Liverpool have allegedly identified Chelsea promising defender Levi Colwill as a potential transfer target in the summer.
When each defender is available, Jurgen Klopp has a wide array of options to choose from, however, the Merseyside Reds head-coach has had to contend with fitness issues in the middle of his defence throughout this term.
Ibrahima Konate, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk have all spent periods on the sidelines, ensuring that Nat Phillips has remained at Anfield rather than been allowed to join a new team.
However, at least half of those centre-back have their futures up in the air at present, including Joe Gomez and Matip who have failed to impress this season.
Phillips will also likely leave on a permanent or temporary basis during the summer, and it leaves German manager to contemplate alternatives and new competition for Konate and Van Dijk.
According to Football Insider, the Merseyside Reds officials have been impressed with a progress of Colwill during 2022-23.
After impressing on loan at Championship side Huddersfield Town last term, the England Under-21 was allowed to link up with Brighton on a similar deal.
