Liverpool fans have been drooling over Leeds United loan star Ben White after seeing a montage of the defender on Twitter.
White, 22, has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs throughout the duration of his loan from Brighton, which is no surprise considering how well he’s played at Elland Road.
The Athletic’s Phil Hay reported last month that Liverpool are closely monitoring White with a view to potentially signing him once his loan spell in West Yorkshire comes to an end.

Leeds do not have the option to sign White and with Brighton in a precarious position in the Premier League, the defender could well be up for grabs in the summer.
After seeing a compilation of White’s performances in the Championship this term, a section of Liverpool fans have decided that the Leeds loanee would be a good signing for them.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
Would be a great signing

Seeing White compared to Chelsea legend John Terry just goes to show how amazed some Liverpool supporters are by the Brighton defender’s displays at Leeds.
Terry was one of the best England has ever had but White might actually be better with the ball at his feet than the ex-Chelsea man ever was.
Yes. Hes like young Terry
