White, 23, is currently away on international duty with Gareth Southgate’s England, however, that hasn’t stopped his long-term domestic future being heavily speculated.

Having joined the Seagulls back in 2014, after rising their the club’s youth ranks and with the help of a successful loan with Leeds United, White has grown to become one of the Premier League’s most highly-rated centre-backs.

Following what has been an excellent individual campaign throughout the most recent 2020-21 season, White has now emerged as a summer transfer target for Mikel Arteta’s Gunners.

Ornstein has hinted that although the Londoners have yet to follow their interest up with an official offer, it shouldn’t be too long until a bid goes in.

It has been noted that the Seagulls will demand between £40m and £50m for their young defender.
