Mikel Arteta Applauds Outstanding Performances: Arsenal’s Departure-Linked Players Earn High Praise.

Mikel Arteta Praises Resilient Arsenal Midfield Duo Amid Transfer Speculations.

In the midst of swirling transfer rumors, Arsenal’s manager, Mikel Arteta, has unequivocally lauded the talents of two Gunners players who have found themselves entangled in summer exit talks.

The midfield duo of Thomas Partey and Jorginho has been the subject of much speculation, but Arteta has made it clear that he intends to retain their services at the Emirates Stadium.

Speaking to CBS Sports, Arteta expressed his admiration for both players and hinted that they are crucial components of his future plans for the team.

Despite the ongoing transfer links, the Arsenal boss emphasized his desire to bring out the best in Partey and Jorginho as they continue to be an integral part of the Gunners’ midfield setup.


Partey, in particular, has been linked with moves to both the Saudi Pro League and Juventus. However, it appears that Arsenal is resolute in their stance and is not actively seeking to offload the Ghanaian midfielder.

On the other hand, Jorginho’s agent has refuted any notions of a summer departure, further solidifying the player’s position in North London.

Arteta’s praise wasn’t confined solely to the existing midfield options. He also spoke favorably about the newly acquired talent, Declan Rice.


The Arsenal head coach expressed his excitement at having three exceptional holding midfielders in Rice, Partey, and Jorginho, highlighting his affinity for playing with midfielders who possess remarkable skill sets.

“Now we have three very good holding midfielders, with him [Rice], Thomas, and Jorgi,” Arteta enthused.

“I have to fit them in because they are so good, and I love playing with midfielders! We’re thinking of a few ways to maximize their qualities and get the best out of them.”

The summer transfer window has been abuzz with rumors surrounding midfielders, with other Premier League clubs making moves to bolster their options.


Liverpool, for instance, faces the prospect of losing several midfield players, necessitating potential reinforcements.

In contrast, Arsenal seems to be steadier in their approach, having made one significant midfield signing and showing determination to hold on to their valuable assets.

As the new season looms, Gunners fans will surely be relieved to hear Arteta’s affirmations regarding Partey and Jorginho’s future at the club.

The manager’s resolute stance indicates that the midfield duo will remain an essential part of Arsenal’s setup, providing stability and strength in the heart of the team.

As the club prepares for the challenges ahead, let’s hope that the focus remains on the pitch, and disruptions are kept to a minimum.

Arteta’s comments certainly suggest that he sees both players as integral cogs in his well-oiled machine.
