    Aouar is done. Not only did Edu fail the Aulas test, we also got Suarez'd.

    Aouar will help Lyon qualify for Europe then head to Madrid for a nicer sum than we could have mustered next summer.

    Many opposition or other fans seem to think Partey was cheap for £45 million. I think it was a good deal too, Aouar would have been even better monetarily, but Partey gives us better instant impact and his type of complete midfielder is not easy to find.

    Now if we think 250k per week is expensive, we can compare if he got 180k per week for 4 years (I think we have an option for 5th, but anyway).

    180k per week for 4 years makes ~35 million. 250k per week for 4 years makes ~48 million. That is 13 million difference.

    Now without the release clause, I would think UCL level complete midfielder would cost something like 70+ million.

    Even if we had to pay more wages to attract Partey, 45 million + 13 million makes 58 million. That is still a good price for him, that's still 12 million less than 70 million which would have been realistic price for him with 3 years in contract.

    Btw. can you go to Kroenke thread to talk about Kroenke? Or can admins move that discussion there.

    If that the case then we really can't do anything about it but going to real madrid so early at his career don't work sometimes

    Taking Spanish course just to understand this farewell message from Atleti fans.

    This is Partey thread. Arghhhh! Arsenal financials and Kroenke have their own threads.

    There was no need?

    Makes it even more strange that we apparently considered Jorginho as a back-up option if we couldn`t get Partey.

    Need to wait for more reliable reports but it does seem we are paying him quite a lot for somebody who doesn't get goals or assists.

    Hopefully he's transformational, he really should be (both on paper and by the eye test) but we can never know with these things...

    I read that Partey is flying out of the country to play international matches with Ghana - if he flies back the day after the second Ghana match then the two week quarantine period means he can't play till the 27th October? I'm guessing footballers are exempt due to the coronavirus testing they receive, or this will affect half the PL. But I do remember there being an issue with a Celtic player breaking quarantine rules so not all footballers are exempt?

    Excited to see him play for us.

    Hopefully, when we release the Partey video..he should be holding a bell in his hands.

    If I'm not mistaken he's in the elite sport bubble so unless he picks something up on his travels he'll be fine and in training with us on the 13th of October.

    I think a lot of you will be surprised by Partey's passing range and overall grace on the ball. 45mil is a snip for what we are getting, he's very well rounded.

    The only thing that makes Jorginho weird is we have Elneny, otherwise it does kinda make sense. Base of midfield Arteta was eager to improve on according to reports. Jorginho as unpopular that signing is, would have done that for sure.

    Unless my mind is blank, this is the first top midfield signing that I have ever seen as an Arsenal fan. Others were young and left field guys who became monsters - Vieira, Petit, Gilberto etc.

    This is the first time we’ve gone out and signed a top midfielder.

    Özil was 100% a top midfielder when he signed him, and would have got in any team in the world. He was coming off a season with Madrid where he scored something like 10 goals and 25 assists.

    I meant CM/DM.

    Mesut I consider one of the greats. I’m not talking AM types though, and Wenger sighed many great ones anyway - Santi, Nasri, Hleb etc.

    Xhaka nah, good player only. Xhaka is like Laca level, Partey is Auba level.
