The Ex Ghana midfielder, Michael Essien has backed Thomas Partey to move to the Premier League this summer. The Ghanaian midfielder Partey, 27-years old, has been constantly linked to Arsenal this summer despite the interest from Manchester United, Inter Milan, Napoli and PSG.
However, the Ghana midfielder is desperate to move to the Premier League with Arsenal likely to be his next destination. Mikel Arteta’s side are looking to offload two or three players to land the midfielder.
But according to Essien, who played for Chelsea in the Premier League believe the dynamic midfielder will suit the Premier League. “Thomas Partey is one of the best players. I’d have loved to play with him,” Essien cleared out, as quoted by Goal.
“He is a young and talented player making way in Europe. He is one player I’d liked to play alongside but it will never happen.
According to the former Tottenham Hotspurs right back, Kieran Trippier speaking last month told the Beautiful Game podcast that Partey style will suit the Premier League.
“I’d seen him play for Atletico but I didn’t realise how good he is. “He’s unbelievable, his physicality, how he breaks up play. Technically he’s got everything. “Thomas is still a very young player and everyone loves him out here. “He speaks perfect English, very good English. I don’t think he’d have a problem with the Premier League.”
