Liverpool tipped to reignite pursuit of Brighton’s Ben White

The latest word stemming from the English media on Thursday suggests that Liverpool remain interested in the signing of Brighton star Ben White.

Liverpool tipped to reignite pursuit of Brighton’s Ben White

Brighton stand firm

Speculation surrounding the future of Seagulls stopper White of course proved rampant over the 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, his fine early-season form now appears to be piquing fresh interest in his signature.

The 23-year-old has started in all but one of Brighton’s 18 Premier League outings thus far, impressing alongside the likes of Adam Webster and Lewis Dunk.

And, as per a report from the Liverpool Echo, one club to have been particularly impressed by the Englishman have been Jurgen Klopp’s champions.

It is suggested that Liverpool also expressed an interest in White during the summer, after scouting the stopper extensively throughout his year in the Championship.

And, having since continued to keep a close eye on his development to this point in the current campaign, the Reds do not appear to have been deterred.

In turn, it is claimed that White remains firmly ‘on the recruitment list’ of Klopp and co.

Despite the defensive injury crisis at Anfield at present, however, any potential swoop for the Brighton star is not expected to be forthcoming until the summer.
