Klopp has held direct transfer talks with Chelsea star, Blues furious and could report Liverpool to the FA.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has reportedly held direct talks with Chelsea defender Levi Colwill over a potential transfer, and it could land the Reds in trouble.
According to journalist Felix Johnston in the tweet below, Chelsea are furious with this and could report Liverpool to the FA, while they’re also angered by Brighton’s persistence in trying to sign the talented young centre-back following his loan spell there last season.
Colwill looks like one of the biggest young talents in the country at the moment, and if he doesn’t play regularly at Chelsea he should surely move on.
Further to this, Jürgen Klopp has held a phone call with Colwill directly.
Chelsea are extremely angered by Brighton & Liverpool’s persistence, as they have said many times directly that Levi is not for sale.

He may have the opportunity to compete for a spot in the first squad if Mauricio Pochettino and other important figures at CFC take a careful look at him during preseason.
Even with last season’s setback, Klopp has performed admirably for much of his time at Anfield, so it may potentially be an enticing choice for Colwill.
Since Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk aren’t getting any younger, LFC would be wise to center their revamped defense around a star player like Colwill.
