Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher and Fremchman William Gallas were two of several former Premier League stars who criticised the signing of Ben White at the start of the season, but the Englishman has been able to prove them wrong as part of an impressive Arsenal defence in the quest for a Champions League spot at the end of the season.
A lot of eyebrows were raised after Arsenal spent £50m to sign England international White from Brighton and Hove Albion last summer and his first game in an Arsenal shirt didn’t help matters. He produced an average performance as Arsenal were beaten 2-0 at newcomers Brentford on the opening day of the current Premier League campaign with the goals from Danish midfielder Christian Norgaard and SergiCanos. Speaking after the game, Liverpool legend Carragher questioned his quality via Sky Sports as he was delighted that the Reds didn’t sign him.Liverpool had been constantly linked with a move for White before the Gunners splashed the cash to sign him from Brighton.

Frenchman William Gallas was a big critic of Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta as he struggled last season. According to him, the appointment of Arteta was a mistake. William Gallas was largely proved right at the end of the season after Arteta failed to guide Arsenal to Europe for the first time in 25 years after his team finished in a disappointing eighth place in his first full season. Arteta and Arsenal had finished eighth in the previous season, but they were able to qualify for European football on that occasion after winning the FA Cup title.

Frenchman William Gallas didn’t win any major trophy for the Gunners during his four-year stay at the club. William Gallas is not a name that the Arsenal fans would forget in a hurry for various reasons. His most famous act as an Arsenal player was when he suffered a meltdown at the end of a Premier League encounter with hosts Birmingham City at the St. Andrew’s Stadium.
Arsenal have lost the chance to sign Manuel Locatelli after the player agreed to be transferred to Italian Serie A giants Juventus. The Italy international star was highly sought-after following the brilliant Euros campaign he had with his country at this year’s edition of the UEFA Euros competition. His brilliant performances did not go unnoticed as he started attracting a lot of interest from other clubs, causing his stock to rise and his transfer fee to increase significantly.

When Chelsea handed a huge amount of transfer funds to former manager Frank Lampard last summer, the essence was so that the manager could make player additions to the squad that will be highly beneficial to their plans of challenging for trophies in the coming season. Lampard then did his best on the transfer window to bring in the likes of Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz, Thiago Silva, and others as he looked to build a team, he thought would be capable of winning the Premier League title.
