Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Championship on Monday, August 17.

Monday morning's Championship transfer talk news roundup:

Leeds make £16m offer for Arthur Cabral?

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has reportedly set his sights on signing Basel forward Arthur Cabral.

Despite winning the Championship, Leeds sometimes struggled in the final third last season, naturally leading to plans being made to bring in a new striker ahead of their return to the Premier League.

While a number of high-profile names have been linked with a switch to Elland Road, Globo Esporte claims that there is strong interest in Cabral.

Having scored 18 goals during a loan spell from Palmeiras, Cabral has now been signed by Basel on a permanent basis.

Although the 22-year-old cost just £3.6m, Leeds are allegedly willing to spend in the region of £16m on the Brazilian.

Cabral has previously earned one cap for his nation's Under-23 side.

Brighton & Hove Albion's Ben White 'wanted by every top six Premier League club'

Brighton & Hove Albion have reportedly received enquiries from several top Premier League sides over the availability of centre-back Ben White.

The Englishman starred during his loan spell with Leeds United during the 2019-20 campaign, playing all 46 Championship games as the Whites were crowned champions and achieved promotion back to the Premier League.

Marcelo Bielsa's side were supposedly keen to keep White on the books at Elland Road permanently, but Leeds are believed to have seen £18m and £35m bids knocked back by Brighton in recent weeks.

Leeds will reportedly face stiff competition for White's signature, however, as The Sun reports that Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Leicester City, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have all made contact with Brighton over the 22-year-old.

The report claims that the Seagulls rate White highly and would be reluctant to part ways with the centre-back, and it would take an offer of £50m for Brighton to consider sanctioning a sale.

White has just under two years left to run on his current deal at the Amex Stadium.
