As we gear up to jump right into the thick of another weekend of Premier League action, the rumour mill shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.

For Brighton, the January transfer window could represent a great opportunity to strengthen Graham Potter's squad as the Seagulls look to make good on the promise they have shown in the early stages of this season and finally pull themselves well clear of a relegation tussle.

Climbing the table would be made a whole lot harder if they were to lose Ben White, however, and according to Ian McGarry of the Transfer Window podcast, the vultures are beginning to circle on Albion’s exciting young asset.
