Thomas Partey FIFA 21 became one of the most popular players in Ultimate Team after the Ghanaian midfielder completed a Transfer Deadline Day move to Arsenal.

Partey, one of the top midfielders in the world, left Atletico Madrid after Arsenal triggered his release clause. Arsenal fans finally got their guy, but Ultimate Team fans rejoiced at another great defensive midfield option for Premier League sides. Partey's 84 overall card is going for around 26,000 coins and currently hard links Marcus Llorente in the midfield.

His Atletico card will probably rise in value as he's no longer at the club.

Partey will receive an Arsenal card in FUT 21 eventually and he's also a favorite for the Ones to Watch promotion.

Ones to Watch cards are for players who transferred clubs. These items are live meaning they'll upgrade alongside every performance upgrade card players receive throughout the game's cycle. Partey isn't a guaranteed lock for multiple in-forms, but last year he received three including a TOTW Moments.

Partey offers links to players like Fabinho and N'Golo Kante while also hard linking Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe. Expect Partey to be a meta midfielder in the early stages of the game.

It's unknown if Partey will receive his OTW card, if at all, during the first or second window. Given how high profile the transfer was, he should be a favorite regardless.
