Brighton defender White urged to shoot higher than Arsenal

Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan says Brighton defender Ben White should be shooting for higher than Arsenal.

The Gunners are favourites to land the England international.

"Why would he want to go there? There's other steps up for him that are far more compelling than Arsenal," said Jordan.

"If Ben White is now in the international squad and is revered the way he is because he's a top quality player, why are Arsenal in the mix?

"Arsenal are all over the place. If you're comparing Brighton and Arsenal then, yes, Arsenal is a step up.

"But you're talking about someone who is in the England squad who people inside the game think is an absolute Rolls-Royce.

"What is the move to Arsenal for? Because they are a long way away from where they need to be."
