​Sol Campbell expresses concerns over Arsenal move for Brighton star White

Arsenal legend Sol Campbell has spoken about his misgivings regarding the club's big money move for Ben White.

The 23-year-old English defender is set to sign for the Gunners this week from Brighton and Hove Albion for a fee of roughly £50 million.

White Campbell is impressed with young White as a defender, he has concerns about the transfer fee.

Speaking on talkSPORT, he said: "It needs to work out because Arsenal are not in the position to shift out £50m for a player. He'll definitely have to start.

"If it does happen and the medical is all good, he'll have to hit the ground running. It's a difficult one, it's a lot of money.

"They're looking at the years ahead and they see a future. He can play in midfield or as a full-back.

"At £50m, you've got to be the master of your position."
