Everton boss Frank Lampard plots move for Chelsea youngster Levi Colwill - report
Everton manager Frank Lampard is reportedly plotting a move for Chelsea youngster Levi Colwill in the summer.
According to the Sun, the former Blues midfielder is hoping that his ex club helps him out and lets him sign the 19-year-old defender.
He’s played a key role in getting Huddersfield to the play-off final and can get promoted with them before returning to his parent club.
Everton have sent their scouts to watch Colwill this season and the feedback they have received appears to be positive.
Things wouldn’t progress to such a level that Lampard would himself want the 19-year-old to sign for the Toffees once the window opens.
He knows that the club has had plenty of defensive issues this term and reinforcements are needed in the summer.
However, someone with no experience in top-flight football and very little at the senior game may not be the right bet for the club.
They’ve just been in the midst of a relegation battle and need quality players to strengthen their team and not youngsters who will not be ready for the first-team next season.
Big decisions will have to be made by the Toffees and if they plan on signing more defenders along with Colwill then it makes sense.
However, Chelsea may refuse to play ball as he’s one of their best young defenders and they could have a plan for him next season.
