Arsenal’s bid for Ben White backup was rejected as Edu was told to pay £21.7m

Arsenal’s bid for Ben White backup was rejected as Edu was told to pay £21.7m

Mikel Arteta seems intent on bolstering his right-back options this summer, despite Ben White’s remarkable performances. The 25-year-old defender was heavily criticized in his first season with Arsenal, but he has since become a club stalwart.

White, whose contract at the Emirates Stadium expires in 2026, has played in every Premier League encounter for the Gunners this season, helping them to 13 clean sheets.

While the England international’s role in the starting lineup may not be the most glamorous, it has allowed Bukayo Saka to spearhead a title charge.

Arteta is rumored to be in the market for a new right-back to keep White on his toes, given his desire to build upon London Colney’s remarkable progress.

The Spaniard is also preparing for the club’s first Champions League campaign since 2016/17, so Arsenal will undoubtedly require additional legs for the upcoming season.

According to Nevzat Dindar, Arsenal has offered Galatasaray €17 million (£14.7 million) for Sacha Boey. The 22-year-old defender’s future with the Turkish giants is becoming increasingly uncertain after he announced his intention to depart last month.

According to the report, Galatasaray is unwilling to let Boey depart for less than €25 million (£21.7 million) and is holding out for €25 million (£21.7 million). Erden Timur, vice-president of the Turkish organization, reportedly traveled to London earlier this week to discuss a prospective deal for the Frenchman.

Boey, whose contract in Istanbul has two years remaining, believes it is time for him to advance his career. In an interview with L’Equipe, he stated, “I’ve been through the ups and downs [with Galatasaray]. Currently, my performance is consistent.

I believe it’s time to turn a corner, but we’ll see what transpires at the end of the season.”

Despite the fact that Arsenal fans may be thrilled by the prospect of Boey’s arrival,thesoccerstand has learned that Cedric Soares intends to remain in north London and compete for a starting spot next season after receiving positive feedback from the club in recent weeks.

The 31-year-old would provide valuable Champions League experience, but his desire to remain throws a wrench into Arteta’s rebuilding efforts.
