Liverpool ‘still interested in £40m Ben White’

Liverpool are reportedly still interested in signing Brighton & Hove Albion centre-back Ben White.

The 23-year-old impressed on loan at Leeds United during the 2019-20 campaign before returning to the Amex Stadium, and he has been a key player for Graham Potter’s side this season.

Liverpool have been linked with the Englishman over the last 12 months or so, while Chelsea and Manchester United have also previously been credited with an interest.

According to Football Insider, White’s performance for Brighton in their 1-0 win at Anfield earlier this month caught the attention of Reds boss Jurgen Klopp and assistant manager Pep Lijnders.

The report claims that the centre-back – said to be valued in the region of £40m – remains on the Merseyside club’s radar despite Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak arriving at Anfield during the January transfer window.

White, who has made 23 Premier League appearances this term, has a contract with the Seagulls until June 2024.
