Bayern Munich hold initial talks to sign Levi Colwill

Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich have reportedly initiated discussions to sign 21-year-old Chelsea prospect Levi Colwill this summer.

According to reputed German journalist Florian Plettenberg, Levi Colwill is the subject of interest from Bayern Munich. The Bavarian giants are keen on signing a centre-back in the summer transfer window. And they have already held preliminary talks over a possible move for the 21-year-old Chelsea prospect, who has emerged as an alternative to Jonathan Tah.

The rise of Levi Colwill

Levi Colwill is one of the best young prospects in his homeland. A native of Southampton, he joined Chelsea in 2011 and has come leaps and bounds in the past decade. However, the young Englishman had to bide his time before establishing a foothold in the first-team squad at Stamford Bridge, with loan spells at Huddersfield Town and Brighton & Hove Albion helping his cause.

Colwill was a regular for most of the 2023/24 season, amassing nearly 2,500 minutes of game time across 32 appearances in all competitions, chipping in with one goal and one assist. Meanwhile, the 21-year-old has captured the attention of several high-profile clubs with his progress.

Recent reports have linked the English international with European bigwigs like Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain. However, a move to Bayern Munich might be on the cards if Colwill leaves Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

Will Colwill join Bayern Munich?

Bayern Munich will delve into the market for a centre-back in the summer transfer window. Dayot Upamecano and Kim Min-jae blew hot and cold for much of the 2023/24 campaign, while Matthijs de Ligt faces an uncertain future at the Allianz Arena. So, it behoves the Bavarian outfit to sign a top-class central defender.

Jonathan Tah is thus Bayern Munich’s priority target, although the Bundesliga giants have also set their sights on Levi Colwill. Florian Plettenberg has added that Bayern Munich and Chelsea have already held preliminary talks over a move for the 21-year-old English international.

Recent reports have claimed that Colwill will hold showdown talks with Enzo Maresca over his future at Chelsea. That might give Bayern Munich some hope of securing his services in the summer transfer window. However, it will be interesting to see if Die Roten can sign the young Englishman from Chelsea in the coming weeks.
