Liverpool linked with Chelsea defender

It’s Friday rumours time and the word on the street is that Liverpool are keen on Levi Colwill.

According to GiveMeSport, ‘Chelsea are bracing themselves for offers to take Colwill off their hands ahead of the 2024/25 campaign and they are growing in confidence that a club preparing to compete in next season’s Champions League will test their resolve with a lucrative offer.

It is understood that Liverpool are among the outfits contemplating whether to attempt to land the defender during the summer, as they put plans in place for a return to Europe’s elite club competition after battling it out for the Premier League title, while Ligue 1 table-toppers Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked.’

There’s no question that Chelsea will need to sell players in the summer, so there are legs to this latest rumour, but its unlikely to be the fire sale that some are predicting.

Liverpool have definitely struggled with lack of quality back-up centre-backs when Virgil van Dijk or Ibrahima Konate have been out injured this season, so a new signing in this position is likely over the summer. Whether it will be Colwell remains to be seen though.
