Mikel Arteta has been desperate to reshape his midfield this summer and after sanctioning the departures of Lucas Toerreira and Matteo Guendouzi, he has finally landed the Ghana international.Arsenal had earmarked Houssem Aouar as their No.1 target but have been monitoring Partey’s situation for the last six months and after failing to agree a fee with Lyon for their gifted midfield technician, turned their attention to the 27-year-old in the final days of the summer window.The apparently cash-strapped north London club activated Partey’s £45million release clause earlier on Monday and the all-action midfielder subsequently penned a four-year contract said to be worth £250,000-a-week.
