Everton are reportedly now eyeing up a move to sign young Chelsea talent Levi Colwill in the summer.
The Lowdown: Colwill thriving at Huddersfield
He was recently one of their best players in a 2-0 win at home to fellow promotion-chasers Luton Town as he won five of his duels and made four clearances, two interceptions and one tackle (SofaScore).
Nonetheless, there are high hopes for him back at Stamford Bridge, where former Blues star Paul Canoville has even backed the young defender to be ‘better‘ than first team regular Andreas Christensen.
The Latest: Everton lurking for Colwill
As per the official website of Italian football journalist and transfer insider Gianluca di Marzio, Everton are among a number of clubs to have ‘expressed an interest’ in Colwill.
Should Everton sign Colwill?
Leicester City, Southampton, Fulham and the Terriers themselves would also be interested in signing him this summer, should the latter gain promotion to the Premier League.
However, Chelsea have been ‘delighted’ with the progress that Colwill is making, and Thomas Tuchel is now set to make a ‘final decision’ on him during pre-season.
The Verdict: Sign him
Coming through the youth ranks at Chelsea, and now impressing at Championship level, Colwill is clearly a player with a lot of potential.
Described by Anton Ferdinand as a ‘Rolls Royce’ who has ‘got everything’ to go to the ‘very top’, the 19-year-old has a very high ceiling, and Frank Lampard would no doubt be eager to help develop him on Merseyside having come from his former club.
Nonetheless, with competition for his signature set to increase after a successful season, the Toffees must sign Colwill now in order to avoid disappointment later.
