Arsenal technical director Edu has revealed the club are 'hungry' for their first Premier League title since 2004 after completing the swoop of Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey.

The Ghana international joined the north London side on transfer deadline day on Monday after they triggered the £45million release clause in his contract with the Spanish outfit.

The 27-year-old joined centre-back Gabriel Magalhaes, winger Willian, midfielder Dani Ceballos and goalkeeper Runar Alex Runarsson in joining the club in the summer transfer window as the Gunners splashed £90million to help boss Mikel Arteta following last season's FA Cup win.

And speaking to Arsenal's official website, Invincible Edu claimed his side - having signed Partey after seven months of groundwork - are now hungry to challenge for the title with their new 'quality' additions.
