How Arsenal have replaced Ozil unknowingly


Analysis has proven that Arsenal have replaced the club outcast Mesut Ozil already with the signing of Ghanaian international Thomas Partey from Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid.

The North London outfit had to make a bold step by approaching La Laga to activate the £45 million release clause of the player before Atletico Madrid got to know about it.

It is assumed that Arsenal have already replaced Mesut Ozil and might have no need for Houssem Aouar again because of the qualities of Thomas Partey that have been revealed.

No one can tell the story better than his former manager Diego Simeone who was quoted to have said “Thomas is one who best understands this position and the transition from defence to attack, shooting, scoring, providing assists, and playing passes between the lines” in June.

“When he’s at his best level consistently, he’s so good that all the best teams in Europe are looking at him” he added.

All of the qualities that have been mentioned of Thomas Partey are all that Arsenal have hoped for in Mesut Ozil and Houssem Aouar but none of them currently play at the club.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has confirmed this by stressing that his team can now play differently and the team will now have a bit of balance and adaptability for the challenges ahead.
