Arsenal are at present negotiating with the representatives of Ben White over a brand new contract for the defender, in response to a number of sources.

He arrived as a flexible defender, enjoying principally as a centre-back, however versatile sufficient to do a great job on the defensive flanks and even as a defensive midfielder. His first season on the Emirates noticed him forge a great centre-back partnership with Gabriel Magalhaes, however since William Saliba rejoined the membership after his final mortgage spell, White has been spending the vast majority of his enjoying time as a right-back.
The 26-year-old has clearly established himself as an everyday starter underneath Mikel Arteta, and it’s no surprise the membership are desperate to safe his future, regardless that it appears there is no such thing as a rush on that entrance, provided that his contract doesn’t expire earlier than the summer time of 2026.
