Arsenal close to the latest news about Ben White’s transfer, Isaac update, Calvert Lewin watching, Sterling and Mahrez transfer update
Good morning, Arsenal fans,
According to reports, the Gunners are about to reach a £50 million deal with Brighton defender Ben White.
According to The Athletic report, Arsenal have set their sights on the prospects of England and plan to negotiate before a possible transfer.
After Trent Alexander-Arnold withdrew due to injury, White was rewarded for his impressive performance in Brighton and won a place in the England team at the 2020 European Cup.
According to reports, Arsenal bid 40 million pounds for the 23-year-old player, but Brighton is determined to bid another 10 million pounds.
Defense is one of his main priorities. The versatile White can play right back, center or midfield, which is one of Arteta’s main goals.
After the Gunners missed European football for the first time in 25 years, Mikel Arteta wanted to transform his team.
At the same time, after the midfielder confirmed his future in Real Madrid, Arsenal missed the extension of Martin Odegard’s loan period.
He told TV2 in Norway: “Real Madrid knows they want me to come back. So when the training starts again, it’s time to go there.
“Of course, it has always been my dream to play there. I have been in the club for more than six years and this has always been my goal.
“I have always wanted to play, I have always said that. Playing hard is important.”
Finally, Arsenal defender Constantinos Mavropanos joined Stuttgart on loan for a season.
The Bundesliga team has paid a loan fee of £500,000 to bring him back to the club, which is also on loan for the 2020/21 season.
According to The Athletic report, Stuttgart has the option of a permanent transfer at a price of up to 5 million pounds.
If Mavropanos remains in the top league this season, they will become Stuttgart players.
They will be obliged to pay 3 million pounds for the defender, and the transaction also includes a bonus of up to 1.5 million pounds.
If the permanent transfer terms are activated, the 23-year-old player has agreed to a three-year contract.
