Arsenal close in on Ben White deal with personal terms agreed on £50m transfer and Albert Lokonga all-but done

ARSENAL are reportedly closing in on a deal for Brighton star Ben White.

And a deal for Anderlecht midfielder Albert Lokonga is all-but-done.


That’s according to Fabrizio Romano, who adds that William Saliba is also set to join Matteo Guendouzi at Marseille.

England centre-back White, 23, has been the subject of two failed bids from the Gunners.

And Brighton are believed to be holding out for £50million.

Chelsea are thought to have told White they are interested in a deal.

Meanwhile, Manchester City have also been linked after losing Eric Garcia on a free transfer.

But Romano claims White’s move to Arsenal have never been in doubt.

Indeed, personal terms on a lucrative contract have already been agreed.

And the Gunners are now close to striking a transfer fee with Brighton.

White looks set to be joined at the Emirates by Belgian ace Lokonga.

Anderlecht have accepted a £15m bid for the 22-year-old midfielder.

And Romano notes that the deal is at its ‘final stages’.

He adds that Arsenal defender Saliba, 20, is also on the verge of yet another loan move after returning from Nice, this time to Marseille.

Matteo Guendouzi has already linked up with the French side, who have an option to buy him next summer.

However, Arsenal have not included a similar clause in Saliba’s loan, hinting he may still have a role to play under Mikel Arteta.
