White has been a crucial part of Arteta’s team ever since signing for Arsenal from Brighton during the summer of 2021.
The defender has played as a centre-back and currently as a right-back for the Spanish coach during his time at the North London club and being only 26, the England star will continue to get better over the coming years.
Arsenal have tied down key players to their project and added others during recent transfer windows. The Gunners are building a very impressive squad and they should compete with it at the top of the Premier League for many seasons to come.
