Thomas Partey ‘likes’ Arsenal fan’s tweet

Thomas Partey has liked an Arsenal fan’s tweet as speculation surrounding his future at Atletico Madrid continues. 

The Ghanian midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates, but so far the club have not been able to agree a deal with Diego Simeone’s side. Arsenal fans have been clamouring for even a small sign he might be close to joining the club, and they got that thanks to Twitter. 

The original tweet was from Goal, and said: “Thomas Partey is going to be a star.”

And the fan quote retweeted it, with the caption: “Going to be? He’s already a star,” to which Partey responded by liking it.
