​Arsenal edging closer to buying Brighton defender White, but Saliba...

Arsenal are pushing closer to completing a move for Brighton and Hove Albion defender Ben White.

The England centre-back is a key target for the Gunners, as manager Mikel Arteta hopes to find a suitable replacement for David Luiz.

According to football.london, talks between the two clubs are well underway and Arsenal are confident of concluding a deal.

If the Gunners are successful in luring White to North London, the report states that young defender William Saliba will consider his future.

The 20-year-old Frenchman has spent the past two seasons on loan or on the sidelines since signing for Arsenal.
