Fabrizio Romano says Ben White’s Arsenal’s contract talks are advancing

Arsenal star Ben White is next in line for a new contract, and Fabrizio Romano has just shared the latest on the situation.

The Englishman became the Gunners’ most expensive defender of all time, and many eyebrows were raised at his price tag at the time.

However, White has been magnificent for Arsenal over the last three years. Since the start of last season, he has been up there with the best right-backs in the country.

White still has two-and-a-half years left on his Gunners deal, but Arsenal are not willing to take any chances. They want to tie him down to a new contract, and Romano says Edu and co are making progress.

He tweeted: “New round of talks will take place soon for Ben White to discuss new contract at Arsenal, as called on Sunday. Positive feeling as it’s advancing.

“White wants to stay, Arsenal are not under pressure but want to reward Ben with new long term deal and also improved salary.”
