Back in January, Liverpool were credited with an interest in Ben White.
The centre-back is contracted to Brighton & Hove Albion but has spent the 2019/20 campaign on loan with Leeds United, making 40 appearances for Marcelo Bielsa’s side in all competitions.
Liverpool will seemingly be in the market for a Dejan Lovren replacement this summer, and a lot of the Merseyside club’s fans believe that White would be a solid signing for the club ahead of the 2020/21 season.
Would be a great signing

This fan did not explicitly speak of his desire to see the 22-year-old at the club, but his verdict on White’s ball playing expertise suggests he’d be pleased if a deal was struck.
Better on the ball than Fabinho lol

Meanwhile, one fan referred to White as like ‘a young John Terry’.
For all of the praise that has come the defender’s way this season, it is worth remembering that he has never played in the Premier League.
White actually spent the second half of last season on loan in League One with Peterborough United, meanwhile, which is an indication of his rise.
Yes. Hes like young Terry

Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are also believed to be admirers of the Englishman, and it will be fascinating to see what the future holds for the 6 ft 1 ace.
