After what has felt like months of speculation, Ben White is finally an Arsenal player.
The defender was announced as a Gunner on Friday, and as you can imagine, the announcement of this long-awaited signing sparked something of a reaction amongst the fanbase.
It’s fair to say that Arsenal fans were buzzing with this arrival, and they have every right to be.
For far too long, Arsenal’s defence has been one of their biggest weaknesses, and it seems as though the addition of a £50m defender could solve that issue.
White, at the age of 23, also has a lot of room to improve, and his ability to play the ball out from the defence could make him perfect for Mikel Arteta’s system.
Arsenal fans have been waiting for this announcement for quite some time, and now that the Gunners have finally unveiled White there has been an outpouring of excitement on social media.
Here’s what Arsenal supporters have been saying…
