Chelsea to battle Liverpool offer for Brighton defender White

Chelsea have moved to beat Liverpool to the signing of Brighton defender Ben White.

The Daily Star says Chelsea are planning to hijack Liverpool 's move for Brighton defender White – and ditch Antonio Rudiger in the process.

Frank Lampard's overhaul of the leakiest rearguard in the top half of last season's Premier League is about to get ruthless.

And it appears German international Rudiger will be one of the big-name casualties at the back this summer – along with out-of-favour Spanish keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Rudiger, 27, has failed to convince the Chelsea manager he is the solution to his team's severe defensive issues. The Blues conceded a thumping 54 league goals in 2019-20.

A dreadful display in last weekend's FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal was another nail in the Stamford Bridge career of the £29million ex-Roma centre-half.

Liverpool are poised to make an opening £20million bid and Chelsea prepared to better anything on the table.
