‘Nicolas Pepe is salivating’ – Arsenal fans can’t believe what Thomas Partey has done for Ghana

Arsenal fans have been excited about the possibility of seeing Thomas Partey play since the rumours of a transfer to the Emirates began months ago.

And after completing a £45million move to north London, the excitement grew further.

Partey is currently on international duty with Ghana, and those excitement levels have gone through the roof after his performance on Monday night.

Ghana saw off World Cup 2022 hosts Qatar 5-1 in the friendly match in Turkey and Partey was in fine form.

The new Arsenal man laid on two assists during the match to send the Gunners supporters into meltdown.

Clips of the goals, and Partey’s role in them, were shared on the Arsenal Reddit page, leading to even more excitement about his imminent arrival in England and potential debut against Manchester City this weekend.

On the Reddit page that showed off his first assist, user ANameforSocialMedia said: “Partey’s passing + Auba and Pepe pace will be mad.”

That was backed up by smallgunup who said: “I can already see the Partey Pepe connection.”
