Thu 17 June 2021 | 4:24

Ben White has been appointed as Trent Alexander-Arnold's substitute in England's Euro 2020 selection after the Liverpool Fullback’s withdrawal from England’s squad due to an unfortunate injury.

The center-back had a fantastic debut season at the Amex Stadium after impressing during a loan spell at Leeds in 2019/20 and were hugely linked with a move to

Manchester United, Liverpool

, and

Arsenal

in a report by

 

Daily Mail

.

According to 

Goal

, the Gunners have stepped up their interest to submit their first official offer for the 23-year-old

Brighton

centre-back, which has been rejected by the Seagulls.

According to the reports,

Arsenal’s

first offer for White was in the region of

£40m

while the Seagulls are believed to

value the 23-year-old defender

at around the

£50m

marks.

However,

Arsenal

will reportedly

continue negotiations

with

Brighton

over a summer transfer for England international and a second offer is expected to follow soon.

Making

36 Premier League appearances

for

Brighton

, the centre-back was influential in Brighton’s Premier League survival, where they finished 16th in the Premier League table.

On the other end, Arsenal needs requirements in the vacant centre-back position with

David Luiz

’s departure from the club and the possible exit of

Konstantinos Mavropanos

, who is edging towards a permanent move to

Stuttgart

. The fee is believed to be in the region of £7m, with

Arsenal

hopeful of wrapping up a deal in the coming days.
