Liverpool enters the race to sign a 6-foot-2 ‘rising talent’ and Klopp’s staff is smitten

According to reports, Liverpool has entered the competition to sign Chelsea defender Levi Colwill this summer.


The Premier League centre-back is currently out on a season-long loan at Brighton, where his performances at The Amex have been catching the eye, but the Seagulls don’t have the option to buy in the summer.

90min report that Graham Potter’s side are reluctant to let the 20-year-old permanently leave and believe he has a role to play in the first team upon his return at the end of the season.


Following a fresh update, however, it sounds like Jurgen Klopp believes a deal could still be on the cards…


According to Football Insider, Liverpool are ‘tracking’ Colwill as they ‘plot a move’ ahead of the 2023/24 season.


The Reds believe that the 6 foot 2 colossus ‘fits the bill’ of what they are looking for in a centre-back and Klopp’s backroom staff are ‘seriously impressed’ by what they have already seen of him.


Colwill has been hailed a ‘rising talent’ by journalist Simon Johnson and he would be an excellent signing for the future of Liverpool.


The Southampton-born talent currently averages 2.1 aerial wins and two clearances per top-flight game (WhoScored), alongside ranking in the 97th percentile for most passes attempted by centre-backs.



Stamford Bridge’s academy graduate would also bring welcomed versatility with his ability to operate at left-back and in midfield alongside his natural position.


Colwill’s attributes will be extremely attractive to Klopp and having already made two appearances for England’s U21s, has a huge career ahead of him.



Roberto Firmino has reportedly attracted the interest of MLS clubs following Friday’s announcement that the attacker will leave Liverpool at the end of the season.


According to journalist Ben Jacobs, the Brazilian international’s decision to depart Anfield this summer has alerted some teams in America over a potential swoop, with Atlanta United an MLS side who have previously looked into signing Firmino ahead of the upcoming transfer window.


Whilst the Five Stripes might now be out of the race for Firmino following their January acquisition of Giorgos Giakoumakis from Celtic, many top sides in MLS could still be interested in signing the Liverpool fan favourite, with the division now in a position to lure such a player.


MLS sides aren’t alone in their interest for Firmino, though, with Atletico Madrid also chasing the 31-year-old forward as well as Saudi Arabia side Al-Nassr. However, it is unlikely that the striker will make the move to the Middle East at this stage of his career.

Indeed, signing for a club in America’s top-flight could be an interesting decision for Firmino, with interest in MLS only growing each year and the Liverpool star a name who could attract a lot of eyeballs depending on which franchise chooses to pursue the attacker.


With interest already high in Liverpool, the £29m signing from Hoffenheim has a big decision to make at the end of this season, yet with MLS clubs circling Firmino, the Brazilian could consider a move to America ahead of a move to a traditional European powerhouse, such as Atletico.

European clubs are sure to register an interest in Firmino the closer we get to the summer transfer window, yet even if a top side comes in with a contract offer, MLS could be a great move for the South American star given how big the league is growing with each year.


As we know, some of Europe’s biggest names are now taking their talents to America, with Lorenzo Insigne ꜱᴜгρгιꜱing everyone by signing for Toronto FC last summer. And for Firmino, the Brazilian could be the next European-based superstar to make the move to MLS to become the poster boy for a franchise.
