Liverpool are considering signing Levi Colwill from Chelsea this summer, as they look to bolster their backline. 

The 20-year-old can play on the left side of defence as well as at full-back and has been likened to Van Dijk in the past. Though highly-rated having enjoyed a promising season on loan at Brighton and then winning the U21 Euros, Colwill might not have much of a future in west London.
