The summer transfer window is just around the corner, and a number of Brighton & Hove Albion's top players are being eyed by Europe's elite clubs.

At this time of year, when the Premier League is drawing to a close, bookmakers begin to price up the potential suitors of the division's top talent, ahead the transfer sagas set to dominate the newspaper back pages until autumn - once the European Super League saga has been resolved, that is.

Brighton & Hove Albion defender Ben White is a player who has been heavily linked with a move away from the Amex, after a stellar 2019/20 campaign on loan with Leeds United in which he played a pivotal role in seeing the Whites get back to the Premier League for the first time since 2004.

Last summer, the Seagulls dug their heels in and refused to accept Leeds United's advances for the centre-back year, but could see fresh interest as he continues to impress in the top tier.

Now, it appears that Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain are keeping tabs on the 23-year-old, as they've been made Sky Bet's 3/1 favourites to seal the deal, ahead of Manchester United (4/1), Leeds United (8/1) and Liverpool (9/1).

Given that there's still over three years remaining on White's current deal, he certainly won't leave the club on the cheap this summer, and could command a fee in excess of £30m.

Star midfielder Yves Bissouma is another Brighton star to be linked with a move away from the south coast, with Liverpool the current front-runners to land the Mali international.
