The former Seagull is understood to have set the north London outfit back a fee of £50m.
Despite only signing on the Friday, White was handed his first Arsenal minutes just two days later in a pre-season meeting with Chelsea.
White would come off the bench to make an instant impact, stopping Hakim Ziyech’s goal-bound effort with a great block.
It didn’t take him long to impress!
That’s a heroic block on the line to deny Ziyech from close range 👏

Ben White’s agent on Arsenal’s scouting
And with the Premier League season now less than a week away, Arsenal fans are no doubt very excited to see their latest signing start his first tie for the club.
Following his transfer to the Emirates, Ben White’s agent has been speaking out about the north Londoners’ interest in his client.
When doing so, White’s agent spoke about Arsenal’s scouting, praising the club for how much detail they put into scouting players they are going to sign:
“Arsenal have always had a long-term interest in Ben.
“The way he plays is very conducive with the way that Arsenal like to play, and it was very fascinating the attention to detail that Arsenal put into scouting the players that they are going to sign, whether that would be artificial attention, data analysis or video analysis – it’s all very impressive.
“So, they were very consistent with wanting Ben.”
