Chelsea told to snub Arsenal target in this summer window

Danny Murphy believes Chelsea should have gone for Ben White.

The 23-year old has agreed on a £50million transfer to Arsenal who has been one of the consistent defenders in the Premier League last term.

He is set to become a part of Arteta’s XI and Danny Murphy was surprised that Chelsea did not make a move for the Brighton defender.

‘Ultimately, as a player, you can only make a decision based on the opportunity in front of you,’ Murphy told talkSPORT.

‘If I’m Ben White, I’m going to Arsenal, because they are the ones after me and it’s a step up, it’s a huge club.

‘It’s a massive opportunity because he will play every week, it’s a great environment to play your football and a better environment than Brighton.

‘Is it a progression in his career? Yes it is. It’s easy to look at last season and think Arsenal won’t be competitive. But they could get into the top-four next season.

‘You can only move to a club that wants you. I agree that his quality and potential is really good and I’m surprised that Manchester United or Chelsea haven’t come in for him.’
