Former Arsenal player, Paul Merson, has described the club’s new signing, Thomas Partey, as the best summer signing within the Premier League.
The Ghanaian joined the Gunners from Atlético Madrid after the north London side triggered his £45 million release clause.
Partey controlled the midfield in Arsenal’s 2-1 victory over Rapid Vienna within the Europa League and also had a superb performance in the Gunners’ victory over Manchester United.
Merson, while speaking on Arsenal’s victory at Old Trafford, described Partey as the best signing.
“They beat a really, terribly poor Manchester United team on the day. They’ve done employment, we’ve seen them lose those games over the last five or six years.”
“But I feel Partey’s a huge, massive difference. I mean, what a signing.”
“When you mention signings within the summer, he needs to be favorite. I cannot believe, without being horrible here, that Arsenal got him,” Merson said on Sky Sports.
