According to Todo Fichajes, Liverpool have bee in advanced negotiations over White since January, with personal terms agreed with the player for a summer move.

The Reds now just need to agree a deal with Brighton, with Football Insider also recently linking him strongly with the Merseyside giants in a potential £40million move, with Jurgen Klopp claimed to be a big fan.
