Ben White’s contract expires in 2026, but talks to extend it are presently underway.
White has been a crucial component of Arteta’s plans ever since switching teams in the summer of 2021, from the Seagulls to the Gunners. He has played for the side on over 100 occasions already and has been expected to be versatile during his time at Arsenal; he has mostly played at the centre of defence, but recently, he has been more frequently linked to the position of right-back.
Both parties are growing more optimistic that an agreement will be reached fairly soon, according to transfer expert and reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano, even though talks are still ongoing.
Though he missed Arsenal’s most recent game against Vincent Kompany’s Clarets due to illness, it is anticipated that he will be available for selection again when Arsenal travels to Brentford on the 25th of November.
