Levi Colwill 'spotted' in Liverpool shirt as cryptic tweet fuels Anfield transfer speculation
| Last updated
Liverpool have already completed two huge signings this summer but fans will hope to see more new arrivals before the window shuts.
Alexis Mac Allister was the first new face through the door in a £35m move from Brighton before Liverpool signed Dominik Szoboszlai for £60m from RB Leipzig.
Their arrivals provide Jurgen Klopp with much-needed midfield reinforcements and the German may now look to bolster other areas of his squad.
Another position in need of strengthening for Liverpool is central defence, with the club reportedly in the market for a left-side centre-back.
Among the names linked with a move to Liverpool is Chelsea defender Levi Colwill, who spent last season on loan at Brighton.
Colwill, 20, made 22 appearances in all competitions for the Seagulls to help them finish sixth in the Premier League and qualify for the Europa League.
Colwill has continued his impressive form on international duty with England U21s at Euro 2023, helping the Young Lions reach the final in Romania and Georgia.
England haven't conceded a single goal on their way to Sunday's final, where they will face Spain.
Elliott sends Colwill cryptic tweet
Colwill took to social media after their 3-0 semi-final win over Israel, posting: "One last push! Onto the final."
A reply from Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott has sparked hope that the Reds man may be able to help convince Colwill to move to Anfield this summer.
Elliott replied to Colwill: "Let's have a chat", along with a laughing emoji – fuelling speculation the Chelsea man could be tempted to move to Merseyside.
The Mirror have reported that Colwill grew up idolising Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.

A picture of Colwill wearing a Liverpool shirt as a youngster has resurfaced on social media in recent weeks amid the speculation over his future.
Speaking back in May, Colwill said he would decide his next move after the U21 Euros were finished.
"Brighton have done a lot for me," he said speaking to the The Athletic. "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. I’m still here until the end of the season. I just focus on that, then I’ve got the [Under-21] Euros in the summer. After that, we’ll see what happens and go from there.
"Who knows, we’ll see what happens in the summer. I love the Brighton fans, I love everything about them (the club). I’ll take that into consideration."
