Kevin Campbell is adamant Man United will be interested in signing Brighton defender Ben White this summer after he was included in England’s 26-man squad for the Euros.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Arsenal and Everton striker claimed the 23-year-old’s versatility and ability on the ball will make him an attractive option for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
According to the Mirror (9 June), Arsenal have joined Spurs, Liverpool and United in the race to sign the £50million-valued centre-half.
Football Insider has been told by a recruitment source that United’s interest is solid.
White emerged as a key figure in Brighton’s defence after signing a new four-year contract last September.
Campbell claims he would be “a major asset” for the Red Devils.
“Look, a ball playing centre-half who did really well at Leeds and who has shown he is more than capable of playing in the Premier League at Brighton will be of interest to Manchester United,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs.
“His stock has risen a lot in the last two years. Now that he is in the England squad clubs like Man United will be thinking, ‘Wow. He can play at that level now.’
“He would only be a major asset to a club like Manchester United. You can see it happening.
“He is an international now who could be part of the rotation at United. I am sure United would like to have a player like him in their squad because he is also very versatile. He is a good player who is only going to get better.”
White recently replaced the injued Trent Alexander-Arnold in Gareth Southgate’s squad for the Euros.
