Thomas Partey grew up at Atletico Madrid and was promoted to their first team in 2015. The Ghana international grew stronger and became a mainstay for the Colchoneros under the guidance of Diego Simeone.
After five successful years with Atletico, he left the club in 2020. The 30-year-old joined Arsenal in a transfer worth £45 million. And Partey has been an integral part of Mikel Arteta’s plans since he joined the North London club.
Last season, he played a total of 40 matches and was on the field for more than 2,600 minutes. The 30-year-old player even contributed 3 goals. However, things have recently changed and even Partey is starting to worry about his chances of starting in the context of Arteta having more options in midfield.
Despite starting all four matches at the beginning of the season, during the time Partey was injured, Arteta let Ben White return to the right-back position and gave the role of managing the midfield to Declan Rice.
Therefore, Partey is quite worried about his future. According to sources from Football Insider, The Ghanaian star will consider leaving the Emirates in January if his starting position is not guaranteed.
