Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey is targeting Europa League success in his first season as he insists the north London side belongs to Champions League. 

Partey signed for Arsenal from Spanish side Atletico Madrid on transfer deadline day in October. The Gunners are still participating in the Europa League and continue to struggle in the Premier League as they lie 10th on the log, 12 points off the top four.

Should the Gunners miss out on the Champions League this season, it will be their fight champaign out of the UCL but Partey believes they should be playing in Europe’s elite club competition. 

“We know it is a club that is supposed to be in the Champions League,” said Partey. 

“It is a bad situation that we are in now, but it depends on us. We are the ones playing, we have this opportunity, we have to try and make this season better. Before we can get to where we want, we have to try and be able to win all the games.”

On winning the Europa League

“It is very important. It (Champions League football) attracts a lot of good players, it shows your profile also to the world, what you can do outside of the league.”

“And I think it is very important for the club, for the supporters, for all the people that are in the club – because this club belongs to the Champions League. We have to do our best, all that we can, to fight to get where we want.”

The Gunners will travel to Georgios Karaiskakis to face Olympiacos in the Europa League round of 16 first leg on Thursday evening.
