Ex Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has rated Arsenal new signing Ben White ahead of Manchester United’s Raphael Varane.
White who is 23, completed his mega-money move to the north Londoners following the Euros this summer, having shone at Brighton last season and under Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds in 2019-20.
United are signing four-time Champions League winner Varane from Real Madrid this week.
“One thing I thought Arsenal missed was a defender like him,” Wright-Phillips told talkSPORT. “He’s got old an old-school mentality but he can play football as well.”
Asked if White will do better at Arsenal than Varane at United, he added: “Yes I personally do. I know it’s a big statement, but he is used to the Premier League and he is used to defending a lot for Brighton, week in, week out.
“Varane has come into a whole new league and he is going to put under immense pressure.”
