Ghana international Kasim Nuhu says he would be happy to see his close friend and room mate on international duty Thomas Partey play in “the best league in the world”.
Partey has been linked with move to Arsenal from Atletico Madrid while other reports have suggested Diego Simeone could use him as a hook to land Alex Oxlade Chamberlain from Liverpool.
Nuhu reckons whichever way the unfolding transfer drama ends, Partey will be the ultimate winner.
“Atletico Madrid is a very good club so he is playing one of the biggest clubs in the world and Arsenal is also one of the biggest,” Nuhu told TV3 in a live Instagram conversation anchored by Juliet Bawuah.
“For me, it is his decision because playing in Atletico Madrid is the same as playing in Arsenal. The two teams always make the same category in the league fighting for the 3rd and 4th place to play in Champions League but as we all know the Premiership is the best league in the world so if he joins Arsenal, I will be happy for him.”
Few know Partey as well as Nuhu does. The two are room mates on international duties and described as best friends.
They also played together at Real Mallorca in the early stages of their careers.
“He has been my friend for very long time and anything he does or choose we will support him and we will pray for him do that he will make us proud,” he added.
Should he or should he not?
