Nuhu: If Partey joins Arsenal I will be happy for him

Speaking on Instagram this week, Kasim Nuhu explained his thoughts on the possibility of Thomas Partey joining Arsenal.

“Atletico Madrid is a very good club so he is playing one of the biggest clubs in the world and Arsenal is also one of the biggest,” Nuhu said (via GhanaWeb).

“For me, it is his decision because playing in Atletico Madrid is the same as playing in Arsenal. The two teams always make the same category in the league fighting for the 3rd and 4th place to play in Champions League.

“But as we all know the Premiership is the best league in the world. So if he joins Arsenal, I will be happy for him.”

GhanaWeb add that few know Partey as well as Nuhu does. They’re roommates on international duty, they played together at Real Mallorca and they’re close friends. You’d think he’d know if Partey actually didn’t rate Arsenal and the Premier League highly at all.

From that point of view, the comments are just further feeding into recent reports that Partey himself would welcome a move to Arsenal.

The player reportedly likes what he hears about Mikel Arteta, he was an Arsenal fan as a child and he wants the opportunity to live in London. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean the Gunners can afford to sign him.

Partey has a few years left on his Atletico contract and a €50m release clause. That clause didn’t seem so unreasonable pre-coronavirus, but now it’s a huge stretch.

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training

Published

Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
