Posted by

Arsenal fans will be itching for an official transfer announcement as social media has been swept by an image of Ben White leaving the club’s London Colney training ground as he finalises a transfer.

Sky Sports reported earlier that White’s medical would take place on Wednesday as the centre-back appears to have finalised his £50m switch, which also sees Brighton hold on to a sell-on clause.

The viral snap of White driving outside of Arsenal’s base has been quote tweeted by the Gunners’ chief reporter for Football.London, Chris Wheatley, who tagged on the ‘soon’ and ‘signing’ emojis.

Charles Watts of Goal has since taken to social media to confirm that White was at Colney today to finalise his move, so perhaps every remaining detail has been sorted out, as well as a medical.

White has went from strength to strength since his breakout loan campaign with Leeds in 19/20, the ace returned to play a starting role for Brighton in the Premier League last season and the 23-year-old’s  displays have seen him break into the England squad.

The centre-back, who can also operate in midfield, debuted for the Three Lions this summer before earning a spot in the squad for the Euros, though the ace never made an appearance in the tournament.

Mikel Arteta has landed a big-money signing that fans will be hoping can finally transform what has been a shaky defensive line for Arsenal for years.

  1. As much as Coah Arteta is making serious effort at rebuilding and rejuvenating our downtrodden club, I would in earnest request him to please leave out Alex Lacazette. He look into his potential as a striker and unlock it. Without prejudice to Auba, he is better. There is nothing amis having up to 5 quality strikers with the addition of Tammy Abraham and Lautaro Martinez to Laca, Auba, Gabriel Martinelli, Nicolas Pepe, Saka et al. I will urge Arteta and Edu to add more strenght in the midfield with the acquisition of James Madison, Martin Odegaard, Ruben Neves, Houssem Aouar to make us dreaded. Not being on the international arena shouldn’t be a hitch to acquiring these players as Chelsea regained their absence in CL & Ueropa by winning the EPL either in 2015, 2016 or 2017.

  2. Arsenal and arteta shuld not be too comfortable or carried away with pre-seasons, More solid transfers pls!
