PSG interested in signing this Chelsea star

French club Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing Chelsea defender Levi Colwill, according to French football expert Jonathan Johnson.

Levi Colwill has played a key role in Mauricio Pochettino’s team this season after impressing on loan at Brighton last season.

Johnson told Caughtoffside: “As recently reported by Ben Jacobs, PSG like Levi Colwill of Chelsea and may be prepared to play the long game to get him.

The former Brighton defender is a player PSG have ear-marked as a potential option in the defensive positions, but he’s probably more of an alternative at the moment to the one they have made their priority, and that’s Leny Yoro.

“The young Lille centre-back is the outstanding candidate for PSG – he is the player PSG absolutely want to be able to bring in this summer. He’s also keen to join PSG and further his career with them. He also has the added bonus of being French and from the Paris region, so it’s a good fit for where the PSG project is going.

“Colwill is someone PSG will look to and explore in case they can’t sign Yoro, but I think the idea that they might wait a bit longer is accurate, because he could probably still do with more time to develop at Chelsea. He is a player that PSG are looking at with a view to the long term.”
