Arsenal expected to make fresh Ben White offer

Arsenal are expected to make a renewed offer for Brighton & Hove Albion defender Ben White, Sky Sports reports.

The England international has been identified as the top defensive target for the Gunners, and they are determined to sign him.

They recently failed with an opening bid worth £40m, and are now expected to make a fresh proposal for the centre-back.

The Gunners had the third-best defensive record in the Premier League last term, but they are still aiming to strengthen the backline.

William Saliba will be available after his loan stint at Nice, but reports suggest that he could be sold without making his club debut.

Meanwhile, Konstantinos Mavropanos looks set to leave the Gunners for a permanent move to German club Stuttgart.

According to, the north London club have agreed a fee of around £7m to sanction the Greek's sale this summer.

Mavropanos never established himself with the Gunners, and will be leaving them after making just eight senior appearances.
