Arsenal told they would need to pay £50m to land England international

Arsenal is one of the teams interested in signing Brighton’s Ben White as they continue to rebuild their squad.

The Gunners remain keen on making their team better and they will splash the cash in this transfer window again.

Mikel Arteta has been tasked with making them better and he would want maximum support.

Several areas of his squad need strengthening, but the release of David Luiz means it has been expedient for them to sign a new centre back.

The Brazilian had been an important member of their dressing room and also a strong leader at the back when he plays.

Arsenal believes that White has the profile of a defender that their team needs and they might make a move for him this summer.

It would come at an enormous cost as Brighton remains intent on keeping hold of the former Leeds United loanee.

The Daily Mail says the Seagulls want him to remain at the Amex and if they are forced to sell him, it would be for at least £50m.

White has seen his reputation soar after being named in the England squad for the Euros this month.

With Harry Maguire struggling with injuries, he could even become a regular starter in the competition.

    With speculation linking Willock and Suka to Liverpool,it shows Arsenal are no more able to compete for top talent.
    This has been the case since the US owner took charge. If Arsenal aint careful they will go way the of Leeds when Risdale was around

      You can’t blame Joe Willock, when Arteta doesn’t appear to rate him and Klopp apparently does.
      Ben White doesn’t make sense. Midfield is where Arsenal needs to strengthen, yet the Club is being connected with another CB; however Saliba and Mavropanos were on loan last season.

        I don’t get it either CB’s not a priority what we need is another GK a proper DM to protect the back 4 a RB and we are sorted defensively!

      Bad comparison Wolfgang. Firstly we won’t get relegated – I think even you agree that’s unlikely. Secondly Leeds collapsed because Risdale did exactly the OPPOSITE of Kroenke (and precisely what so many of you are demanding Arsenal do now) – he tried to buy success by massively overspending in the hope that the outlay would be recouped in the next two seasons. It wasn’t as they underachieved and their finances collapsed.
      Risdale’s failure is possibly the biggest endorsement of Kroenke advocating careful spending in the history of the EPL.

      @Wolfgang, there is no speculation about them going to Liverpool. The article I believe you may be referring to is a Scouse blog where the blogger is suggesting they would be good signings for his team, a bit like fans on this site suggest we should sign everyone under the sun!

      and speculation is just speculation.

    Speculation and clickbait. Every Brighton player automatically linked with us – even when there is no way we even “enquired” about a player we obviously cant afford in a position that is definitely not on our shopping list.
