Partey, 27, joined Arsenal from Atletico Madrid during the summer after the Gunners opted to activate his £45m minimum release clause, as per Transfermarkt.

Despite joining the London based club nearly four-months ago, Partey has only managed to feature in six matches in all competitions, his latest being during his side’s 2-0 defeat to Spurs last weekend.

Unfortunately for the talented midfielder, he substained an injury and was forced off during the first-half.

Partey has since confirmed his injury blow in a recent Instagram post with the caption: “Being part of the Arsenal family is something incredible for me, since the day I arrived I have felt so supported. The coach had a great influence in my decision to join this team and even though we had some bad results I know we are building something good together. I have had the bad luck to suffer an injury but I hope I can play again soon and fight for this team.”
