Former Ghanaian coach Grant talked about Thomas Partey in an interview with The Sun. He said: "Thomas is the player Arsenal needs."
Grant said in the interview: "I hope Arsenal can give him a few weeks to adapt to the Premier League. Even though there are many foreign players here, the style of play is still very different from other leagues."
"He will prove that he is a good signing, he fits Arteta's tactics. When you need him to hold the ball in a high position, he can do it, he fits Arteta's idea of building a team."
"He is a midfielder, he can win the ball and send the right pass, he can cover the court, and he is very disciplined."
"Like what he did at Atletico, he will have a significant impact on Arsenal. He is a very good signing, which is exactly what they need."
"Thomas usually doesn't have good days and bad days, because you know what he can do in every game, which is the best for him."
