Chelsea praised for Silva signing

Noel Whelan insists that Arsenal target Ben White will choose to go to Chelsea if the Blues become serious about their interest in his signature.

After making that move to Brighton just a couple of transfer windows ago, White has developed into a very exciting Premier League defender that all the big clubs are reportedly interested in signing.

It has been reported on many occasions that Arsenal are ready to pay that £50 million asking price and take the Englishman to the Emirates, as they are keen to bolster that back-line.

However, there has also been some talk that we are ready to swoop in and make him their long-term replacement for Thiago Silva, and have even contacted his agents about whether or not he would be interested in a move to the Bridge, according to reports.

Now Whelan has claimed that he is convinced that White will choose to move to Stamford Bridge if he had the chance, He told Football Insider: “If you give Ben White the option of Arsenal or Chelsea right now, he is going to choose Chelsea because they are playing Champions League football.

“They are the Champions League winners and a club going from strength to strength under Thomas Tuchel. The squad is superior and they are in the Champions League. Right now, Chelsea are ahead in every aspect.

“As a player you have to look at where you would be more successful. Chelsea are one of the top clubs in Europe right now so given the choice, I’m sure White would rather go to Chelsea.”
