Liverpool are set to have a busy summer transfer window as they look to overhaul several key areas of Jurgen Klopp’s squad
According to reports, Liverpool are interested in signing Chelsea defender Levi Colwill this summer if the Blues are willing to do business. When not sidelined by injury, the England youth international is on loan at Brighton, where he has formed an impressive partnership with Lewis Dunk.
Graham Potter, who brought Colwill to the Amex, is said to be keen on welcoming him back this summer, but there is also interest from further afield.
According to The Liverpool Echo, the Reds are big fans of the 20-year-old and would consider a swoop at the end of the season if the opportunity arose.
However, there is growing speculation that Chelsea will try to entice the player to sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge.
Interestingly, the report also claims that Liverpool were interested in Benoit Badiashile before he joined Chelsea for £35 million.
Many ‘within the Anfield recruitment bubble’ thought the Frenchman had the potential to be a top defender, but Chelsea moved quickly in January.
Liverpool are also thought to be interested in Eintracht Frankfurt’s Evan Ndicka, who will be available on a free transfer.
Colwill is unlikely to be the only Chelsea player of interest when the summer transfer window opens.
That’s because Jurgen Klopp wants to sign Mason Mount from Chelsea, despite the fact that the England international has yet to agree on a new contract.
His current contract is set to expire in the summer of 2024, which means the Blues may be forced to sell him at the end of the current season.
Mount is also thought to be a target for Manchester United, Newcastle United, and Bayern Munich.
Under new Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel, the 24-year-old scored 11 goals and assisted 10 times in the Premier League last season.
After taking over from Julian Nagelsmann, the German could look to bring his former player back to the Allianz Arena.
Mount is still eager to reach an agreement with Chelsea, but because the club needs to raise funds to meet FFP regulations, he may be one of several casualties.
Liverpool must decide whether they can afford to finance a deal for their top midfield target, Jude Bellingham.
Borussia Dortmund is expected to demand up to £130 million for the England international this summer, forcing Liverpool to consider other options.
Among other options, the club has been linked with Wolves’ Matheus Nunes.
