Football London report that Arsenal are now ‘close’ to completing a move to sign Brighton defender Ben White, after having a bid accepted. The England international is rated at £50million by Brighton and the report states Arsenal have met that asking price. A deal is now ‘close’ to going through.
White, 23, has wormed his way onto Arsenal’s shortlist after shining for Leeds United during 2019-20 – and then Brighton last term.
His ball-playing style and versatility has seemingly attracted Arsenal, who have previously had a £40million bid rejected, as per Football London. Now, a deal is near.
That is because an update from Football London states a fee of £50million has been tabled, and accepted, by Brighton.
The report also states that a deal should go through quickly, with White already said to have agreed personal terms with the North London club. Exciting times for Arsenal.
