Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Ghana International Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid.
The 27 year old joins Mikel Arteta’s side after his £45 million release clause was triggered by the London side.
Partey spent eight years at Atletico, and played a key role as Diego Someone’s side won the 2018 UEFA Europa league.
Arsenal announced the deal on their official twitter handle on Monday.
Partey becomes the most expensive Ghanaian transfer in history, surpassing Michael Essien’s £22 million pound move from Lyon to Chelsea back in 2005.
