Arsenal edge closer to Ben White transfer as William Saliba 'assesses options' ahead of possible exit

ARSENAL are edging closer to signing Ben White – leaving William Saliba pondering his Emirates' future.

The Gunners remain favourites to land Brighton's England centre-back White, despite having an initial £40million offer rejected.

Now suggest France Under-20 defender Saliba is 'assessing his options'.

The 20-year-old has already been loaned back to Saint-Etienne, as well as Nice.

And both French clubs have been linked with a permanent deal for Saliba over the past year.

He was the January player of the month at the start of his spell with Nice.

And there have been few signs that Gunners' boss Mikel Arteta is willing to give him a serious stab at the first team any time soon.

Saliba, though, is just one of several Arsenal players facing uncertain summers.

Granit Xhaka, Lucas Torreira, Dinos Mavropanos and Matteo Guendouzi are high up the list of possible departures.

And centr5e-back David Luiz has exited on a free transfer.


The former Chelsea and Brazil star is thought to be interesting old club PSG.

Marseille and Rennes are also said to be trailing Luiz.

And several top-flight Brazilian clubs are also keen.
