Highly rated academy defender called up to Chelsea senior squad » Chelsea News

We are already well aware of the immense quality that Chelsea have been producing through their youth ranks over the years, with a lot of time and investment spent on it.

Which is why it is no real surprise when you hear of one of the academy players being called up to the first team squad.

Thomas Tuchel has named PSG centre back Marquinhos as a summer target, read the full story here.

Especially when the name is Levi Colwill, a very highly rated defender from the youth group, a name that we have been hearing a lot about over recent months and a name you can expect to hear a lot more about in the coming months and years.

The 18-year old has been bought into the senior squad to replace the injured Andreas Christensen, according to Nizaar Kinsella of Goal (below).

Colwill is raved about at the club and will certainly be more than good enough should he get called upon in the season run-in.
