Brighton want Levi Colwill as part of deal for Moises Caicedo
Brighton have expressed an interest in seeing Chelsea offer centre-back Levi Colwill as part of any bid for Caicedo but the Blues have made it abundantly clear that they are not entertaining such an idea.
Colwill shone last season on loan at Brighton and the Seagulls are one of a number of sides to have enquired about his availability this summer, including both Liverpool and Manchester City, but Chelsea’s stance has always been the same.
Colwill is due to report back for pre-season with Chelsea in the coming days and will speak with manager Mauricio Pochettino about his future at the club, having spoken openly during the summer about his desire to see regular minutes next season.
“I’ve got to play at the end of the day,” he told reporters after his triumphant European campaign with England Under-21s.
Chelsea have a number of midfielders on their radar this summer but are currently focused on Caicedo, although club officials have not yet ruled out a move for a second midfielder as well.
