Levi Colwill is a man in demand, but Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel claims it's too early to know whether or not he'll depart this summer.

Colwill has risen through the Chelsea ranks, having joined the club at the age of 9.

In what proved to be a fantastic move, the defender secured his first loan deal last summer.

Huddersfield's performance in the Championship playoff final was outstanding, although he had an unfortunate moment of putting Nottingham Forest in the Premier League.

Colwill returns to Chelsea with his future hazy, especially as the Blues add new defenders.

Levi Colwill is a well-known man.

Chelsea have signed Kalidou Koulibaly and are urging for Sevilla's Jules Kounde to join the club.

Colwill may find it difficult to break into the Chelsea team, and a summer move has been suggested.

Colwill is likely to leave Chelsea in search of playing time elsewhere, according to Fabrizio Romano last week.

With Arsenal looking for a left-sided centre back, Mikel Arteta wanted to sign Colwill, according to the Daily Mail.

Although Colwill would not be an instant starter for the Gunners, it might not be easy to persuade Chelsea to sell to Arsenal.

Colwill has been included in Chelsea's pre-season squad for their American tour, giving him a chance to impress Thomas Tuchel.

The Chelsea manager has now commented on Colwill's future, implying that it is still too early to know what the defender's future holds.

Tuchel told The Metro that Colwill picked up a minor injury that put him off from completing his pre-season training.

Tuchel added that he hasn't seen enough of Colwill, but he will be given a chance to shine as Trevoh Chalobah did last summer, thus any move to Arsenal or anywhere else appears to be on the way.

Tuchel said it's too early to respond to Levi's situation. Everything I'd say now I'll probably have to take back or give a second opinion in a few weeks. He's an incredible player, and he's been out of training for several days.

Levi is still here, we just need to get additional impressions of him once he's out for several days in pre-season.

Trevoh Chalobah did well last season and Malang Sarr did the same, and this is the same situation for Levi, he added.
