Arsenal are said to have reached an agreement ‘in principle’ with Brighton over the transfer of Ben White.

White has been at the top of the Gunners’ list of centre-backs all summer, and it emerged during Euro 2020 that they were confident of agreeing a deal.

Though, it was made clear that nothing would progress while White was focussed on England’s efforts at the competition where they reached the final before losing on penalties to Italy.

The report claims the deal is in the region of £50million with only a medical and personal terms to iron out.
