'Complete': After Lokonga and Tavares, Arsenal have now sealed third signing - journalist claims
Arsenal have Ben White’s deal sealed and wrapped up, according to Chris Wheatley on Instagram.
Reports have claimed that Arsenal are close to landing White from Brighton & Hove Albion, and Wheatley has now confirmed that the deal is as good as wrapped up.
That looks like good news for Arsenal, who are now closing in on three potential new signings.
Goal have reported how both Albert Sambi Lokonga and Nuno Tavares are both on the verge of moves to the Emirates Stadium.
And it appears that White is now set to join them in North London after Euro 2020 finishes.
The Arsenal target is part of the England squad currently and while the tournament progresses, he will remain focused on Three Lions duty, despite not appearing so far.
Biggest signing of the summer?
White may actually be Arsenal’s most expensive purchase this summer, given the £50 million fee which is said to be involved in completing a transfer.
The sum really does highlight the faith that both Arsenal and Mikel Arteta must have in White.
The central defender has only played one year of Premier League football, but at the age of 23 he has plenty of years ahead of him – and he will surely arrive at Arsenal as a guaranteed starter in their backline.
