TMW: Milan eyeing potential repeat of Tomori coup for Chelsea defender Colwill

By Oliver Fisher -

A new name has emerged in AC Milan’s hunt for a central defender as Levi Colwill of Chelsea is a target, according to a report.

TMW writes that the Rossoneri are interested in signing the teenage centre-back who has just returned from a very impressive loan spell with Championship play-off finalists Huddersfield Town.

He made 30 appearances for the Yorkshire club, but Chelsea must now resolve the future of a player who is regarded by many as having a good chance of becoming a full England international.

There are a queue of Premier League clubs who would love to have him, but also in Italy there are interested teams. Milan sporting director Ricky Massara is a fan of the player, as is his counterpart Giuntoli at Napoli.

Atalanta are also admirers of Colwill and thus there are three Serie A clubs that are closely following the evolution of the situation, wondering if there might be the margins to launch a first bid.

Milan have done plenty of business with Chelsea in the past and it must be remembered that Fikayo Tomori made his way from London to Italy in a move that worked out very well.

  1. Would be a good strategy to do what a lot of Bundesliga clubs are doing and offering young players at the ‘top 6’ English clubs a way of progressing their careers.

    The obvious benefit to doing this with British players is that they have a great resale value back to the English market (look at the crazy value placed on the likes of Sancho and Bellingham).

  2. Sign Bremer or Koulibaly and stop that of the inexperienced players. I was deeply saddened when we were beaten by FC Porto

  3. Yeah, those inexperienced players Kalulu and Tomori sure do suck. I would much rather pay a small fee for loads of potential than an overinflated one for a player nearing their end. Bremer is not, but Koulibaly’s best years are behind him.

    1. Tomori wasn’t inexperienced, you always make something up to boost your claim. He played 90 matches before he joined Milan.
