Chelsea are reportedly open to allowing defender to leave Stamford Bridge on loan before the end of the transfer window.
That’s according to a recent report from The Athletic, who claims the 23-year-old centre-back is eager to rack up more first-team minutes.
🚨 Chelsea open to Trevoh Chalobah loan before deadline. #CFC respect wish for game time but won’t allow buy option or obligation. Particular interest from PL & also Serie A sides in European comp – important to 23yo defender if moves abroad @TheAthleticUK https://t.co/LlDE3kahXD

Despite bursting on the scene last season, Chalobah has struggled to cement a place down in Thomas Tuchel’s first team plans.
Continually left out in favour of the more experienced Thiago Silva and new signing Kalidou Koulibaly, Chalobah, who has four years left on his deal, could find himself at a temporary club for the remainder of the 2022-23 season.
It appears there are multiple clubs interested in recruiting the young defender, including some of the Blues’ domestic rivals, so it is going to be interesting to see what country the club and the player opt for.
Since making his first debut approximately 12 months ago, Chalobah has gone on to feature in 30 matches, in all competitions, directly contributing to six goals along the way.
