Chelsea ready to battle Liverpool for Brighton defender
Chelsea are purportedly thinking about whether to meet Brighton and Hove Albion’s £40m valuation of Ben White.
Ben White hasn’t played in the Premier League, the 22-year-old has recently helped Leeds United win promotion to the top flight.
Leeds United are probably not going to sign Ben White on permanent basis, the 22-year-old is attracting enthusiasm from many top clubs.
As indicated by report, Chelsea are prepared to put themselves at the front of the line by showing an eagerness to meet Brighton’s asking price.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard have seen his team battled at the back all through the season, he is anxious to sign at least one new centre-back during the summer window.
Reigning EPL champions Liverpool are also supposed to be in the running, it appears improbable that the Merseyside outfit will want to pay a huge fee for a player who might just be viewed as reinforcement to Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.
