Liverpool target Leeds' Ben White as £20 million replacement for Lovren

Liverpool are reportedly targeting a £20 million move for Brighton loanee centre-back Ben White as a replacement for Dejan Lovren.
The Reds are on the look out for a new centre-back, as they prepare to sell Lovren and have been impressed with White's performances during his loan spell at Leeds.

The centre-back has emerged as one of the stars of the new Championship season and was named the division's player of the month for August.
White moved to Elland Road on a season-long loan deal this summer and has made 11 appearances for the club so far this season, but The Sun report he could soon be a Liverpool player.
The Premier League leaders' pursuit of White could be aided by the 21-year-old's decision to reject a new contract offer from Brighton back in February.
Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip are currently Jurgen Klopp's first choice centre-backs, but it is an area where the club are currently lacking in depth.
Joe Gomez has been hailed as a future star for club and country but has struggled to produce his best form so far this season.
With Lovren firmly out of favour, Klopp's other options at centre-back are teenagers Ki-Jana Hoever or Sepp van den Berg, who joined the club during the summer.
