EXCLUSIVE: White is a man in demand following his impressive season with Brighton and there is set to be an almighty scramble for his transfer this summer
Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has become a big admirer of the newly-capped England international and they are keen on making a move this summer.
They will face major competition from the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United in the 23-year-old.
But White will be aware of the interest from the big clubs and his inclusion in England’s 26 man squad for the Euros will only increase interest in the versatile defender.
England squads are notorious during tournaments for being a source of gossip among players and there is certain to be plenty of talk about White potentially moving and big clubs coming in for him.
Arsenal are keen to strengthen their squad this summer and there will be funds made available to Arteta to target key areas.
White, who was released by Southampton at 16 before making his way with Brighton via loan spells with Newport and Leeds, has caught the eye of Premier League scouts in the past two seasons.
He can play right back, in centre defence, as part of a back three and Brighton have also used him in midfield because of his composure on the ball.
Brighton will be keen to keep him this summer with interest in several of their star names also including Yves Bissouma who has even been linked with Real Madrid.
But they will face a battle also to keep White with Arsenal looking for his type of defender to be composed on the ball and strengthen their back line.
