Former Chelsea player, Michael Essien has said that Thomas Partey moving from Atletico Madrid to English Premier League side Arsenal is a great move.

He said Partey will be successful at Arsenal and will make a great impact.

Speaking to Goal.com, Michael Essien said “I know him, I have seen him play a couple of times and we do talk now and then. If he has any questions, he can always contact me for my thoughts – except when he plays Chelsea.”

He also wished the player and said Arsenal made a great signing.

“But I wish him well and I am looking forward to seeing him do very well for Arsenal. They have made a great signing by bringing my countryman to take on the Premier League. He is more of a typical No.6 than me. He is very good on the ball, wins duels, has good speed, reads the danger well and he is a very complete midfielder.” he said.

“When I arrived in England, Arsenal were very tough, with Gilberto Silva and a great midfield, so it was a tough team to play against. But I think the Arsenal I played towards the end of my career could have done with a player like Thomas Partey. I think it is a great move for him too, though. Arsenal is a great club. The Premier League is also brilliant, so it will help him to improve his game as well.” Michael Essien added.
