Liverpool interested in Chelsea defender

Manager Jurgen Klopp will be eager to see his team maintain their lead as the Reds are now two points ahead of reigning champions Manchester City at the top of the Premier League standings.

Liverpool’s schedule is packed for the second half of the season, including matches in the FA Cup, Europa League, Carabao Cup, and their Premier League championship defence.

During the current transfer window, the German will probably be trying to bolster his squad. According to sources, the Merseyside team is interested in a Chelsea player.

According to 90min, Levi Colwill, the centre back for the Blues, is a target for Liverpool.

The article says that even though Colwill recently inked a new, long-term deal with his current team, the Reds are still interested in the Englishman.

Under Mauricio Pochettino, Colwill has established himself as a regular.

Colwill, 20, came through Chelsea’s junior academy and made his Stamford Bridge debut this season after making an impression while on loan at Brighton & Hove Albion the previous season.

After his prosperous time on the south coast, Colwill drew interest from Brighton and Liverpool but finally chose to remain in West London.

The defender and Chelsea agreed to a six-year deal in August, with an additional 12-month option.

This season, the centre-back has played in 26 games in all competitions and has missed only one of the Blues’ 20 Premier League games.

Under Mauricio Pochettino, Colwill has made frequent appearances, but he has mostly been used as a makeshift left-back instead of in his natural central defensive spot.

According to the article, Liverpool is reportedly keeping an eye on the player’s circumstances and may eventually consider making another approach for him.

It’s also said that Chelsea sees the former Huddersfield Town loanee as a future club captain and has no interest in selling him, despite their interest.
