Lampard ready to replace Rudiger with £20 million Premier League defender

According to The Sun, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is ready to replace Antonio Rudiger with Brighton defender Ben White, who spent the season on loan at Leeds.

The 22 year old defender helped Leeds United earn Premier League promotion.

Lampard is focused on rebuilding a defence which has proven shaky this term despite earning a top four place to qualify for the Champions League.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is also interested in signing the Brighton defender but the Blues are prepared to outbid Liverpool for the 22 year old defender.
