Arsenal defender Ben White is starting to show his true value for the club this season. His brilliant performances have helped the club win matches.

Hence, he was selected for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar starting next week. Therefore, the Gunners fans will be keeping a close eye on his performances.

THE IMPACT OF BEN WHITE AT ARSENAL

Arsenal signed Ben White from Brighton for 50 million in last season’s summer transfer window. However, many neutral fans felt that the Gunners should have spent it on a more experienced defender. Although, the defender proved everyone wrong. He immediately settled brilliantly with Arteta’s system. Hence, he was one of the first names on the team sheet last season.

Many thought that after the emergence of William Saliba this season, Ben White will have more appearances from the bench. However, Mikel Arteta decided to turn him into a right-back from the first Premier League game against Crystal Palace. Since then Ben White has not put wrong in his new position. Therefore, the price of 50 million for Ben White looks like a bargain for Arsenal.

ENGLAND NATIONAL TEAM WILL BENEFIT FROM THE DEFENDER’S VERSATILITY AT THE WORLD CUP

Ben White’s brilliant performances for Arsenal also helped him get selected for the team for the World Cup. Hence, Gareth Southgate will surely benefit from the versatility of the defender. Southgate is aware that he can use Ben White in center-back and right-back. Hence, his playing comfortably in multiple positions also helps him play in any formation applied by the England manager.

The England national team currently only have Kieran Trippier as their only fit right-back. Kyle Walker is currently recovering from a long-term injury. Hence, he is a major doubt for the opening game against Iran. Therefore, having Ben White as a backup option for the right-back position would be beneficial. Therefore, it looks like he will get a good amount of game time for the national team.

Arsenal will hope that he continues to put in brilliant performances for the national team. His brilliant performances will make it clear that Arteta is training his players with ambition and dedication. Hence, this will impress the potential January transfer targets.
