Colwill had emerged as a popular target as Liverpool seek to bolster their centre-back ranks this summer, with his skillset ideal for Klopp’s side.
Though that deal is “yet to be signed” there is no expectation that the 20-year-old will change his decision, having been convinced by Mauricio Pochettino.
Pochettino arrived as new Chelsea manager earlier in the summer, and during their pre-season tour of the United States claimed Colwill “can be one of the greatest centre-backs in England.”
However, while the Englishman is likely to be off the table now, there remains a strong chance Liverpool add to their defensive group this summer.
The likes of Micky van de Ven, Perr Schuurs, Goncalo Inacio, Antonio Silva, Nayef Aguerd, Jarrad Branthwaite and Marc Guehi have all been linked in recent months.
Furthermore, the issues faced by Man City in their pursuit of RB Leipzig’s Josko Gvardiol have even led to muted hopes of a deal for the 21-year-old.
That seems fanciful at this stage, though Gvardiol would be an even better fit than Colwill – despite not qualifying as a homegrown player.
