England defender Ben White made 36 appearances in the Premier League for Brighton last season, helping them avoid relegation from the top-flight; a sell-on clause has been inserted into the proposed deal.

Arsenal are continuing to work hard in the transfer market but business, as several clubs are experiencing, is proving to be slow.

Roma remain keen on signing midfielder Granit Xhaka, however so far they have been unable to meet Arsenal’s asking price of around £20m for the Switzerland captain.

Similarly, Inter Milan are also keen on signing right-back Hector Bellerin, but the Italian club would at present prefer a straight loan deal rather than signing him permanently this summer.

Ben White is undergoing the second part of his medical at Arsenal ahead of completing his £50m move from Brighton.

The England defender went through the first stage on Wednesday on his return from a holiday after being part of England’s squad at Euro 2020.

According to Sky Sports News the Gunners had a £40m bid for the centre-back rejected while an improved offer of £47m was also knocked back before Brighton agreed to the £50m fee.

Brighton have also inserted a sell-on clause for White, who featured in all but two of Graham Potter’s side’s games in the Premier League last season as the south coast club avoided relegation with a 16th-placed finish.

White did not play for Gareth Southgate’s England side at the Euros as they reached the final but played in the two warm-up games against Austria and Romania prior to the start of the tournament.

White also contributed to Brighton having the joint-best defence in the bottom half of the Premier League last season with 46 goals conceded.

The 23-year-old joined the Seagulls in 2014 from Southampton and has gone on to make 41 appearances for the club in all competitions.
