Arsenal have officially unveiled new signing Ben White who joined from Brighton And Hove Albion for €50 million, MySportDab reports.
The defender has been impressive in the English Premier League, which have seen him getting interest from top clubs.
Ben White is now an Arsenal player after his unveiling by the club which he joined for €50 million from Brighten And Hove Albion.
Clubs like Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United were linked with a move but all didn’t make an approach to sign him.
Arsenal were the only side who showed strong interest as their first bid was rejected by Brighton And Hove Albion who wanted more.
A €50 million offer was made and it got accepted after the player had already agreed on personal terms with the Gunners.
The Club is full of praises and admiration for the defender as the technical director of the club and manager had some few words to share.
Here Is What Arsenal Technical Director Edu Had To Say:
“Ben has been a key target this summer. He has so many qualities which make us so excited he’s joining us.
Ben’s a young English player with a great future. He’s very strong defensively, good on the ball with a great passing range.
We’re delighted Ben’s signed and we look forward to him growing with us.”
Here Is What Arsenal Manager Mikel Arteta Had To Say:
“Ben was a top target for us and it’s great that we’ve completed his signing. Ben has been educated with two very good clubs, Brighton and Leeds, in recent seasons.
He has benefitted well from two very good coaching set-ups and has shown with both Brighton and on loan with Leeds what a strong talent he is.
“Ben is an intelligent defender who is very comfortable with the ball at his feet and his style fits perfectly with us.
And of course, he is still young, so his age and profile fits with what we are building here. We are all looking forward to Ben being central to our future long-term plans.
The Gunners are doing big things in the transfer market as they keep on bringing in new players to reshape the squad that was very poor last season.
