not att mids or forwards we need, we just need a structured cdm or cb combo bc our wings are fast both full backs and mids and we have forwards with super fire power, this was the piece of the puzzle missing
