Thursday's Liverpool transfer talk news roundup: Perr Schuurs, Ben White, David Alaba

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Liverpool on Thursday, December 3.

The summer transfer window has now closed and attention will begin to turn to January for Premier League champions Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp's side brought in Thiago Alcantara, Diogo Jota and Kostas Tsimikas during the summer, making for one of their busier transfer windows in the last couple of years.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Anfield.

Thursday morning's Liverpool transfer talk news roundup:

Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham 'all interested in Ben White'

Brighton & Hove Albion defender Ben White is reportedly being monitored by Premier League giants Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.

The 23-year-old played a key role for Leeds United during their triumphant 2019-20 Championship campaign, and White has quickly established himself as a regular in the Brighton defence since returning to his parent club.

While the Seagulls' results do not make for good reading, White has been a standout performer for Graham Potter's men and has been linked with a move to Liverpool in the past.

Now, Sky Sports News claims that Chelsea, Man United and Spurs are keeping tabs on the Englishman's progress, with the trio all potentially searching for defensive reinforcements in the near future.

The report also suggests that Liverpool will consider signing a new centre-back in January given the long-term injuries to Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, but the Premier League champions have no interest in a deal for White.

The former Leeds loanee is under contract at the Amex Stadium until the end of the 2023-24 campaign.

Chelsea 'leading race for David Alaba'

Chelsea are reportedly prepared to make an approach for Bayern Munich defender David Alaba during the January transfer window.

Despite remaining as a key man at the Allianz Arena, Alaba's contract is due to expire in 2021, which has naturally led to widespread interest in his signature.

Liverpool, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona were all linked with a move for the Austria international during the summer.

However, according to AS, Chelsea could make a formal bid in January, despite the 28-year-old being available on a free transfer later in 2021.

The report suggests that the Blues want to tempt Bayern into a sale for a cut-price fee, rather than giving the Champions League winners more time to agree fresh terms with the player.

Negotiations between Bayern and Alaba have allegedly come to a halt with Bayern unprepared to meet his wage demands.
