The new signing arrived at the Gunners’ training ground for the first time on Tuesday after the international duty and could make his debut against Manchester City this weekend.
The Ghanaian midfielder made a £ 45million transfer from Atletico Madrid on deadline day and admits he needs to adapt quickly to the rigors of the Premier League.
“Arteta was very important [for the move]”He said.” He and (CTO) Edu told me about their plans and it was so exciting I had to accept it.
« [The manager] has seen me play and knows what I can bring to the team. I think he watched me at Atletico and wants me to bring the same to this team.
“I think I have to be quick [to adapt] and learn everything as fast as possible. I have to do whatever I have to do in training and make him see me and that I’m ready to play for him.
“It’s a big challenge. I want to take on new challenges. I am ready to give my all and help the club find its place. ”
Partey will be hoping to help Arsenal return to Major Trophy competition after Arteta won the FA Cup in his first season as manager, following his stint from Pep Guardiola’s assistant at Manchester City.
This includes the Premier League title, but Partey said: “’It’s something that will be difficult.
“But we’ll work on it. I think we are ready. We must do everything to try to be successful. “
