Some Arsenal fans on Twitter believe that Thomas Partey has dropped a major clue about moving to North London.

Partey to Arsenal has been on the cards since way back in March, when The Telegraph claimed that the Gunners were keen on the Ghanaian midfielder.

A swap deal has been mooted in recent months, but reported this week that Atletico Madrid want every penny of his £45 million release clause, a claim backed up by Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.

The Emirates Stadium outfit completed a second season-long loan deal for Dani Ceballos on Friday, turning the emphasis toward Partey ahead of their Premier League opener with Fulham on Saturday.

It isn’t iron-clad confirmation that he’s bound for England, but it’s a clear indication that the speculation about him joining is Arsenal is absolutely real.

And here’s how their fans reacted to Partey’s social media gesture on Twitter:
