Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Premier League side Brighton are now giving Arsenal chiefs tough time in their efforts to sign England international Ben White as they have asked the Gunners to add more money.
After failing to finish among the top four at the end of the 2020/21 League season, Arsenal chiefs are now ready to help Mikel Arteta land some good legs ahead of next term.
