The Atletico Madrid midfielder has become a big transfer target for Arsenal.
Thomas Partey – 27 caps for Ghana, 10 goals scored – is the subject of one of the biggest transfer speculations of this summer having been linked with a move to English Premier League side Arsenal.
Whilst it is true that the Premier League remains the most watched European soccer league overseas due to the high number of foreign stars and the stronger relative competitive balance , we at SPORTSWorldGhana.com produce five concrete reasons why the Black Star midfielder must reject Arsenal and continue with his current Spanish club.
1.Atletico Madrid is a better team over Arsenal currently
Champions League finalists in 2014 and 2016, Atletico went on to win the Europa League in 2018 making them obviously better than Arsenal whom they eliminated in the semifinals of the Europa competition before dispatching Marseille with ease in the final match imposing a solid 3-0 victory over the French side.
In terms of this season whilst the Madrid side – who are already qualified for the quarterfinals of the Champions League – are the 3rd best team in the La Liga , the team of Mikel Arteta are disappointedly 9th in the EPL.
2.La Liga is a better league than the Premier League
La Liga is better says UEFA via their Association coefficient rankings. The England top tier league only plays second fiddle to the Spanish Primers Division.
3. He is already a starter at Atletico. Why do you leave ?
Why do you leave your comfort zone to join a struggling team in the Premiere League? Partey has worked hard to become one of the most important players for manager Diego Simeone appearing in 183 official matches all coming under the Argentine coach.
4.The EPL is a different league.
183 games for Atletico Madrid since 2015/16 season means the Ghanaian is not a novice in terms of top tier football but in terms of the league itself Partey has no experience about the the actual football is played in the country of Wayne Rooney.
5.He is guaranteed to win better trophies at Atletico
Since Atletico Hass a better team which all agree , Partey is always likely to win big things with the Spanish club than with Arsenal who have not won any big trophy since 2004 with the exception of the FA Cups.
