On 15 October 2020, Premier League club Arsenal announced the signing of Partey on a long-term contract, after activating his £45 million (€50 million) release clause with Atlético Madrid. He was given the number 18 shirt, which had been vacated by Nacho Monreal the previous season.[26] Upon signing, Partey stated his desire to help Arsenal “back where [they] belong”, describing his decision to move being based on “[wanting] to experience new challenges”, while also crediting the transfer to manager Mikel Arteta and technical director Edu.

In May 2016, Partey was called up for the first time to the Ghana national team by manager Avram Grant, ahead of a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualification match against Mauritius. He made his debut on 5 June, replacing Frank Acheampong for the final 11 minutes of a 2–0 away win that booked the Black Stars’ position in the finals. On 5 September 2017, Partey scored his first international hat-trick in a 5–1 win against Congo in 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification.

Partey won Ghana Player of the Year in 2018 and 2019. Ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, as well for qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Partey was named Ghana’s vice-captain.
