CHELSEA starlet Levi Colwill is reportedly attracting interest from Arsenal and Leicester following his impressive loan spell at Huddersfield.

The 19-year-old centre-back has helped the Terriers reach the Championship play-off final against Nottingham Forest.

And according to Goal, there will be a host of scouts from Premier League clubs in attendance at Wembley on Sunday to watch him in action.

They state that Arsenal and Leicester are keeping tabs on the defender’s situation having made inquiries over a potential transfer.

Meanwhile the likes of Brighton, Crystal Palace and Southampton will be keeping a close eye on how he fares against Forest at the Home of Football.

The news outlet adds that Mikel Arteta has identified the England youth international as a target as he aims to add depth to his squad following their return to Europe.

Arteta is said to be in the market for a left-sided centre-back, but it remains to be seen whether Chelsea would sell Colwill to their London rivals.

SunSport understands that former Blues gaffer Frank Lampard is keen to snap up the youngster to bring him to Everton.

But unlike other teams, Lampard is prepared to take him on loan for a season to further his development.

It is understood that Colwill, who is tied down at Stamford Bridge until 2025, will be given a chance in pre-season to impress Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel.

Colwill has enjoyed an excellent season at the John Smith’s Stadium – chipping in with two goals and one assist in 31 games in all competitions.

His performances have seen him draw comparisons to Chelsea legend John Terry – especially after choosing to wear the same No 26 shirt.

Speaking earlier this month, the teenager said: “I’ll take it, I’m not going to complain. It’s not a bad thing to be called the new John Terry.

“I haven’t made the comparison myself so the fans and media can make whatever comparisons they want to make, it isn’t going to affect me.

“John Terry is a club legend and leader, someone every centre-back at Chelsea should look up to. A great guy and player. I’ve not had the chance to speak to him too much.

“When he was around the academy building we’d have the odd little chat but it’d be more of a, ‘Hi, how are you?’, kind of thing, not on a personal level about football or things like that.”
