Arsenal have signed Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid in a last minute deal worth £45 million ($58 million).

The Gunners had retained interest in Partey all summer. With Lucas Torreira finalizing a loan move to Atletico in a separate transaction and Matteo Guendouzi joining Hertha Berlin on loan, the space was freed for Partey to complete a dramatic deadline day switch.

Partey has signed a four-year contract with an option for a further year and will earn approximately £250,000 per week.
