Chelsea lifted the inaugural Premier League Summer Series trophy on Sunday after beating Fulham 2-0 in Washington DC. 

Thiago Silva and Christopher Nkunku both scored to give Mauricio Pochettino’s side victory over their West London neighbours, with the Blues now unbeaten in four pre-season matches so far this summer.

This summer has been one of huge change so far, not only due to the arrival of Pochettino, but also because no fewer than 16 players having already departed Stamford Bridge during the current transfer window.

Kai Havertz, Mason Mount, and Mateo Kovacic are among the most high-profile players to have left the club, while Christopher Nkunku and Nicolas Jackson are Chelsea’s only high-profile arrivals.

Now, though, it appears that those in charge of the club are working hard to ensure that one of their youngsters stays put at Stamford Bridge.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea remain in talks with young defender Levi Colwill over a contract extension.

Chelsea are keen to tie Colwill down to a new long-term contract

The 20-year-old is currently contracted to the Blues until 2025 but has attracted interest from elsewhere, including Brighton and Hove Albion.

Colwill spent last season on loan with Brighton and impressed on the south coast, making 22 appearances across all competitions.

Romano claims that Chelsea have always been adamant that Colwill is not for sale, despite interest from other clubs.

The London outfit have reportedly improved their offer to Colwill and are said to be confident that they can reach an agreement with the player.

Earlier this month, Colwill was part of the England side that were victorious at the Under-21 European Championships, and the centre-back was later invited to train with Gareth Southgate’s senior side.

The central defender has previously spent time on loan at Huddersfield Town but is yet to make his senior debut for Chelsea despite progressing through the Blues’ youth academy.
