In a bid to strengthen up their team, Premier League giants Arsenal has been scouring the transfer market for potential players that could transform the team in the coming season. 

They are currently eyeing Brighton & Hove Albion star Ben White, who is believed to have everything he needs to become a top-level player, according to Gunners legend David Seaman via best CA online casino.

The Brighton defender has been heavily involved in the transfer market this summer, as Arsenal were reported to have already tabled a bid of £40 million for the centre-back but was rejected by Brighton.

The report has it that the North London team will be returning to talks with an improved offer for the England international, who spent a year on loan at Leeds United for the 2019/20 season, and Seaman believes that the defender will be a great addition to Mikel Arteta’s team.

Speaking to the media regarding the possibility of Arsenal landing the 23-year-old defender during the summer transfer window, Seaman said: “He’s got everything [needed] to go and take hold of it and give it his best shot.

“He’s got the physique, he’s got the temperament. At Leeds it’s a high-press, high-tempo game, so his fitness is also not in doubt.

“The only question mark you can put on him is can he play in the big games? But we’ll just have to wait and see, because he’s not played in them yet.

“Hopefully he will go on and play for England and when he does that, hopefully he will carry on [with his development].

“Would he be a good signing for Arsenal? Of course he would because he’s a good player.”

There were many concerns regarding Arsenal’s decision to spend up to £50 million on a defender that has only played a single season in the Premier League. 

Seaman, on the other hand, says that his age and little experience should not be seen as an issue while referencing talented young players in the top-flight league.

When asked if White was too inexperienced to land a big-money move to Emirates Stadium, the former Arsenal goalkeeper said via online pokies: “No, not at all, not now.

“It’s like when you see the England team now, you look at Mason Mount and Phil Foden, those sort of guys. They are young guys and they are just getting on with it.

“At that age, they just have no fear. They just want to play and enjoy it.

“It’s when they get a little bit older and they’ve had a bit of stick that they start worrying.”

The Gunners’ 2020/21 campaign was plagued with several flaws as they had to deal with injuries, inconsistencies and defence loopholes. With no silverware to show for, they finished eighth on the Premier League table. 

With a new season in sight, Arteta will not be hoping for that same experience once again for the 2021/22 campaign and they will be looking to return with strength.
