New Arsenal signing, Thomas Partey, has spoken about his club idols while growing up.
It is no secret the Ghanian was a fan of the club as a youngster, which is why he was so desperate to move there.
Now the defensive midfielder has secured his dream move from Atletico Madrid, after arriving on deadline day.
“I feel so great, excited, it is something that makes me feel great, makes me feel important and it is a great feeling to be here,” Partey told Arsenal.com.
“I have followed Arsenal for a long time. When we were young we used to watch so many games, when they had the Invincibles season in 2004, they were so great. That is when they won the hearts of so many people.
“There were a lot of great players [here at the club] before. Ian Wright was here, Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira, Pires, Bergkamp was one of the greatest, and that season was great.”
