Liverpool are reportedly yet to decide whether to move for on-loan Leeds United centre-back Ben White this summer.

Liverpool scouts have reportedly been impressed by Ben White's development this season but have identified a weakness in the centre-back's game.

The Reds have been credited with an interest in the Englishman, who has impressed on loan at Leeds United during the 2019-20 campaign.

White - on loan at Elland Road from Brighton & Hove Albion - has not missed a single minute of Leeds' Championship season to date.

Jurgen Klopp's side are allegedly considering a summer move for the 22-year-old, but according to Football Insider, the European champions have a reservation when it comes to the centre-back.

The report claims that while White has impressed the club's scouts with his ability on the ball, the Merseyside giants are concerned by his aerial ability, with the defender standing at just 6ft, making him shorter than Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren and Joe Gomez.

Arsenal are also thought to be weighing up a summer approach for a player who spent the second half of the 2018-19 season on loan with Peterborough United in League One.
