Encouraging signs in Arsenal’s pursuit of Ben White, Gunners ‘one step away’ from England international

Arsenal’s Ben White competition

Arsenal have been in pursuit of Brighton defender Ben White for the duration of the early stage of the transfer window.

The club has so far seen two bids rejected for the England international, including a most recent proposal improved from an initial £40 million bid.

Since then, the rumours surrounding a possible deal have grown very quiet, potential competition for Arsenal aside.

The most notable reports surrounded Chelsea, who were said to have been keeping tabs on the situation.

However, it now seems that Arsenal are indeed closing in on their man.

Arsenal ‘one step away’ from White

According to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Arsenal are just ‘one step away’ from completing a deal for White, having already agreed personal terms with the 23-year old.

Arsenal is going to pull off the first shot of his market. The gunners, in fact, are one step away from concluding the negotiations with Brighton for Ben White.

A £50 million operation for Arsenal that will soon welcome the player.

White will become the most expensive defender ever signed by the club, a title previously held by Shkodran Mustafi.

White also brings with him signs of a change in the direction of Arsenal’s transfer business – targeting players of a high calibre within the Premier League instead of continental options or surplus players from their EPL rivals.

This would be a very good sign of a positive change in direction when it comes to the recruitment of the Gunners.
