Arsenal have been strongly connected to a summer deal for the 23-year-old over the latest weeks. The Gunners reportedly submitted an initial £40 million bid but faced rejection from their leaguer rivals.

However, the Daily Mail has stated that their next proposal has come in at £42 million plus £4 million in bonuses.

The Seagulls, though, are holding out for £50 million. With the Gunners struggling to meet Brighton’s demands, the same Mail report claimed that Everton have joined the chase.

New Toffees manager Rafael Benitez admires White and would allegedly be willing to splash the cash.

According to journalist Duncan Castles, though, Chelsea have told Brighton that they’re keeping tabs on White.

Duncan also revealed a list of reasons why the defender could potentially snub the Gunners for the Blues.

“We’ve told you there’s been interest and a conversation with Manchester City. I now understand that Chelsea have notified the player of their interest in signing him,” Castles told the Transfer Window podcast.

“I think that’s significant competition for Arsenal because Chelsea obviously can offer Champions League football, can offer a club based in London in the same way that Arsenal can.

“But one that should be immediately competitive for the Premier League title, and one that hasn’t had much hesitation about spending aggressively of Ben White’s profile and age range.”
