Pep Guardiola makes Ben White request as Man City searches for options in the defence


Spanish outlet Fichajes have revealed Pep Guardiola likes Ben White, a player that has contributed immensely to Arsenal’s upward rise this season. 


Guardiola reportedly shows interest in Ben White and has handed the request to the club’s top hierarchy, according to the report from Fichajes.


The decision by Pep Guardiola could be justified as Man City only has two reliable right-backs in Joao Cancelo and Kyle Walker. 


Arsenal spent over 58.5 million euros on Ben White. But if Manchester City are willing to pay more (75 million euros), the Gunners could be willing to let the player leave.


Pep Guardiola has identified the problems in his defence and wants to fix them as soon as possible. The Cityzens are currently second behind Arsenal as hostilities begin on Boxing Day.
