'Arsenal will never cease to amaze me': Some Gunners fans left annoyed as outfit reject club's bid for 'average' 23 y/o
Some Arsenal fans have been left annoyed after the club had a £40m bid rejected for Ben White.
According to Sky Sports, the Seagulls rejected the offer from the Gunners with talks continuing.
The defender is keen on joining the outfit, according to football.london.
However, he won’t be cheap with Brighton reportedly demanding £50m for the England international.
Arsenal are set to wave goodbye to David Luiz, who is leaving at the end of this month.
Meanwhile, Mikel Arteta’s men will face Brentford on the opening day of the Premier League season.
TBR View: White bid a sign of Arteta’s defensive intention for Arsenal
It seems as though Mikel Arteta has highlighted the need for an external acquisition. This comes despite the presence of Rob Holding and William Saliba, who is returning from a loan spell with Nice.
The signing of Ben White may well add quality to the squad, however, with five centre-halves fighting for just two positions, it proves a woeful decision.
Arsenal failed to qualify for Europe last term, leaving just 38 Premier League games and a handful of cup outings.
The rejected bid for White is a woeful decision from Arsenal, however, signals Arteta’s intent moving forward.
Here is how fans reacted…
