Ben White to undergo Arsenal medical ahead of record transfer

Sun 25 July 2021 | 20:20

Ben White will undergo his Arsenal medical on Wednesday after the Gunners completed the signing of Brighton center-back for £50m last week.

The

Brighton

center-back is the chosen one by the Gunners as they look for a replacement for

David Luiz

following the Brazilian's release at the end of last month.

According to a report from

Sky Sports News

, the North London club’s first two offers for the 23-year-old defender were rejected before Brighton finally agreed to the £50m fee.

It has been reported that White is ready to undergo his

Arsenal

medical on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old was part of Gareth Southgate’s 26-men squad for England's Euro 2020 campaign and played in the two warm-up games against Austria and Romania before the start of the tournament.

The England international joined the Seagulls in 2014 from

Southampton

and has made 41 appearances for the club across all competitions.

Two players,

Nuno Tavares

from

Benfica

and

Albert Sambi Lokonga

from

Anderlecht

, have already been signed, and Ben White is Arsenal’s third summer signing.
