Chelsea are reportedly keen on a move for Brighton & Hove Albion centre-back Ben White, who has been earning rave reviews on-loan at Leeds United this season.

The Sun on Sunday report that Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is keen on White, as the Stamford Bridge club aim to bolster their defence.

The West London side are also keen on a return for their former defender Nathan Ake from Bournemouth, who would reportedly cost £40m.

If Chelsea did make a move for Ake then a move for White would become unlikely.
