“This (winning the title) is our new objective. That’s the objective of the club, of me myself and I think that we have to get back to where we belong.

“It’s something that is difficult and we all know that it’s difficult, but we’re working towards it and I think we are ready. We have to go all out and try to achieve all of that ourselves.”

Party could make his Arsenal debut in Saturday’s Premier League trip to Manchester City but he admits he needs to adjust to a new league and new team.

“I think there is no pressure on me,” he said. “I like to challenge myself, I like new challenges and it’s all about learning fast, learning quickly how it goes and you just get used to it and everything works.”
