Jurrien Timber’s arrival at Arsenal has raised one major question: who plays at right back for the Gunners? At the present, everything points to Timber. The excitement surrounding his arrival suggests that Arteta will use him right away.
Where may White play now that Timber is expected to start at right back and Gabriel Magalhaes and Saliba’s defensive pairing is likely to be preserved at central defense?

“I’m interested to see what happens with Ben White because we know they’re going to bring in Jurrien Timber, that’s going to be as a straight right-back,” said Crook, on talkSPORT‘s Transfer Update Podcast.
“Ben White probably won’t get a center-back position because of the partnership of Gabriel and William Saliba, who has signed a new contract.
“I think he might move up to a sort of John Stones midfield role; I wouldn’t rule that out. So, he might well be the holding midfielder, and that will enable Declan Rice to go further forward.”
