Arsenal follow Thomas Partey transfer up with double deal just as window shuts

Arsenal managed to sign two more players before the transfer window shut on Monday night after the acquisition of Thomas Partey.

Nikolaj Moller and Joel Ideho joined and will go straight into the Gunners’ Professional Development Phase, under Steve Bould’s tutelage.

Both were signed after the arrival of Partey, who was done at the death on deadline day.

The Ghana international was Mikel Arteta’s top target and was the last signing to his senior squad.

As well as the 27-year-old, the Gunners splashed the cash with seven new arrivals.

Willian, Gabriel Magalhaes, Runar Alex Runarsson, Cedric Soares, Pablo Mari and the loan signing of Dani Ceballos indicated a busy summer at the Emirates.

But the newest additions, Moller and Ideho, have been touted for big futures.

The former has been called ‘the next Zlatan Ibrahimovic’ and was signed from Malmo for £450,000.

The Sweden Under-19 international has penned a four-year contract whereas Ideho has arrived from Holland.

The pacy winger had a short stint with Ajax but has spent much of his time with Willem II.

Bould’s youth team has seen increasing investment after several signings this summer, also including George Lewis, Tim Akinola and Jonathan Dinzeyi.

It has been a successful summer for Arteta, who landed Partey against the clock from Atletico Madrid.
