David Seaman has highlighted his one concern about Arsenal signing Ben White from Brighton this summer.
The Gunners are in talks to bring White to the Emirates having already seen a £40million bid for the England international rejected.
The 23-year-old defender had an eye-catching Premier League season with the Seagulls after helping Leeds win promotion from the Championship the previous campaign.
Arsenal have monitored White for many months and they are expected to return for with an improved offer in the region of £50million.
Highbury legend Seaman is excited by the prospect of his former club signing White, but claims there is one "question mark" over the centre-back.
Seaman admits there is one "question mark" White is yet to resolve
"He’s got everything [needed] to go and take hold of it and give it his best shot," Seaman told Goal of White potentially joining Arsenal.
"He’s got the physique, he’s got the temperament. At Leeds it’s a high-press, high-tempo game, so his fitness is also not in doubt.
"The only question mark you can put on him is can he play in the big games? But we’ll just have to wait and see, because he’s not played in them yet.

"Hopefully he will go on and play for England and when he does that, hopefully he will carry on [with his development].
"Would he be a good signing for Arsenal? Of course he would because he’s a good player."
White is currently with the Three Lions at Euro 2020 after Gareth Southgate called him up to replace injured defender Trent Alexander-Arnold.
He has just two international caps and one season in the Premier League under his belt, but Seaman has no doubt he is ready for a big-money move.
Would Ben White be a good signing for Arsenal? Comment below.
"No, not at all, not now," said Seaman when asked if White is too inexperienced for a move to one of the Premier League's biggest clubs.
"It’s like when you see the England team now, you look at Mason Mount and Phil Foden, those sort of guys. They are young guys and they are just getting on with it.
"At that age, they just have no fear. They just want to play and enjoy it. It’s when they get a little bit older and they’ve had a bit of stick that they start worrying."
Seaman also stressed the need to replace centre-back David Luiz, who is set to leave Arsenal at the expiry of his contract this month.
The former England goalkeeper added: "I’d like to see a strong defender come in. Obviously David has gone now and that for me is going to be a big miss because he’s a very influential player.
"I know a lot of people questioned him and whether it was a good signing, but I felt it was because when he signed he was better than anything that we had."
