Thomas Partey details “difficult” target at Arsenal as he’s pictured in kit for first time

Thomas Partey has given Arsenal a “difficult” target as he arrived in the capital and trying on the kit for the first time.

The Ghanaian midfielder’s move from Atletico Madrid was confirmed on transfer deadline day after his £45m release clause was activated.

With Champions League experience, the 27-year-old is expected to slot straight into a side which won the FA Cup and Community Shield.

And the midfielder has bigger silverware in mind for his debut season.

Speaking in his first Gunners press conference, Partey said: “I’ve seen that everyone has been excited and everyone is willing to win something and all the trophies that come their way. I think that’s the goal and objective for everyone here and that’s my goal also.

“It’s something that is difficult and we all know that it’s difficult, but we’re working towards it and I think we are ready. We have to go all out and try to achieve all of that ourselves.

“I think it was a new challenge for me.

“I’ve always wanted to play in the top leagues and the Premier League is one of the top leagues, so I’m happy to be here.

“I think it’s a great challenge, I want to experience new challenges and also in a great family like Arsenal, I am ready to give it my all and try to help this great club come back to where they belong.”

The new Gunners star went on to explain his ways of working in north London.

“I have been watching the Premier League since I was in Ghana, and I think most of my Ghanaian friends and most of the people in Ghana watch the Premier League and La Liga,” Partey added.
