The race has begun to sign one of Brighton’s best stars, with Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham all making plans, while Everton is the favorite to sign a Barcelona defender, according to Wednesday’s transfer gossip.
AM WHITE AN ASKED MAN
Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea have joined the ranks of clubs keeping an eye on Brighton defender Ben White.
That is according to Sky Sports, who claim that new data has cast the Englishman in a new positive light. With reference to Wyscout’s index rating, White is currently the fourth best performing center-back in the Premier League. Only Kurt Zouma, Gabriel Magalhaes and Thiago Silva have scored higher so far.
White earned his reputation when he was loaned out to Leeds last season. Indeed, Marcelo Bielsa saw three bids to sign him in the summer turned down. Their latest offer was £ 25 million before moving on to another cause.
It is now clear to everyone why Leeds was so eager to land White.
Having started all 10 of Brighton’s Premier League games so far, the defender has proven that the level increase has not hindered his development.
Liverpool are also looking at the 23-year-old as a possible signing. Jurgen Klopp’s team was indeed strongly linked to White this summer.

However, the report claims that Chelsea, Tottenham and now Manchester United are also enthusiastic about the player.
Now estimated closer to £ 50 million, it is suggested that United, Spurs and Chelsea are all considering bids next year.
However, Brighton will fight tooth and nail to keep White, which only signed a new four-year agreement earlier this year.
