AS Roma joins the race for Arsenal defensive target

Jose Mourinho is set to raid the Premier League for players he can sign for AS Roma after being named the manager of the Italian side.

The Special One bagged the Italian job less than three weeks after being fired as the manager of Tottenham.

He is tasked with turning Roma into a top Italian team again and he will need help from some EPL players.

He is now looking to beat Arsenal to the signature of Brighton’s Ben White.

The Gunners are facing an important summer that should see them strengthen their squad and one player that they want to sign is White

He has been in fantastic form for the Seagulls since he returned from his loan spell at Leeds United last summer.

Arsenal is still struggling in defence and they are expected to sign a new centre-back when the transfer window reopens.

White could be the perfect replacement for David Luiz, who is expected to leave the club at the end of this season.

Sun Sports says Mourinho has told Roma that they need to strengthen the defence and wants White.

The report states that Brighton is aware of the serious interest in his signature and they have placed a £45million valuation on him.

  1. We have missed the boat with White I’m afraid, just as we did when Konsa and Godfrey were with Brentford and Norwich .These three guys have an asset which none of our current centre backs have, namely real pace.One of the reasons why we failed to match Chelsea yesterday in terms of possession was because our back three are obliged to play deep because they do not have the pace to recover.Until we get in some pace at the back we are never going to dominate games like others like Man City and Leeds.Holding has had a very decent season in my opinion but I very much doubt if Mari and Gabriel will be successful in the Premier League.Ironically, both Saliba and Mavroponas are quick!
