“There is nothing there” Arteta all but confirms Partey’s Arsenal future

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has seemed to confirm that Thomas Partey will remain at the Emirates for the upcoming season, despite the arrival of Declan Rice.

Since joining Arsenal, Partey has been a key figure in the squad and has played a crucial role in the team’s successes.

While Arsenal has strengthened their squad with the addition of Declan Rice and Jorginho in the last two transfer windows, Partey’s position in the team has been a topic of discussion.

Both Rice and Jorginho can play a similar role as Partey, and Rice is expected to be an automatic starter at the Emirates. This has led to speculation that Partey could find himself in a bench role, potentially prompting him to consider leaving the club.

In recent weeks, Juventus and clubs from Saudi Arabia have expressed interest in signing Partey, but Arteta’s confirmation suggests that the Ghanaian midfielder may stay at Arsenal for another season.

Speaking about his future, Arteta said via the Daily Mail:

‘Every time I spoke to him, his will is to stay with us. There is nothing there (a potential move) at all.

‘Without question, Thomas Partey is a super important player for us and for me. We want him to be in the team, that’s for sure.’

Just Arsenal Opinion

Partey has been a key man for us and keeping him at the Emirates offers us the critical squad depth that we need to do well in many competitions.

It would be interesting to see if he would stay and successfully fight for a place in the team.

  1. If Arsenal was ahead of their development by competing for the title in phase 3 , the next campaign may see us present a truer reflection of where we are really at.
    The lesson learned from the business end of the last campaign will be invaluable for the squad, those costly draws at Liverpool and West Ham in April should strengthen our resolve when we face difficult moments in the next campaign.

    The demands, the expectations will be higher, Partey with his immense experience and team chemistry is crucial for the success of phase 4.

    1. Arteta wanted to win the CL in three seasons’ time so in your phase three he wanted a big win, the biggest. So what the heck did he have planned for phases 4 and 5, a treble? it doesn’t make sense dude. It’s all been a number of things from one process from the start

  2. Keeping Thomas partey is as good as the signing of Declan rice….
    Top decision made by Mikel arteta 👍

  3. Can’t begin to imagine why MA would want to sell Partey, except for non footballing reasons.
    Glad to know he has no olans to do so.

  4. It seems neither Arteta nor Partey had plans of him leaving. A pivot of Rice and Partey for big matches is mouthwatering, and can’t wait to see the team attack with those 2 backing them up.

  5. It was very heartwarming seeing him in the training pictures in the US.
    We need him for another season at least. May be his injury challenges could be better managed with the arrival of Rice

  6. I am watching the Arsenal versus Man Utd match in New Jersey.

    It is half time and we are losing 2-0.

    There are three things I have already spotted.

    Havertz does not tackle, rather he dangles a leg. Also he is not quick enough.

    Ramesdale is playing like his mind is on where he is going out tonight. He has been Lackadasical!!!

    Third. and possibly most important, is that Rice is not that quick either.. When he played for West Ham they were defensive minded, and so had quite a few players back defending. In this game Utd attacked quickly and Rice was often bypassed, with a disjointed sfence behind him

    Arteta needs to play Partey alongside Rice when we play teams like Utd or City or Liverpool.

    Finally, Utd murdered us down their right wing. They kept playing balls over the top of both Havertz and Tommy, who was at left back.

    All in all, a very poor first half,

    Let’s hope Arteta gets them working together in the second half

  7. I think Partey, Rice and Odegaard would be a super awesome midfield. Even better than KDB, Rodri and Silva. Plus loosing Xhaka and Partey in the same window would have been disruptive.

  8. I’ll admit I believed the rumors even though losing him should not make any sense especially as we all talked about the depth that was missing
