'Are you kidding me', 'don't want to believe it': Some Arsenal fans react to what the Daily Mail have reported
Arsenal fans have expressed their shock at the Daily Mail transfer report claiming Ben White could now cost the Gunners £55m.
The north Londoners have been linked with the Brighton and England defender for a number of weeks now.
Indeed, multiple reports have suggested that the two clubs are in talks over White.
However, Brighton certainly don’t seem to want him to go on the cheap.
Previous reports suggested White could cost Arsenal up to £50m.
However, the Daily Mail reported on Wednesday that Arsenal are “continuing discussions with Brighton over a £55million deal” for the defender.
Arsenal transfer talk: White “keen” to join – but is he too expensive?
Brighton are reportedly maintaining their stance of wanting £50million in guaranteed payments.
Talks between both clubs are continuing over the structure of the deal, added the report.
In addition, the England international is apparently keen to make the move to the Emirates.
Despite White’s quality, some Arsenal fans aren’t pleased to read about the fee reportedly creeping up.
And some supporters have taken to Twitter saying they feel £55m is too much for White.

£55m? Maybe Arsenal should let Arteta have his first choice Tapsoba?— Can you dig it, Saka? (@CanYouDigItSaka) June 30, 2021
I'd rather spend half that on an up and coming English CB a regular England U21.— 🔆❇️ David Williams ❇️🔆 (@DavidWilliams) June 30, 2021
