He started every Premier League game with a total of 16 appearances in all competitions, scoring one goal. The former Leeds loanee has made a century of appearances for Arsenal, leading to interest in Saturday's clash with Newcastle.
White, 26, last played for England in March 2022, despite his impressive form for the Premier League giants. He was in the squad for last year's World Cup but returned from Qatar for personal reasons. The former Southampton and Brighton youngster has made four appearances for England.
