Transfer Talk: Liverpool, PSG eyeing Chelsea's Colwill

Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool both want to sign Chelsea defender Levi Colwill, according to a report by the Evening Standard.

Chelsea are adamant that they will not let the 20-year-old leave, after he signed a six-year contract last summer and believe he is happy at Stamford Bridge. Even so, PSG and Liverpool are both tracking the England international in case Chelsea need to offload academy graduates to help manage their financial situation.

The club are under pressure to stay in line with the Premier League's profit and sustainability rules -- and academy players present "pure profit" in the accounts. Conor Gallagher, Ian Maatsen (excelling on loan at Borussia Dortmund), Armando Broja (on loan at Fulham) and Trevoh Chalobah are all considered players who could depart to help fund moves for a striker, centre-back and left-back

Liverpool, Manchester City and Brighton & Hove Albion all looked at Colwill last summer, with the Seagulls seeing numerous offers rejected. Since then, Colwill has become a key player in manager Mauricio Pochettino's squad, starting 19 Premier League matches.

Sporting director Luis Campos is driving PSG's interest, but Lille centre-back Leny Yoro is their No. 1 target before moving for a left-footed centre-back in 2025 with Colwill among the players being considered.
