Chelsea set to ‘make final decision’ on defender Levi Colwill with Leicester, Crystal Palace, Brighton and Nottingham Forest all eyeing up a move for the youngster
Four Premier League clubs are interested in signing Chelsea hotshot Levi Colwill, according to reports.
The defender, who is a product of Chelsea’s academy, spent last season on loan at Huddersfield Town in the Championship as the Terriers narrowly missed out on promotion to the the Premier League.
There were questions of whether the teenager could break into Chelsea’s first team, and, according to Fabrizio Romano, a decision is set to be made on Colwill’s future soon with Leicester, Crystal Palace, Brighton and Nottingham Forest ready to pounce.
Levi Colwill impressed on loan at Huddersfield last season and may be set to leave Chelsea
Colwill made 32 appearances on loan at Huddersfield last season, helping the side to the play-off final before they lost 1-0 to Forest at Wembley.
He scored an own goal in the game.
Nevertheless, Colwill is rated highly, but Chelsea could be ready to cash in on the 19-year-old and be willing to listen to permanent offers.
The Blues are looking to strengthen their back line this summer in a reshuffle after the departures of Antonio Rudiger, who has signed for Real Madrid, and Andreas Christensen, who is on his way to Barcelona.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is looking to rebuild his defence this transfer window
Thomas Tuchel is ready to sign two centre backs, with club captian Cesar Azpilicueta also linked with a move to Spain.
Romano tweeted that Chelsea ‘will make a final decision on Levi Colwill’.
The player himself though, per The Sun, said: ‘For me, playing for Chelsea will always be the main aim right now because it’s my club.
‘But if that doesn’t happen, well then I have to find other ways to progress and become the player I want to be.’
He has been capped at several age categories of England youth level and was part of the U17 squad that won the Syrenka Cup in 2019.
He made his debut for the U21 side in March this year in a 4-1 win over Andorra.
