Stephen Appiah urges Thomas Partey to join Arsenal due to suitability

Former Juventus midfielder Stephen Appiah has urged Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey to join Arsenal due to the Gunners' suitability.

The former Juventus midfielder says Arsenal's style of play will suit the Ghanaian.

Partey, 27, has consistently been linked with a move to North London with manager Mikel Arteta believed to be a huge admirer of the midfielder.

Reports have claimed the Gunners have tabled a lucrative offer for the Ghanaian, who is keen to leave Wanda Metropolitano to prove himself in the Premier League.

And former Ghana captain Stephen Appiah has urged his compatriot to join Arsenal for easy adaptability.

“He is one of the best so at this particular moment, he knows what is good and bad for him. During my heydays, I take the decisions that if I go to Fenerbache it is good than to go to Chievo Verona,” Appiah said

“It will be a difficult decision for him if it is true that Arsenal wants him but I think his style of play will suit Arsenal very well."

Partey has scored three goals in 36 appearances for Diego Simeone's side this season.

He has a contract with the Rojiblancos until the summer of 2023 with the club keen to extend until 2025 with an improved offer.
