Ex Manchester City and Leeds United star Danny Mills has stated that England and Brighton defender Ben White is too good to be an Arsenal player.
The north Londoners are reportedly inches away from closing in on a £50m deal for the 23-year-old centre-back.
But Mills is shocked that White is joining Arsenal, believing Manchester United should have gone for his signature.
“The only thing I am surprised at is Ben White has gone to Arsenal,” Mills told talkSPORT, as quoted by the Metro.
“Let’s assume that he will be at Arsenal for two or three years at least before he goes somewhere else. I just think he is better than that.”
Asked why White should have gone somewhere else, Mills continued: “Because he has got a better chance of winning things. What is he going to win at Arsenal? League Cup, if he is lucky. Maybe the FA Cup.
“I think he is an exceptional player and I think he is a fantastic signing for Arsenal. I am just a little bit surprised that Manchester United, who are looking for a centre-half, haven’t come in for him.”
