White is one of several Brighton players who have been linked with moves away this summer, with his future the big topics of debate in the summer transfer window while he is away with England.
The 23-year-old defender is wanted by Arsenal, with the Gunners looking to strengthen this summer after missing out on European football for the first time in 25 years.
According to journalist Duncan Castles on the Transfer Window Podcast, the Premier League champions could look to make a late bid to try and sign White as they look for defensive options this summer, with the future of Aymeric Laporte currently uncertain.
Man City have already lost Eric Garcia on a free transfer to Barca. White could now be signed to bolster Pep Guardiola‘s options ahead of their Premier League title defence.
White became a top player at the Amex in 2020/21. He featured in 36 of their Premier League games and formed a solid defensive partnership with Lewis Dunk and Adam Webster.

there are no replacements for a player of his quality. Pep has to stop playing Stones over him.— Jason Hirsch (@JasonHirsch16) July 1, 2021

Getting rid of a good player for someone who’s bang average just because he’s English…. make it make senss— Laura (@lolasdandelions) July 1, 2021
We need Laporte to stay. One big injury to Dias or Stones and we’ll drop hugely in class without him. Should use him at left back a lot to keep him involved. Alas, I think he’ll go and we’ll get Ramos, who is ancient and hasn’t played for ages due to injury.— David Medley (@MedleyDave) July 1, 2021
