Arsenal legend, Lauren has hailed Thomas Partey and is encouraging the Gunners to make their move for him.
The Ghanaian box-to-box midfielder has been one of the top players in the world for some time now and his performances in the Champions League last season has earned him even more admirers.
Arsenal needs some steel in their midfield and he has emerged as their top target ahead of the new season.
The Gunners have reportedly approached Atletico Madrid to sign him, but the Spaniards have made it clear that they will only allow him to leave if his release clause is paid.
The midfielder is also keen to make the move with reports claiming that he has turned down the offer of a new deal.
But Arsenal is struggling to get the money to get the deal done, but Lauren thinks that the midfielder is a top player and he will be a solid addition to the Gunners’ starting XI.
“He’s a top player. He’s been improving under [Diego] Simeone,” the former Arsenal man said as quoted by the Daily Star.
“We’ve seen this guy since his early days with Mallorca, so he stepped up to a bigger club with Atletico Madrid and kept performing well, improving year after year.
“Before he was used as a holding midfielder.
“Now he can pass the ball, play with the striker, have shots from outside the box and even score important goals, as we saw last year in the Champions League.
“If Arsenal decide to sign him, I think it will be a fantastic addition in the middle of the park.”
He is a no brainer signing imo, the sooner we can shift players on so we can sign him the better.
If he is the last signing we make this window then I strongly believe the club would have done great considering everything that has and is going on in the world right now.
We all know that it would take atleast 2-3 windows to sort out our deficiencies around the squad but with Partey added to our squad it will make us top 4 contenders.
Many people have said that we will challenge for teh title this season but i really dont think that is on the cards, hopefully we can close the gap on the top 2 ( City and Pool) which is what we should be aiming for, hopefully its enough for top 4 and maybe we can add another trophy aswell this season, my hope is thats its the Europa league which has eluded us when we have played in the competition
Edu plz sign this Ttwo gentleman To our midfield Thomas party and Houssem aour so that we can go back to where we belongs and if we do that I see another invincible coming back I hope they will consider our wish as great fans of the Gunners once a gooner always a gooner keep shining arsenal
Then presumably LAUREN will give Arsenal at least half the fee towards buying PARTEY! OR JUST POSSIBLY, NOT!!!
As much as I love Lauren, what is he saying that any self respecting Gooner doesn’t wish for or want to happen?
Exactly, can’t see the need for another ex player stating the blindinly obvious !!
