Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is currently focused on crucial club matters, with an annual expenditure of £6.2 million.

The team is gearing up for their second Champions League match following a victorious start against PSV at home. Arteta aims to maintain their strong attacking performance in the upcoming game, likely opting for a similar lineup. However, due to the tight fixture schedule, some key players might be rested to prepare for the match against Manchester City over the weekend. One player exempt from rotation is the reliable English defender, Ben White.

After his successful transition to full-back last season, Ben White has become a pivotal player for Arsenal, excelling both as a full-back and in his natural position as a center back when needed.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is taking proactive steps to secure White’s future at the club. Recent reports from the Daily Mail suggest that negotiations have commenced between Arsenal and White for a new contract. White, whose current deal spans three more years with a weekly earning of £120,000 (£6.2 million annually), is likely to receive a salary increase as part of the negotiations, although specific details have not been disclosed.

If the talks lead to a contract extension, White would join the ranks of players like Bukayo Saka, William Saliba, Martin Odegaard, and Gabriel Martinelli, all of whom have committed their future to Arsenal.
