want to tie down to a new long-term deal – despite the fact that the defender has three years to run on his existing contract.

The Englishman joined Arsenal from Brighton in 2021 for a fee of £50million.

His game has gone from strength to strength since, with White playing between centre-back and right-back for Mikel Arteta.

The Norwegian is in advanced talks to do so, with the playmaker set to be given a bumper rise on his current £120,000-a-week earnings.

But the Daily Mail say White is the next in line, and talks are likely to be opened in the coming weeks.

That’s despite the fact that White’s deal runs out in 2026, but Arsenal are keen to avoid mistakes of the past by starting talks early.

White is happy to stay at the Emirates, and the club expect negotiations to be short.
