Arsenal attain ‘settlement in precept’ to signal Ben White
Arsenal are said to have “in principle” reached an agreement with Brighton on the transfer of Ben White.
White was high on the Gunners’ list of center-backs all summer and it emerged during Euro 2020 that they were confident of reaching a deal.
However, it was made clear that nothing would move forward while White focused on England’s efforts in the competition where they reached the final before losing to Italy on penalties.

The report claims the deal is in the £ 50 million range with only medical and personal conditions ironed out.
White impressed last season for the Seagulls after raising his eyebrows while on loan at Leeds United.
