Ben White Is Scheduled To Have A Physical With Arsenal Ahead Of His Ps50 Million Deal From Brighton

Ben White is set to have his Arsenal physical on Wednesday, following the completion of a PS50 million transfer with Brighton last week.
According to Sky Sports News, Arsenal had a PS40 million proposal for the centre-back rejected in June, while an upgraded offer of PS47 million was also rejected before Brighton agreed to the PS50 million sum.
White, who played in all but two of Graham Potter’s side’s Premier League games last season as the south coast club survived relegation with a 16th-place finish, has also been given a sell-on clause.
Gareth Southgate chose the 23-year-old for England’s Euro 2020 campaign, and he participated in the two warm-up games against Austria and Romania before the tournament began.
Ben White was a member of England’s Euro 2020 squad that reached the final. He also helped Brighton achieve the joint-best defense in the Premier League’s bottom half last season, conceding 46 goals.
The England international defender joined the Seagulls from Southampton in 2014 and has since made 41 appearances in all competitions for the club.
Before breaking into Brighton’s first squad last season, he had a number of loan periods.
While White spent the 2019/20 season at Elland Road, he assisted Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United in gaining promotion to the Premier League.
After the additions of left-back Nuno Tavares from Benfica and central midfielder Albert Sombi Lokonga from Anderlecht, White would become Mikel Arteta’s third summer acquisition.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are exploring a third bid for Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale valued around PS25 million.
