Liverpool are continuing to scout impressive Leeds United defender, Ben White, amid talk of a potential move.
The Brighton loanee has been in superb form for the Whites this term. He’s become a central figure for Marcelo Bielsa’s men and has been integral at the heart of the Whites’ defence.?.
However, those performances have led to a number of clubs in the Premier League taking notice, including Liverpool.
According to reports from The Express, the Reds are continuing to scout White as they look at potentially making a move for him over the summer.
No deal or move has been done for the defender as yet, however, with talk of a £20m fee for the youngster.
White has made 27 appearances at Elland Road this season. He’s stepped in brilliantly for Pontus Jansson, a player who many Leeds fans believed would prove difficult to replace in the summer.
It is believed Liverpool are in the market for a new defender. Furthermore, the future of Dejan Lovren remains uncertain. The experienced Croatian star could well see his time at Anfield draw to a close this summer.

Such has been the performance levels of Ben White, it makes it hard to see why Brighton have let him stay in Leeds. Especially, given the fact they spent huge sums on the likes of Adam Webster in the summer.
But Brighton’s loss has been Leeds’ gain. White has been superb. If his displays at Elland Road are anything to go by, then this is a player who is going to the very top level.
A move to Liverpool would be a big jump. Indeed, the expectation levels of playing for the world and European champions brings different challenges.
However, alongside the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, White could strengthen the Reds’ backline even further.
