Chelsea has made a firm decision about one of their young talents. Levi Colwill, a promising centre-back, has been deemed unsellable by the club, despite the interest shown by Brighton and Hove Albion.
Colwill, a breakout star of the 2022/23 Premier League season, has been turning heads with his performances. The 20-year-old player was loaned to Brighton, where he became a regular feature at the AMEX Stadium. His contributions were instrumental in Brighton’s qualification for the upcoming UEFA Europa League season. Brighton, understandably, is keen to secure Colwill’s services on a permanent basis and has reportedly lodged a £30m bid for the player.
However, Chelsea has other plans for Colwill. The club sees him as an invaluable asset and is eager to see how he performs in the pre-season under their new manager, Mauricio Pochettino. While there is a possibility that Colwill might be loaned out for another season, a permanent departure is off the table.
Chelsea is planning to sell 12-14 first-team players during the upcoming summer transfer window. One player set to leave is Mason Mount, who has agreed to personal terms with Manchester United. Mount’s departure has been a topic of discussion due to Chelsea’s difficulty in securing a long-term deal for the midfielder at Stamford Bridge.
