Liverpool tipped for big-money summer Ben White bid with Klopp ‘hugely impressed’

Speculation in the English media this weekend has pointed towards a summer swoop for Brighton star Ben White on the part of Liverpool.

Brighton stand firm

Speculation surrounding the future of Seagulls stopper White of course proved rampant last summer.

This came on the back of a stellar campaign spent with Leeds in the Championship.

White played a starring role for the Peacocks in 2019/20, starting all 46 of the club’s league outings, as Marcelo Bielsa’s men booked their spot back in the Premier League for the first time in 16 years.

As such, news that the Championship title-winners held an interest in making White’s stay permanent subsequently came as little surprise.

Leeds’ advances, however, were met by an unwavering stance on the part of Brighton: that the club’s gifted stopper was not for sale.

This, in turn, eventually saw White opt to put put pen-to-paper on a new contract with his parent club:

Anfield switch?

As outlined above, however, whilst, in the end, White was convinced to commit his long-term future to Graham Potter’s men, the stopper’s fine form to this point in the campaign now appears to be piquing fresh interest in his signature.

The 23-year-old has started in all but one of Brighton’s 24 Premier League outings thus far, impressing alongside the likes of Adam Webster and Lewis Dunk.

And, as per a report from Football Insider, such standout displays now see none other than Premier League champions Liverpool eyeing up a swoop for White.

It is suggested that both Jurgen Klopp and assistant Pep Lijnders were ‘hugely impressed’ by the former Leeds man throughout Brighton’s 1-0 win at Anfield earlier this month.

In turn, with the personnel crisis at the heart of the Reds’ backline this season having of course been widely documented, White is said to have been identified as a possible addition ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

A bid of £40 million is touted, though it of course remains to be seen whether the Seagulls’ unwavering stance from last summer could potentially change this time around.
