Liverpool watching Brighton defender Ben White for summer market

Liverpool will keep close tabs on Brighton defender Ben White for the remainder of the season.

The Liverpool Echo says there is genuine interest in White.

The Reds scouted White extensively last season during his successful loan spell with Leeds United in the Championship but opted against making a move last summer due to the recognition that the centre-back would need more top-level experience before being ready to make the switch to Anfield.

When White signed a new deal in September, the Reds' hopes were not dashed, due to taking a more long-term view on the player.

With Liverpool's recruitment system operating two transfer windows ahead, any assessments on White were with a view to the 2021 summer market.

That means that, whilst there may be no new arrivals this month, White could well be on the recruitment list come the summer.
