Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Bukayo Saka INJURY, Stoica ‘bid’, Lacazette January exit, Pablo Mari Flamengo return


Ben White is rated as the new Paul McGrath and the Gunners have reportedly bid for whizkid Ianis Stoica.

But Arsenal are still thought to be waiting on a scan for Bukayo Saka’s injured hip.

Attacking Romanian midfielder Stoica has hit six goals in 14 games for top flight home-country club Roș-albaștrii.

And Team Talk claim the Gunners have already made an offer for the 18-year-old.

However, Roș-albaștrii owner Gigi Becali is said to be desperate to keep the Under-21 star.

Meanwhile, White has been tipped to become an England regular.

The former Brighton centre-back shone again as Arsenal went fifth with Saturday’s 2-0 defeat of Newcastle.

And ex-Chelsea defender Tony Cascarino believes White has the calmness of Manchester United legend McGrath.

Cascarino told talkSPORT: “He (McGrath) was not a player that would dribble or do brilliant technical things but he was fantastic at keeping that ball and moving it simply.

“Ben White has got a bit of that in him and if he keeps developing will certainly make the England team as a starter.”
