Liverpool has succeeded in strengthening its midfielders, which was one of its biggest concerns. With Jordan Henderson and Fabinho now being linked with a move to Saudi Arabia, Liverpool is back in the transfer market in search of young midfielders.
However, it is not only midfielders that are in the spotlight, but also left-handed center backs, who have been rumored for some time. One of the top targets is Inglan U-21 defender Levi Colwill of Chelsea.
According to the 90min, Liverpool is confident of landing the player and is preparing to make an offer. Chelsea has maintained its non-sale stance and considers him a central figure in their long-term project.
However, the player himself is hoping for a chance to play and remains skeptical that he will be able to fulfill his wish in London. New manager Mauricio Pochettino has tried to convince him, but he has yet to persuade the youngster, who is under contract until 2025.
The club also lost the iconic English midfielder Mason Mount this past summer, and will be looking to avoid a repeat of that.
Liverpool also has to think about a generational change of players over 30 years old, such as Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk, besides a left-handed center back who is not in the current squad, who would be a valuable asset, and a 20-year-old center back who helped England win the U-21 European Championship 2023. There is no doubt that he is an ideal player.
It is uncertain whether he will be able to grab a starting spot at Anfield, but he is more likely to move up the pecking order than Matip or Joe Gomez, and should be able to play a lot of games at the third center-back in the pecking order.
What will the young defender, who is highly regarded for his potential, decide to do?
