Arsenal will be looking to extend their unbeaten run this term when they face Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium next Sunday.

The North London outfit extended their fine start to the season with a 4-0 away win against Bournemouth on Saturday.

Goals from Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, Kai Havertz and Ben White helped the Gunners cruise to victory at the Vitality Stadium.

The result means that Mikel Arteta’s side currently sit in third place in the Premier League after tallying up 17 points from seven games.

The Gunners and their fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur remain the only teams to be unbeaten in this Premier League campaign.

Arsenal captain Odegaard recently signed a new long-term contract that will keep him at the club until 2028 and now it seems that Arsenal are already working on extending another first-team player’s deal.

According to  Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal are working to extend the contract of defender Ben White.

Romano claims that the club is delighted with his performances and attitude, hence why they are keen to extend his stay.

Arsenal are keen to extend White’s contract after his impressive run of form

White, 25, has made 93 appearances for Arteta’s side since joining them from Brighton & Hove Albion in 2021 for around £50m.

In those 93 games for Arsenal, White has netted three goals and notched up five assists as a defender.

The Englishman has impressed since joining the Gunners and has even played well in the right-back role despite being more comfortable as a centre-back.

The defender has even earned himself four senior England caps since 2021.

In 113 total Premier League appearances, White has contributed towards 36 clean sheets.

The defender played a crucial role in Arsenal’s title charge last season featuring in all 38 of their league matches.

White’s contract doesn’t expire until 2026, meaning that Arsenal have quite a lot of time to discuss a new deal with the defender, but they would most likely want to get a new deal agreed soon.
