Official Arsenal Football Transfer

The Belgian is only 21-years-of-age but has already made 78 appearances for his boyhood club, captaining them on 26 occasions.

Albert will wear the No 23 shirt and have the name Sambi on the back.

The deal however, seemed to take an age to get over the line due to a number of unforeseen setbacks, but having finally secured the transfer the Gunners' latest acquisition revealed that he was delighted to have made the move.

The midfielder will join up with his new team-mates in the coming days after he has completed the current isolation regulations for international arrivals into the UK.

Sambi will working under a former Arsenal captain in Arteta, but he has already had experience of training with a former Gunners skipper. While away with the Belgian national team he was coached by Thierry Henry.

White will become the latest addition to Mikel Arteta's first-team squad and bolster the Spaniard's central defensive options that already include Rob Holding, Pablo Mari and Gabriel Magalhaes.

The 23-year-old is expected to take a medical when he returns from holiday on July 26.

The two Premier League clubs seem to have reached an agreement on a deal that will see Brighton get a guaranteed £50m from structured payments with no add ons.

He is excellent on the ball and boasts a fine range of passing. His composure and confidence in possession are such that Potter and Bielsa have even used him in central midfield.
