Brighton delighted with stunning business for White Arsenal sale

Brighton chiefs are delighted with the business done over the sale of Ben White to Arsenal.

The defender is set to join the Gunners on a five-year-deal after completing a two-day physical assessment at their London Colney training ground.

Arsenal had pursued the England defender, who was called up to Gareth Southgate's Euro 2020 squad, since the start of the summer but were met with resistance by Brighton over a transfer fee.

The Daily Express says the Seagulls eventually agreed to a hefty £50m fee for the player along with a sell-on clause which could see them earn an additional £20m.

The North Londoners initially bid £40million prior to Euro 2020 which was rejected, before their follow-up offer of £47million was also turned down.

It is likely that Brighton were aware of Arsenal's desperation in signing a replacement for David Luiz whose contract ran out this summer and were therefore confident in receiving more for the Englishman.
