Liverpool and Chelsea in battle to sign White
That’s according to the Daily Star who report that Liverpool are planning a £20 million bid for White, who was ever-present for Marcelo Bielsa’s side as they won the Championship.
However, Liverpool face pressure from Chelsea who are keen to plug their porous defence. Frank Lampard had the leakiest back line of the teams in the top four, and the 7-1 aggregate defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League further highlighted the problem.
Brighton boss Graham Potter has previously said that he would like to keep White at Brighton despite the fact that the defender hasn’t played a game for the Seagulls. The club believe the player is worth £40m, twice what Liverpool are rumoured to be offering.
Benfica attempt to lure Cavani to Portugal
Cavani has just left the French champions and it is believed that Benfica officials are doing everything they can to sign the Uruguay international.
The 33-year-old is believed to also be attracting interest from Everton and Leeds, though no bid has been forthcoming from either club.
The only sticking point in the move could be the player’s salary. Cavani was on €12m a year in the French capital, which could be too rich for the Eagles.
The striker scored four goals in seven matches in 2019-20. In total, he scored 138 goals in 200 games at PSG.
PSG still searching for Thiago Silva-lining
Meanwhile, PSG are still searching for Thiago Silva‘s replacement at the heart of the defence, and Gazzetta Dello Sport believe the French side are considering a move for €40m-rated Nikola Milenkovic.
