Brighton has rejected a £40m bid from Arsenal for defender Ben White.
Talks are ongoing between the two clubs.
Arsenal is expected to go back with an improved offer for the 23-year-old centre-back, who made 36 Premier League appearances for Brighton this season after spending the 2019-20 season on loan at Leeds.
The England international impressed as Brighton survived relegation and finished 16th in the Premier League, with the joint-best defence in the bottom half of the league (46 goals conceded).
White earned his first England call-up in May when he was named in Gareth Southgate’s provisional 33-man squad for Euro 2020. He was one of seven players cut from the squad on June 1 but later replaced Trent Alexander-Arnold.
