Manchester United & Arsenal amongst clubs interested in Ben White

Manchester United & Arsenal amongst clubs interested in Ben White

Ben White’s Brighton stint

Ben White is a product of Brighton’s youth system. However, the 23-year-old has not yet featured an awful lot for the Seagulls’ senior side.

Instead, White was farmed out on a series of loans, the last of which saw the ball-playing defender seriously impress for Leeds United during their promotion-winning campaign in 2019/20.

Such form, in turn, proved enough for Graham Potter to hand White a chance as part of Brighton’s first-team setup this season.

And the youngster has gone on to grasp the opportunity with both hands, cementing himself as an absolutely integral cog in the club’s backline.

Man United, Arsenal & more eyeing Ben White

Despite Brighton’s squad, as a whole, not being littered with quality, Graham Potter nevertheless has his side playing some eye-catching, positive football.

White, along with players such as Yves Bissouma, has been key to such exploits, with the Poole-born defender known for his talents on the ball, and more than capable of playing out from the back.

Now, the Seagulls star’s stellar form during his first full season at the Amex has seemingly piqued the attention of some top clubs.

According to a report from the Sun over the weekend, Borussia Dortmund have joined the race for White, whilst PSG, Manchester United and Arsenal remain interested in the defender.

Brighton, whom the Sun claim turned down three bids from Leeds last summer, will demand about £35m for their star defender.

When considering his age, potential, nationality (English) and the fact that he has proven himself to be solid in and out of possession, £35m in today’s market seems like a reasonable sum. This is particularly the case for a club like Man United, who are in desperate need of a partner for Harry Maguire.
