Ghana International Thomas Partey has finally been handed his favorite No.5 jersey at Arsenal.
The former Atletico Madrid top-notch midfielder will wear the No 5 shirt for the forthcoming season, changing from the No 18 he wore following his arrival from Atletico Madrid in October.
Partey had an incredible spell in the Spanish Laliga, prompting the Gunners to part ways with 50 million euros for his signature.

Talking about the switch, Thomas said: “I like the No 5 because it’s one of the most important numbers in the team and it is also a lucky number for me. It’s the number I’ve worn for the past few years, so for me, it’s one of the best numbers.”
The 28-year-old wears the same number for the Black Stars.
