Paris Saint-Germain join Arsenal and Real Madrid in the race to sign Brighton & Hove Albion centre-back Ben White, according to a report.

Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly joined Arsenal and Real Madrid in the race to sign Brighton & Hove Albion centre-back Ben White during this summer's transfer window.

The 23-year-old excelled for Brighton during the 2020-21 campaign and received a call-up to the England squad for Euro 2020 following Trent Alexander-Arnold's injury.

Arsenal are thought to be desperate to sign the defender this summer, with the Gunners said to be preparing to table a £45m offer, having seen their initial £40m bid turned down by the Seagulls.

Real Madrid, meanwhile, have also recently been credited with an interest, as Los Blancos prepare to replace Sergio Ramos, who is leaving the Bernabeu on a free transfer.

However, according to The Mirror, there is also genuine interest from PSG, with the French club's head coach Mauricio Pochettino an admirer of the Englishman.

The report claims that Pochettino kept an eye on White's performances on loan at Leeds United, and the Ligue 1 outfit could now beat Arsenal to his signature.

Brighton are believed to value the centre-back, who has a contract at the Amex until the summer of 2024, in the region of £50m.

Sunday's key events

· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
