Chelsea have let a number of first team players leave the club this summer as owner Todd Boehly and manager Mauricio Pochettino oversee an overhaul. 

The likes of Mason Mount, Kai Havertz and Mateo Kovacic have already departed Stamford Bridge, joining Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester respectively.

Owner Boehly has spent more than £500 million during his first year in charge of the club, but the American is now working to reduce the size of the squad and raise funds for further new arrivals.

With that in mind, rivals Liverpool are reportedly hoping to sign one of the Blues’ most highly-rated youngsters.

According to 90min, Liverpool are preparing a move to sign centre-back Levi Colwill.

The Englishman spent last season on loan at Brighton and Hove Albion and impressed on the south coast.

The report claims that the Reds are confident that they will be able to lure the defender away from Stamford Bridge, although Chelsea are said to be adamant that the player is not for sale.

Colwill is said to be a target for Liverpool

Colwill, 20, played a key role for England as they won the under-21 European Championships last week, making five appearances at the tournament.

At present the Englishman is contracted to Chelsea until the summer of 2025, but the Blues are said to be hopeful of persuading the player to stay put and eventually extend his contract.

If he does remain in London this term, Colwill will be competing with the likes of Thiago Silva, Trevoh Chalobah, Wesley Fofana and Benoit Badiashile for a place in Pochettino’s backline.

The report also claims that Brighton have already failed with at least two offers to sign Colwill permanently, with the Seagulls having first proposed the idea back in January.

Despite Chelsea insisting that the player will be given opportunities to impress this term, the report claims that Colwill himself is unsure about whether or not his long-term future should be at Chelsea.
