    Ornstein reckons we're going for Ben White but it will cost 40-50 mil. God knows where that sort of money is coming from for a position we're well stocked in.

    There has been a consistent message from journos that we're after a right CB this summer though so must be some truth in it.

    Either Saliba is out or I am wondering if Holding might be moved on.

    Yeah, heís not the first CB weíve been linked with either - Kounde, Tapsoba, Adarabioyo, Andersen, etc.

    I can see our CB interest being genuine - weíve tightened up a great deal at the back, but to play the way we want to be playing we need our CB s to be athletes (maybe even more so than the CMs), confident on the ball and strong passers, and Iím not sure any of our lot are the complete package? Salibaís actually the closest we have in terms of profile we want, but heís got by far the least experience, so still far from ideal.

    I guess itís also worth keeping in mind that Saliba has played mostly at LCB so far (even though heís a right footer) and that we might want enough options to play 3 at the back when we need to?

    Edit: fwiw I think you might be right - Iím just not feeling the love for Saliba coming out of the club - but letís see what happens. He might come back and wow everyone and force a rethink.

    Can't say I'd noticed White this season either to be honest. Hell of a lot of money for someone with 1 season in the Prem under their belt.

    Bellingham is a gem, the big English clubs missed a trick with him. He'll come back to England in a couple of years for a big fee. Not even turned 18 yet!

    I heard a lot of people raving about White when he was with Leeds in the Championship the season before last (along with Bellingham, Eze, Olise, etc) - didnít really bother watching him, but tbf he has made it into the national side after just one full season in the Prem, so I guess he must be doing something right?

    Brighton are no mugs defensively either - they just donít have anyone who can score!

    Speaking of which, we should be all over Olise, even if we buy to loan him straight back to Reading to continue his development. Heíll either make it with us or heíll sell for good money - either way itís good business.
