Chelsea could have pushed Levi Colwill closer to Liverpool switch after £105m transfer

Liverpool continue to monitor Levi Colwill’s situation at Chelsea as the centre-back prepares for talks with Mauricio Pochettino.

Reports in London claim the Reds have made ‘several enquiries’ for the England Under-21 international, who has just won the European Championship with the Young Lions. However, Chelsea are not interested in selling the 20-year-old following his return from a season-long loan at Brighton & Hove Albion.

Still, the defender’s future is uncertain and his talks with his new manager when he reports for pre-season are likely to determine what happens next.

Colwill made 22 appearances for the Seagulls last season, having made 32 appearances during a year-long temporary spell with Huddersfield Town in the Championship in 2021/22. But to make his Chelsea debut, the 20-year-old just wants to play.

“I want to talk to my family, talk to everyone I need to and make a decision,” Colwill said of his future after the European Under-21 final. “I have to play at the end of the day to hopefully get there (England senior team) and go to the next camp.”

Meanwhile, ahead of talks with the defender, Pochettino recently explained, “I have to get a feel for him. I have to hear what’s on his mind. What he expects. And then, of course, that he listens to what I expect from him.”
