PB, JB and Pet debate the imminent £50million signing of Ben White. We look at his strengths, weaknesses, what it means for our other central defenders and why Arsenal look set to invest so heavily in him. Listen below and remember to subscribe on Apple and Spotify.
Arsenal fans appear a bit divided on White. Most can see the players quality, but the potential price tag coupled with the other areas Arsenal really need to strengthen this summer, put question marks over any deal.
It’s possible that Arteta considers lack of Premier League experience a problem in the current Arsenal defenders. Mari and Gabriel only have limited experience, whilst Saliba is yet to feature in the English league. White would bring with him both potential but also plenty of experience of playing in England.
