Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino does not want to sell Levi Colwill, according to a report.
The Guardian have reported that new Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino “is determined not to sell” Levi Colwill in the summer transfer window.
The 20-year-old defender spent last season on loan at Brighton and Hove Albion from Chelsea.
The Seagulls have had a bid for the youngster already rejected by the Blues this summer.
Chelsea want to sign Moises Caicedo from Brighton and are aware that if they included Colwill in a potential deal, then it would be easier for them to strike an agreement with the Seagulls.
However, former Tottenham Hotspur head coach Pochettino want the English youngster to be part of his squad for next season.
Liverpool and Tottenham have also been linked with the England Under-21 international.
Chelsea should keep Levi Colwill
In our view, if Mauricio Pochettino wants to keep Levi Colwill at Chelsea and work with the young central defender, then the Blues should not sell him.
Pochettino is a very good manager who works well with young players.
We saw at Tottenham Hotspur how the Argentine improved players.
If Pochettino believes that he could make Colwill better and mould him into a player who could be a huge success at Chelsea, then the club’s hierarchy should back him and allow him to do just that.
