Trevoh Chalobah, a defender for Chelsea, may reportedly be up for sale during the January transfer window due to interest from Tottenham and Bayern Munich
Thiago Silva and Axel Disasi have been Mauricio Pochettino’s center-back pairing so far this season; Chalobah is yet to make an appearance. The 25-year-old is open to moving elsewhere in search of more playing time as he currently finds himself behind Silva, Disasi, and Levi Colwill in the pecking order.
According to Football365, this summer, Bayern Munich was interested in loaning Chalobah to them. After the defender declined a move to Nottingham Forest on the final day of the transfer window, Tottenham also expressed interest in him. Chalobah made his debut for Chelsea in 2021. His 63 outings for the London club have resulted in four goals.
But it’s evident that Pochettino isn’t convinced by Chalobah, and he wants to get rid of him in January to allay worries over Financial Fair Play. According to football, that is.Chelsea “are still looking to sell Chalobah in January,” according to London. They give him a value of around £50 million. According to the source, the defender is “facing exile” from the team and has been informed by the club’s administration that he might never again play for the Blues.
In order to maintain his fitness while out with a hamstring injury, Chalobah is said to have asked if he can play for the under-23s when he returns. His desire to quit the London club, as previously said, only grew once Chelsea signed Disasi this summer. There was a potential that Chalobah may replace Wesley Fofana after the Frenchman sustained a significant ACL injury that will likely keep him out for the duration of the season.
Though that doesn’t appear to be the case, Disasi has already demonstrated some strong performances this season. With that in mind, Chalobah’s career may benefit from a move away from Stamford Bridge. It remains to be seen if Tottenham or Bayern Munich would make a bid for him when the transfer window reopens.
