Brighton reject £40m bid from Arsenal for defender Ben White


Brighton have rejected a £40m bid from Arsenal for defender Ben White.

Talks are ongoing between the two clubs.

Arsenal are expected to go back with an improved offer for the 23-year-old centre-back, who made 36 Premier League appearances for Brighton this season after spending the 2019-20 season on loan at Leeds.

White earned his first England call-up in May when he was named in Gareth Southgate’s provisional 33-man squad for Euro 2020.

He was one of seven players cut from the squad on June 1, but later replaced Trent Alexander-Arnold.
