The future of Trevoh Chalobah at Chelsea is now in some serious doubt.

Trevoh Chalobah, who’s now 24, is one of the several success stories to develop in Chelsea’s academy at Cobham.

The Blues defender came through the youth ranks at the club as a boy, making 63 first-team appearances in Chelsea colours so far.

However, has the English centre-back now played his final game for the club?

Tipped for Chelsea exit

Ryan Taylor, who works as a journalist for The Mirror, has posted on his own social account an update about Chelsea’s homegrown defender.

Apparently, sources are ‘convinced’ that Chalobah will exit Stamford Bridge when the January transfer window opens.

There’s interest from European clubs such as Inter Milan, AC Milan and RB Leipzig in the versatile youngster, who can play at centre-half or right-back to a high standard.

Ryan Taylor wrote on X: “On future of Trevoh Chalobah. Sources convinced he’ll leave Chelsea in January. Inter Milan, AC Milan & RB Leipzig among those who rate player. Not had it easy with injuries & lack of opportunities (last season). Could prove smart buy this winter.”

Trevoh Chalobah position

We’re not quite sure where Chalobah fits in the pecking order under Mauricio Pochettino, largely because he’s sat out the opening months of the season so far with an injury problem.

However, it sounds like he’ll be the next Chelsea academy graduate to go seek fame elsewhere.

TEAMtalk claimed last month that Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are all interested in the £45million-rated defender. However, journalist Florian Plettenberg reports on X that Bayern and Dortmund have since pulled out of the race for Chalobah.

In our view, Chalobah’s good enough to compete in any of the top squads across Europe. Unfortunately, Chelsea’s current group is stacked with top defenders at both centre-back and right-back, so a transfer in January could make sense for all parties.

It’s going to be pure profit on the transfer sheet if the club do cash in on the academy product.
