Arsenal were thought to be leading the race for White after making several bids.

SunSport also revealed Everton were interested too following Rafa Benitez’s appointment.

But £50million-rated White could instead be going to Stamford Bridge.

And Premier League champions Manchester City are also keeping tabs.

Duncan Castles said: “We’ve told you there’s been interest and a conversation with Man City.

“I now understand that Chelsea have notified the player of their interest in signing him.

“I think that’s significant competition for Arsenal because Chelsea can obviously offer Champions League football, can offer a club based in London in the same way that Arsenal can.

“But one that should be immediately competitive for the Premier League title, and one that hasn’t had much hesitation about spending aggressively of Ben White’s profile and age range.

“I think on previous podcasts we suggested that once serious offers started to come in for White, it is likely that other clubs would get involved in a competitive bidding process.

“And I think a competitive bidding process is obviously going to be of benefit to Brighton.”
