Robinson announces ‘he is gutted’ that £50 million star is heading to Arsenal this summer

Paul Robinson has admitted that he is “gutted” Arsenal are closing in on the signing of Ben White.

After David Luiz left the club after failing to agree a new contract at the Emirates, rumours have surfaced over the past few days suggesting that Arsenal are very keen to wrap up a transfer deal for White.

White is one of the most highly-rated defenders in the Premier League and has been linked with some big moves for well over 12 months now, but the latest reports in the media suggest that Arsenal are closing in on a £50 million deal for White.

But amid the speculation, Robinson has admitted that he is “gutted” Arsenal are closing in on the signing of of the defender, He told Football Insider: “I would have liked both of my old clubs Leeds and Tottenham to have gone in for Ben White.

“They are missing out on a top-class player. I have been banging Ben White’s drum for a long time now.

“If he goes to Arsenal he is going to be missing out on playing Champions League football.

“I’m sure there is clubs in the Champions League who would be interested in a player like Ben White.

“Arsenal would not be my first choice if I was him. Logistically the move may work for him but a player of his quality should be playing at the highest level.

“He is definitely good enough to play in the Champions League. Is he realistically going to get to play in the Champions League with Arsenal?”


Robinson may be gutted, but he would be a brilliant signing for the Arsenal
