    Arsenal are reportedly closing in on a deal for Brighton star Ben White.

    And a deal for Anderlecht midfielder Albert Lokonga is all-but-done.

    That’s according to Fabrizio Romano, who adds that William Saliba is also set to join Matteo Guendouzi at Marseille.

    England centre-back White, 23, has been the subject of two failed bids from the Gunners.

    And Brighton are believed to be holding out for £50million.

    Arsenal are reportedly open to loaning Hector Bellerin to Inter Milan – but only if certain terms are met.

    The Serie A champions confirmed Achraf Hakimi’s transfer to Paris Saint-Germain this week so are in need of a new right-back.

    But financial limitations mean they can only afford a loan move, which Arsenal will consider.

    However, the Gunners will first explore other potential suitors who may make a permanent offer for the Spaniard, report Gazzetta Dello Sport.

    If they fail to find a buyer Arsenal will engage with Inter but demand an obligation to buy for around £17million-£21m next summer.

    That arrangement does not suit Inter, who instead would like the option to buy Bellerin permanently, depending on their financial situation at that point.

    Despite the issues both clubs are willing to remain patient to see if a deal can be done, with the Italians seemingly in no rush to replace Hakimi.
