Chelsea centre-back Levi Colwill is reportedly on his way out of the club

Chelsea centre-back Levi Colwill is reportedly on his way out of the club as the Blues continue to be in pursuit of high-profile defenders this summer.

After losing Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen to Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively, the Blues have been in the market for a center-back.

The club recently signed Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli and is reportedly pursuing PSG’s Presnel Kimpembe and Manchester City’s Nathan Ake.

Chelsea has made a £40m offer for Paris Saint-Germain defender Presnel Kimpembe and is back in talks with Sevilla over Jules Kounde.

With more competition set to arrive at Stamford Bridge, Colwill is likely to depart Chelsea to further his career, as per The Athletic.

The report also says that a host of Premier League clubs are interested in the 19-year-old, who impressed on loan at Huddersfield Town last season.

Colwill, who has three years left on his current deal, featured in 32 games for the Terriers, helping them reach the EFL Championship playoffs final.

Unfortunately, he scored a decisive own goal in the summit clash against Nottingham Forest, who gained promotion to the Premier League with a narrow 1-0 victory.

As per the aforementioned report, Crystal Palace, Southampton, Fulham, Leicester City, Everton and Brighton & Hove Albion are in the race for Colwill this summer. Speaking to The Athletic in May, Colwill had said:

“I think I’m ready (for the Premier League). I have learned a lot this year, so the next step I hope will be in the Premier League, with Chelsea, Huddersfield, or whoever.”
