Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah will fight for his place despite ongoing links to Tottenham Hotspur.
Sources suggest Trevoh Chalobah will be sold by Chelsea in January despite wanting to fight for his place.
This is according to Fabrizio Romanowho discussed Chalobah’s transfer situation on Twitter.
Romano claims Chalobah turned down a £25million move to Nottingham Forest before the transfer deadline because he wanted to move to Bayern Munich.
Chalobah will now fight for his place, but Romano claims he has spoken to sources who claim the defender is expected to leave the club in January.
Tottenham Hotspur is a potential destination for Trevoh Chalobah
This will be interesting news for Tottenham.
Romano claimed on deadline day that Spurs had made a very late attempt to sign Chalobah on loan.
Unsurprisingly, Chelsea didn’t approve this move, but it sounds like Chalobah will be frozen out at Stamford Bridge.
Football London claim Chalobah was told he would have to be excluded from the squad by January because he refused to leave before the deadline.
This report adds that Tottenham are long-time admirers of Chalobah and may reignite their interest in January.
Chalobah may well be fighting to stay at Chelsea, but the Blues are desperate to sell – and Spurs could be ready to take the plunge.
Chalobah has to leave Chelsea
We can’t blame Chalobah for being picky when choosing his club.
Ideally, Chalobah needs to prioritize first-team football, but the chance to rejoin Thomas Tuchel at Bayern Munich was too good to ignore.
Bayern could well move on now and Chalobah simply needs to leave Chelsea to be able to play regularly in the future.
The arrival of Axel Disasi from Monaco in the summer was pretty much the end for Chalobah, as Chelsea spent big on a new right centre-back.
Chalobah simply won’t get the role he needs at Chelsea, and Tottenham – who are keen to sign their own centre-back in 2024 – could well give him the chance he needs.
