Chelsea Player ‘Seeking Assurances’ About His Future Following Liverpool Enquiry

Liverpool target Levi Colwill is “keen on seeking assurances” about his future at Chelsea, according to HITC Football.

The website claim that the Reds have made another “enquiry” about the 21-year-old’s availability, but the Blues have reiterated that they will not sell the player.

Despite his club’s insistence, though, Colwill is reportedly not completely happy about his situation, and he is expected to hold talks with new manager Enzo Maresca to find out what the Italian has in store for him.

The defender played the majority of his football at left-back last season under previous head coach Mauricio Pochettino and he wants to be assured that Maresca will play him in his natural position at centre-half.

Why have Liverpool made another enquiry?

Colwill signed a six-year contract last August, with an option for another twelve months. It ended speculation about a transfer at the time.

However, HITC report that the Reds wanted to register their interest again to make sure that Colwill is aware of their determination to sign him.

The Reds are actively looking to strengthen their options at the back

Even if their attempts to unsettle Colwill don’t prove fruitful, it is believed that Arne Slot’s side will sign a centre-back this summer regardless.

They are keen on Lille’s Leny Yoro, but the general feeling is that the teenager will join Real Madrid. Other defenders, including Eintracht Frankfurt’s Willian Pacho, Bayer Leverkusen’s Piero Hincapie and Benfica’s Antonio Silva are all thought to be on the club’s radar too.

In addition to seeking a replacement for Joel Matip, who will leave Anfield on a free transfer at the end of this month, a long-term replacement for Virgil van Dijk could also be needed. The club captain’s contract expires at the end of next season.
