Brighton and Hove Albion star Adam Webster has heaped praise on his teammate Ben White amid rumours he’s on his way to join Arsenal in the coming days.
It looks like it’s only a matter of time before the Englishman becomes a Gunner, and Arsenal fans are beyond excited. White is one of the most promising defenders in the country and he has made a real name for himself over the last two years.
The 23-year-old had a phenomenal season on loan at Leeds in the 2019/20 campaign. He helped Marcelo Bielsa’s side achieve promotion, before returning to Brighton and having an even better season in the Premier League at the Amex.
Mikel Arteta seems to have watched him closely and he is certain that the Englishman would be perfect for Arsenal. As a result, the Gunners have agreed to splash £50 million for White, and he is set to have a medical later this week. (Sky Sports)
Adam Webster: Nothing fazes Arsenal target Ben White
Webster knows White really well thanks to their time together at Brighton. He was asked about the 23-year-old on TalkSport (Sunday, 06:10 pm), and he believes that the defender will only get better in the coming years.

He said: “I think he has got so much ability, he has got so much potential.
“He is still only 23-24, he has still got a lot of years ahead of him. To do what he has done, obviously, every year he has kicked on and progressed – from League Two to League One to the Championship and then last year in the Premier League and then playing for England.
“He takes all in his stride and nothing fazes him whatsoever.”
White is set to be a Gunner very soon and it will be interesting to see how settles in. His talent and quality are unquestionable, but he will only have a couple of weeks of training before the new Premier League season starts, which might make things difficult for him to hit the ground running.
However, in the long run, there’s no doubt that he will be a huge success for Arsenal and England.
