Liverpool will make an attempt to sign Ben White from Brighton & Hove Albion during this summer’s transfer window.
White impressed on loan with Leeds United last term as they secured promotion to the Premier League after a 16-year absence.
He was tipped to leave the Seagulls over the summer but they managed to ward off any interest by setting a hefty £40m price tag.
The Merseyside giants believe White could act as the perfect partner for Virgil van Dijk, who is currently out with a long-term knee injury.
The Reds recently suffered a fourth straight loss in the league against Everton and they are now five points adrift of the Champions League places.
