Because of his chronic injury problems, many Arsenal fans have grown more irritated with Thomas Partey.
Mikel Arteta revealed the latest setback, which is anticipated to keep the Arsenal midfielder out for several weeks.
Partey’s unlucky injury trend has become the norm during his time at the Emirates Stadium.
He has had big injury lay-offs since his £45 million purchase from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2020, and these instances are becoming more frequent.
The Ghanaian has only made four Premier League appearances this season and hasn’t played for the North London club since coming off the bench late in a match against Manchester City.
When he’s fit and in form, there’s no questioning Partey’s ability as an outstanding midfielder. His fitness concerns, on the other hand, have become so common that they have become a burden on the club. Arteta may want to consider moving on from Partey.
Many Arsenal supporters are now calling for Thomas Partey to be sold. Their dissatisfaction can be seen on social media, with one fan forcefully writing, “Get him out of my club,” and another expressing dismay in Partey’s injury record, referring to him as “absolutely class but made of glass.”
Some supporters are asking the team to sell Partey as soon as possible, with one saying, “time to sell, hopefully it happens as soon as January.” Another admirer believes Arteta erred by not releasing Partey sooner, noting, “I was saying this in the summer window.” He’s untrustworthy, and we should have cashed out.”
Arteta is certainly dissatisfied with the scant use he has had from Partey this season, which is especially alarming given the upcoming African Cup of Nations.
Partey will be called up to represent his country at the event, assuming he is physically fit. Even if Arsenal were willing to sell the player, a buyer may be difficult to find due to his fitness record and salary demands.
