Liverpool target Levi Colwill aims subtle dig at parent club Chelsea when asked about his future
| Last updated
Liverpool target Levi Colwill has aimed a subtle dig at his parent club Chelsea.
The Reds have been tipped to make several changes to their squad in the summer, after what has been an underwhelming season.
The Merseyside club will target a midfielder in particular, with the likes of Ryan Gravenberch, Mason Mount and Alexis Mac Allister having all been linked.
However, Jurgen Klopp also wants to add to his backline, with Crystal Palace’s Marc Guehi and Chelsea’s Levi Colwill both said to be targets.
And the latter appears to have aimed a subtle dig at the Blues when questioned over his future, that could prick up the ears of Liverpool's recruitment team.
Colwill’s subtle dig
Colwill, who has been on loan at Brighton for the season, suggested he wanted to stay with the Seagulls for another season, or head to pastures new rather than stay at Chelsea.
When asked about his future, the 20-year-old told the Athletic: “Brighton have done a lot for me. They put their trust in me when others didn’t and I’m a person that loves to repay that. We’ll see.
“I don’t know what is going to happen (at Chelsea). I’m still here until the end of the season. I just focus on that, then I’ve got the Euros (the Under-21 European Championship with England) in the summer.
“After that, we’ll see what happens and go from there.”
Mauricio Pochettino is soon expected to be confirmed as the new head coach at Chelsea and is understood to be keen to build a squad around a core of home-grown players. Indeed, Colwill will reportedly be part of those plans.
Yet while Chelsea do not want to sell, the centre-back has only two years left on his current contract. A new deal has been on the table for a while, but he hasn’t shown any desire to sign it without assurances he will play regularly next season.
In turn, Colwill could be sold should the Blues struggle to resolve the player’s future.
