This comes as a surprise given Thomas Partey’s importance to Arsenal’s 2022/23 season. Partey helped the Gunners launch a genuine title push, but a slump in form saw them finish second.

Partey’s form did dip in April, but his overall performance this year was excellent.

With Arsenal now in the Champions League, Arteta is looking to strengthen his squad. Arsenal have been linked with Moises Caicedo and Declan Rice, with Hillier preferring the latter.

Speaking on the ‘Declan-Rice-links’ to Arsenal, David Hillier stated:

‘Partey is not one of them, do you know what I mean? A player like Rice with that mentality and upbringing he has the ability to go and be a legend, he can be that player, that’s’ the type of player Arsenal need to target. I would sign him in a heartbeat.’
