His departure fits with the fact Chelsea still want to add one more defender on top of Nathan Ake and Kalidou Koulibaly. And the player himself also wants to leave if he is not going to be involved.
Ake is viewed as a player that can be versatile across the defence and in light of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen both leaving and Malang Sarr, Marcos Alonso, Emerson Palmieri and Cesar Azpilicueta likely following them through the exit door, two additions at the back are not enough and more depth would be ideal.
As reported previously on GiveMeSport, Presnel Kimpembe remains one of the top candidates to be signed while we cannot totally rule out Jules Kounde until he has signed for someone else.
The ins-and-outs are to have an impact on 19-year-old Colwill who was impressive with Huddersfield on loan last season and hoped to push himself into Tuchel’s thoughts.
However, chances are going to be limited and he will be given a voice in where he lands next.
