Journalist Simon Phillips reported on his Substack of the top teams interest in the youngster.
“I’ve been told Colwill is attracting interest from giant clubs Manchester City and Bayern Munich this week. It’s just interest at this stage, but Colwill is certainly becoming a player that many big clubs are watching and aware of”.
