Arsenal make official £40 million bid for 23-year-old Premier League star!

Arsenal are slowly starting to show some real intent this summer as they have submitted another bid for one of their top targets.

Whilst priorities lie further up the pitch, Arsenal want to sign a top class centre back to replace the absence of Mustafi, Sokratis and Luiz, all of whom have left the club.

The man at the top of that list seems to be Brighton’s Ben White, who as first reported by David Ornstein, Arsenal had been preparing a bid for.

Previous reports suggested a deal would cost between £40 million and £50 million.

Arsenal, according to Sky, have just had a £40 million bid rejected, suggesting Brighton will be holding out for £50 million.

Whereas, other reports suggest Arsenal would be prepared to include Eddie Nketiah in a deal for White.

Regardless, I do believe it would be a good signing. People have complained that it might stunt the growth of Saliba, but Saliba will need time to settle in and find his feet in the Premier League. £50 million does seem quite steep, but I am going to trust that it means Arteta will still have plenty of backing to sign players in other key areas. If not, I can’t see the sense in this signing, so let’s just hope.
