Tottenham and Liverpool are also interested in signing Levi Colwill.
Journalist Dean Jones has now provided some insight into Levi Colwill’s future. Chelsea centre-back has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge.
The young defender could return to Brighton after his successful loan at the Amex Stadium. The Seagulls are looking to sign him on a permanent deal.
As per MailOnline, Roberto De Zerbi and his recruitment team are planning an offer of £40m for Colwill after a £30m bid was rejected.
Tottenham and Liverpool are also interested in signing the England youth international.
Jones said while talking to GIVEMESPORT: “Yeah, I personally didn’t read too much into it. I think that Colwill is keeping his cards close to his chest in a moment like this and he wants the negotiations to be done professionally and in a clear-cut manner.
“He doesn’t want to be sending messages over social media, especially at a time when the club are in a new era, they’ve got a new manager. He wants to go about things in a very clear and precise way. The indications are that Chelsea want to keep him.”
Chelsea could also be in the market for Neymar, Rayan Cherki, and Mike Maignan this summer.
