Another closed signing of Arsenal: it already adds 84M €

The London club have announced the transfer of Brighton central defender Ben White for € 58m. Those of Arteta will not play the Champions League.


Arsenal have made their third signing of the summer official. The London club has just announced the addition of Ben White. The 23-year-old English international defender will wear the Gunners' number four. As revealed by the BBC, the transfer with Brighton has been closed at 50 million pounds, just over 58 million euros fixed. In this way, if a few days ago Manchester United made official the transfer of Rafa Varane, another central defender, for an amount of about 50 million euros, now Arsenal has spent a little more on this promising defense.

It is one more proof that money continues to circulate in the Premier. In addition to Varane, United closed Sancho for about 85 million euros. For Arsenal it is the third signing already. 8 million was spent on Nuno Tavares and 18 more on Lokonga. Now it's been 58 at Ben White. The central was one of Arteta's requests. "Ben was a big target for us and it's great that we completed his signing. Ben has been educated at two very good clubs, Brighton and Leeds, in recent seasons. He has benefited well from the work of two very good coaches and has shown both with Brighton and when he has been on loan at Leeds the great talent that he is ", Arteta explained on the Arsenal website.

The London club had released David Luiz, who ended his contract and will play in Turkey. He had Ben White flagged as a priority in the market and has paid for it. This ensures one of the English centrals with the most future and reinforces a line that Edu, the sports director, was clear that he had to ensure. Arsenal will not play in the Champions League next season, but they have already invested 84 million in this summer market.
