Defender compared to John Terry now 'well liked' by Liverpool officials

Chelsea defender Levi Colwill is reportedly admired by Liverpool, with the England youth international expected to leave west London this summer.

According to Goal, the 20-year-old centre-back is ‘well liked’ by Anfield officials, who are keen to bring in defensive reinforcements after sorting out Liverpool’s midfield overhaul, with Colwill potentially leaning towards an exit at Chelsea.

Having impressed out on loan at Brighton & Hove Albion, the youngster has attracted quite the interest over the season, and with Colwill’s Chelsea future up in the air, Liverpool could be in the perfect position to move for the left-footed defender.

Likened to John Terry, Colwill is arguably the most exciting English defensive talent currently playing in the Premier League, and Liverpool winning the race for the centre-back’s signature could be viewed by many as a huge coup for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Indeed, Colwill has the potential to arguably become a world-class defender, and with Chelsea on course to let go another Cobham talent at the worst possible time, Liverpool have to be there to strike when the iron is hot, with the 20-year-old a potential long-term centre-back option.

The Reds have made it fully aware that they want to add to their defence this summer, and with a talent as good as Colwill potentially on the market, a masterstroke could be about to happen from the Anfield giants.

Colwill has all the talent to become one of the best in Europe, and under a manager like Klopp at a club like Liverpool, the youngster has all the tools needed to take his game to a whole level, with Merseyside an ideal next destination for the defender.
