'Brilliant', 'cmon Arsenal': Some Gunners fans excited by what Sky Sports have reported
The outlet believes the Gunners have agreed a fee of around £50million to sign the Brighton centre-back.
Arsenal reportedly made two offers for White – £40million and £47million – but they were rejected.
But now it looks as though the two clubs have made a breakthrough.
Sky Sports also claims White is expected to take a medical when he returns from holiday on July 26.
Arsenal fans have welcomed this reported breakthrough with a medical on the horizon.

Ben White: The story so far
White has gone from a talented prospect at a modest club to one of English football’s best young centre-backs in just two years.
The Brighton academy graduate joined Leeds United on loan in 2019.
Despite having no prior experience in England’s top two league, he was superb for the Whites.
White featured in every one of their Championship games and helped them win the title.
The player has since become a regular for the Seagulls, making 36 Premier League appearances last term.
White has also won two caps for England and was part of Gareth Southgate’s squad at Euro 2020.
The Three Lions enjoyed a wonderful tournament as they made it all the way to the final, their first since 1966.
