Liverpool, who made generational changes in their midfielders a top priority in the transfer market, succeeded in signing Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai. In addition, they have completed a certain lineup, with a possible move for Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia.
Liverpool’s eyes are now on the left-handed center back. The main target is England U-21 defender Levi Colwill, who plays for Chelsea. The defender, who helped his country win the recent U-21 European Championship 2023, is hoping for an opportunity to play.
Chelsea is undergoing a major restructuring of its squad, but with competition for places with Marc Cucurella and Benoît Badiashile waiting in the wings, it is not clear whether he will be able to play regularly. At the moment, it is likely that he will remain in London, but Fabrizio Romano shared the progress of the transfer shenanigans surrounding the player.
“The interest is 100% confirmed and genuine. It is a very strong interest. People at Liverpool love Levi Colwill and they believe this is fantastic player. This is all people at the club. The interest is very strong. But at the moment, honestly, it’s really complicated to speak on this situation.”
“Yesterday night, after England under-21’s won the Euros, I was asking again to Chelsea side and the answer I was getting back was he was going nowhere, he is our player, he is a crucial player and part of our project. I really feel Chelsea are prepared to fight for this player.”
“I think the only way Levi Colwill will leave Chelsea this summer is in case the player goes there to meet Pochettino, the owners and the board and tells them let me go because I don’t want to stay here. That didn’t happen until now.”Born and Red
The problem is that he is unlikely to be an absolute regular at Liverpool. Besides the defensive leader Virgil van Dijk, there is the “Warriors” Ibrahima Konate. He should be able to move up in the pecking order above Matip and Gomez, but an immediate starting position is unlikely.
It is a very difficult situation, but will the England U-21 defender leave Chelsea, where he grew up as a child…?
