Gallas uses Varane’s comparison to question Arsenal’s Ben White’s payout

Former Arsenal defender uses Varane's comparison to question Gunners' Ben White payout

Former Arsenal defender William Gallas on Thursday questioned the club’s hefty outlay on Ben White’s summer arrival.

The English White plug, of course, proved to be just one of many reinforcements for Mikel Arteta’s ranks during the recently closed transfer window.

As Arsenal continue their efforts to close the gap with the rest of the Premier League heavyweights, the Emirates board sanctioned the additions of all Brighton stars, Sambi Lokonga, Nuno Tavares, Aaron Ramsdale, Martin Odegaard and finally Takehiro Tomiyasu. .

Although the likes of Ramsdale and Tomiyasu have continued to impress, White has found the adaptation period in North London more challenging.

In its defense, the plug was forced to deal with an early bout of Covid-19.

But when he’s on the field, White hasn’t exactly turned the world on fire, with his shaky performance at Turf Moor last time causing widespread concern among the Arsenal faithful.

‘Hard to understand…’

While White, of course, still has plenty of time to improve in North London, the high expectations on his young shoulders come, of course, from the hefty sum that was finally forked for his signing in July.

Edu Gaspar and company. they are believed to have disbursed more than £ 50 million to their Brighton counterparts, a fee that caused more than a few eyebrows to be raised.

And, as described above, on Thursday, one of Arsenal’s former defenders joined the chorus of those who expressed concern about the financial compromise surrounding White.

The cap in question? William Gallas.

Speaking in an interview with GentingBet, former French international Gallas drew comparisons to the sum squandered by Manchester United to bring in Raphael Varane, questioning whether White had already proven himself worthy of such a big move:

“It is difficult for me to understand why Arsenal spent £ 50 million on a player who has yet to prove himself at the top tier and at the same time Manchester United can spend around £ 40 million on Varane.”

You have to explain to me how it is possible. Perhaps it is partly because Ben White is English.

‘Varane is a player of a different class compared to Ben White. Ben White is still young. Like I said, you haven’t tried anything yet. How can you price it at £ 50 million, you know?

Gallas continued:

‘I respect that. I don’t know him. I respect him and hope he’s a great player, but he hasn’t shown anything yet. Can’t compare to Ben White and Varane, sorry. It’s not possible.’

It is not because I am a French compatriot that I am speaking like that. He comes from Real Madrid. He did not come from Brighton, with all due respect to them.
