The father of Thomas Partey admits the Arsenal signing could easily have joined Chelsea.

Partey’s father Jacob has confirmed that the Blues were interested in his son as he considered his options at Atletico Madrid.

“We actually weren’t disturbed by anything because we hoped a bigger team will come for Partey,” he told Joy Online.

“We were aware of the [other teams that were interested]: Juventus, Chelsea and so forth. So about all these we knew God was with us.

“From that minute we started to dance to ‘Party after Party’.”

Partey senior admitted he was very busy after the news his son was joining Arsenal.

“It wasn’t easy! I wondered if I was the Vice President,” he said.

“The calls were successive from FM stations and others but I made sure to respond to all and my wife prepared some banku and okro soup for our celebration.”
