Some Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter are reacting to Arsenal’s deal to sign Ben White.
Arsenal finally announced on Friday that they had signed the England international in a £50 million transfer.
It took a while for the Gunners to get it over the line and their North London rivals Tottenham are experiencing something similar with Cristian Romero at the moment.
The Atalanta centre-back is heavily linked with a move to Spurs.
Fabrizio Romano revealed on Thursday that the Lilywhites were refusing to pay the additional £9 million needed to sign the Argentina international.
Here’s how some Tottenham fans reacted to Arsenal’s deal for the former Brighton defender.
There’s a lot of pressure on Tottenham to get it over the line.
That’s because Daniel Levy has just gotten rid of long-serving defender Toby Alderweireld who, despite being 32, was still the club’s best centre-back by a distance.
With Spurs kicking off their Premier League campaign against champions Manchester City in two weeks, Nuno Espirito Santo won’t want to be forced to use Davinson Sanchez and Eric Dier at the heart of his defence.
Neither of those are bad players, but they are slightly error prone as a duo and Pep Guardiola’s side could tear them to shreds on the opening weekend.
