Arsenal and Brighton have reached an agreement on the £50 million signing of Ben White.
According to The Sun, White has accepted personal terms with Arsenal and is poised to sign a five-year contract, subject to a physical, making him Arsenal’s most expensive defender ever.
After following White for quite some time, Mikel Arteta has finally gotten his man. Last month, Brighton turned down a £40 million deal for the 23-year-old, as well as Arsenal’s follow-up offer of £45 million plus add-ons.
While numerous other clubs were interested in White, including Chelsea, Everton, Manchester United, Liverpool, and Tottenham, Arsenal is believed to be the only one to make an official bid for him. White’s career has taken off this season, with the Seagull earning a late call-up to England’s Euro 2020 squad by Gareth Southgate.
