Liverpool have considered Ben white as a good possible summer transfer to add to their defense line but it’s unclear if he is an alternative to Rb Leipzig defender. Konate.
White has been a long-term target for the Reds, having emerged as one of English top most astonishing young defensive talents during his loan spell at Leeds.
White is currently back in his parent club with the 23-year-old having experienced a mixed season so far as the Seagulls find themselves entangled in the relegation battle, despite having conceded fewer goals than 10 other Premier League sides.
Ben white was once a Southampton youth player who has been largely dominant at centre-back, but has also featured as a defensive midfielder, and once as right wing-back.
This flexibility will no doubt lure him to klopp and Liverpool’s recruitment staff, and the mail’s Dominic King has claimed that White is “being considered” as a summer transfer target.
RB Leipzig centre-back Konate is expected to make the switch to Merseyside, but no deal has been concluded yet, hence it is possible that White is an alternative.
Liverpool have tracked White for a long period, with reports of ‘genuine interest’ emerging in 2019, while the following year it was claimed that Reds scout Andy O’Brien was watching him at “almost every single game” at Leeds.
