Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Ben White following weeks of intense speculation.
And reported Gunners target Yves Bissouma is one of many who have wished the 23-year-old well.
The Gunners have reportedly paid £50million to sign White from Brighton.
The England international has penned a five-year deal at the Emirates Stadium, with the option of another year.

And Bissouma – his now-former teammate at Brighton – responded with a five-word message:
In June, football.london reported that Bissouma had instructed his agent to try and get him to Arsenal.
The same outlet claimed in January that the Gunners had made contact with Bissouma’s representatives.
The Athletic claimed in April that Bissouma has a £40million price tag.
