'You've really got to laugh': Some Crystal Palace fans react to transfer news involving Arsenal
Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to react after The Athletic revealed that Arsenal had agreed a £50m deal with Brighton for Ben White.
What’s the story?
Well, you might be wondering why this news concerns Crystal Palace.
As it happens, a number of Crystal Palace fans have taken pride in their own transfer dealings after hearing about the £50m fee.
Some fans below brought up the fact Dougie Freedman has been able to sign Eberechi Eze, Michael Olise and, by the looks of it, Marc Guehi for less.
To land three players of that quality for under £50m is fantastic work from the south Londoners.
Arsenal need Ben White, badly
All jokes aside, it is a fair bit of cash, but Arsenal need White.
After losing David Luiz – who was arguably Mikel Arteta’s best ball-playing centre-back – the Gunners had to sign a replacement.
In White, Arteta has the ideal man for the way he wants to play.
The England international is an exquisite passer, and is also strong in the tackle – he likes to press high as well, so he wins the ball in great areas.
In this day and age, a 23-year-old centre-back with Premier League and international experience is always going to be pricey.
Let’s see what the Crystal Palace fans on Twitter have been saying about Arsenal’s transfer dealings…
