English Premier League outfit Arsenal completed the signature of Ghana international midfielder Thomas Partey from Spanish la Liga outfit Atletico Madrid by activating his £45 million release clause on the transfer deadline day.

This is undoubtedly one of the biggest deals by the North London outfit and in the Premier League entirely because of how much the 27-year-old is being rated and the drama surrounding his move.

A lot has been said about his quality and how much of an addition he is to the Mikel Arteta team but there is yet a revelation made by Thomas Partey’s former teammate and former Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier on what his presence means in the Premier League.

Kieran Trippier reveals that Thomas Partey has all it takes to be called a Premier League player, citing his ability to speak English, his technicality, and his strength.

According to him, there will be no issue of settling down at Arsenal and in the Premier League because of what he already has despite the fact that he is yet to have his first taste of it.

Howbeit, Thomas Partey is expected to move straight into the Mikel Arteta team as there is no negotiation over space in the starting eleven.
