Brighton place £50m price tag on Ben White amid Man Utd, Liverpool and Arsenal interest

Brighton have placed a £50m price tag on Ben White amid interest in the defender from Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal.

White has attracted interest from some of the Premier League’s leading sides after an impressive season with the Seagulls, the centre-back making 36 league appearances to earn a first England call-up ahead of this summer’s European Championship.


Trent Alexander-Arnold’s injury has since seen the 23-year-old included in Gareth Southgate’s finalised plans for Euro 2020 and White will now compete for a place in the side as the Three Lions’ campaign begins against Croatia on Sunday.

White’s inclusion has capped a remarkable rise for the player who shone on loan at Leeds during the 2019/20 campaign, helping Marcelo Bielsa’s side to promotion to the Premier League.

Leeds saw several offers to sign the defender on a permanent basis rejected by Brighton last summer, the last believed to be in the region of £25m.

The Daily Mail are now reporting that the Seagulls will demand double that figure from interested sides during this summer’s transfer window, with Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal all linked with a potential move.

Brighton chief executive Paul Barber recent said that the club are prepared to sell their leading assets should huge offers arrive, as some of the Premier League’s biggest clubs circle both White and in-demand midfielder Yves Bissouma.

White’s versatility and quality will appeal to interested suitors with the youngster comfortable at centre-back, right-back and in midfield.
