Today’s Arsenal Latest transfer news and latest updates on Ben White situation
North London side Arsenal are set for a huge squad overhaul this summer with some indication of at least five players in all different positions are being targeted this summer.
With departure of Brazilian star David luiz, the Gunners are eyeing a new centre-back and one in particular, with England international Ben White on their radar as a perfect replacement.
White enjoyed a fantastic 2020/21 season at Brighton in the Premier League and earned himself a place in Gareth Southgate’s 26-man England squad for the Euros.
The 23-year-old defender returned to the Seagulls last summer after a really impressive loan spell at Leeds United – with the Yorkshire outfit reportedly keen on making his deal permanent 12 months ago.
At the start of June, Brighton slapped a £50million price tag on White, according to the Mail.
The outlet reported that the Seagulls were resigned to losing the defender, but wanted to make the most money they possibly could.
