‘More Complete’ ‘Higher Grade’ Some Arsenal Fans Think Their New 45M Signing Is Better Than Kante

Thomas Partey has only just been unveiled in an Arsenal shirt but some are already hailing him as a better player than Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante.

It’s a bold claim, considering Kante has won the World Cup, as well as two Premier League titles with two different teams, but fans on Twitter are confident that Partey will more than live up to his £45m price tag:

There were, however, some supporters who were slightly more measured in comparing Partey with Kante:

It should be pointed out that the two players are not exactly like for like in terms of what they bring to the table. Partey is more physically imposing and prefers to dribble on the ball, in addition to having some excellent defensive attributes.

In contrast, Kante is best used in a holding midfield role where he can tackle, intercept and set up attacks. Unlike Partey, his most notable quality is the amount of ground he covers. People can make up their own minds when they see Arsenal’s new recruit in action against Manchester City this weekend.
