Arsenal reached a £50million agreement with Brighton & Hove Albion over the transfer of Ben White in this summer transfer window and the two clubs have not been able to announce this deal since the player was yet to do his medicals as he was still on holiday given to him after the end of The Euros. The deal is however finally close to completion as Ben White has finally had his medical.
Arsenal made signing a new centre back one of their main priorities in this summer transfer window and they have been swift in their approach for Ben White as they didn’t back off after Brighton & Hove Albion rejected their first bid of £40million but rather increased their offer until The Seagulls accepted.
Reputable Goal journalist Charles Watts has confirmed that Ben White arrived at the London Colney and did his medical ahead of his big money move to Arsenal. The Arsenal fans will now wait for an announcement to be done in the next couple of days as they usually come right after medicals, if everything goes well.
Ben White is a signing that has intrigued everyone and he will be under microscopic focus as many will want to see if he is the man who Arsenal has been waiting for to put their defence on the levels of the other current big clubs in the Premier League.
