Arsenal is actively engaged in discussions with the talented 26-year-old defender, Ben White, exploring the possibility of a contract extension. Encouragingly, both the player and the club are expressing confidence in the ongoing negotiations.
White, who made the switch from Brighton to Arsenal in 2021, has solidified his position as a dependable asset in Coach Arteta’s team. Initially recruited as a central defender, the versatile English player has seamlessly adapted to the right-back role, accumulating over 100 appearances for the club.
