Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey has been the center of transfer interests from clubs such as Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea.
Arsenal are particularly keen on the Ghana international and were handed a boost when it was reported that Partey was looking to leave the La Liga this summer.
He has since then been advised against such a move as Ghana compatriot Nii Lamptey to continue plying his trade in La Liga, warning that there could be huge repercussions for a quick switch.
Speaking with Ocean 1 TV, Lamptey said:
“The country and league he will pick will determine his future, I would advise him to stay in Spain rather than going to England or Italy.
“Per style of play, he can move within Spain and join another top club rather than focusing on the financial gains to move out of the country because that can be suicidal.”
Asked about his own transfer move to the premier league in 1994/95, Lamptey sighted it as a forgettable experience adding that “Sometimes, decision making can destroy your career,”.
“My move to England was a wrong one for me. Aston Villa was a wrong move because their style of play was not going to suit me.
“If I had gone to France or Spain at that time, it would have helped my career more than going to England.”
