Levi Colwill open to Bayern Munich move

Chelsea defender Levi Colwill is reportedly open to joining Bayern Munich this summer following interest from the Bavarian club.

After enjoying a breakout campaign on loan at Brighton in the 2022-23 season, Colwill returned to the Blues last summer and was expected to be a key fixture under then-boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Despite starting the club’s first ten Premier League league games, injuries went on to hamper his involvement in what proved to be a tumultuous season for the club.

Mail Sport reported earlier this week that Bayern are keen on bolstering their defence this summer, with Vincent Kompany having shortlisted the England international in his efforts to do just that.

According to a report from Sky Sports Germany, Colwill is willing to consider a potential move to the Bundesliga when the transfer window opens.

Chelsea are said to be determined to keep Colwill at Stamford Bridge, with Bayern unwilling to meet the club’s asking price at this stage.

Colwill currently has five years remaining on his current deal with the Blues, with the club having an option for an additional year, complicating any potential move.

Die Roten are also understood to be interested in Bayer Leverkusen’s Jonathan Tah, after the German defender was a key component in Xabi Alonso’s title-winning side last season.

As part of their summer rebuild, Bayern are open to selling six players during the transfer window, with Matthijs De Ligt and Joshua Kimmich leading the list.

Leon Goretzka, Kingsley Coman, Serge Gnabry and Noussair Mazraoui are the other four reportedly on the chopping block.
