Bayern Munich has shortlisted Trevoh Chalobah as a potential target
Following an unsuccessful bid to sign Kepa Arrizabalaga, who later joined Real Madrid, as the new goalkeeper for Bayern Munich, former Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel has now identified Trevoh Chalobah as a prospective replacement for Benjamin Pavard.
The Chelsea academy graduate’s contract with the Blues is in effect until 2028; however, the club is considering the possibility of releasing the defender. This disposition has also been evident with the recent incoming players during this transfer window.
Tuchel is a big fan of the youngster, having worked with him last year. He was there for the youngster’s debut game and also during the Super Cup victory in 2021.
Reportedly, Chelsea has set an asking price of £22 million this year, a notable drop from the £40 million they turned down last year. However, the potential success of the Bundesliga champions in acquiring Chalobah remains uncertain due to complications arising from Pavard’s intended move to Inter Milan.
Chalobah’s stance on the move
From the outset, it has been apparent that the young player is determined to fight for his place at the club under Mauricio Pochettino. However, even after his performance in the preseason games, the manager remains unconvinced.
In this current transfer window, both West Ham and Inter Milan have made efforts to secure the defender’s services. Notably, both these clubs participate in European competitions. Nevertheless, Chalobah is persistently searching for a club that appeals to his preferences while also considering Chelsea’s interests.
If Chalobah is unable to secure a move to a new club and remains at the Bridge for the season, he will be vying for a position alongside newly signed players Axel Disasi and Benoit Badiashile, academy graduate Levi Colwill, as well as Wesley Fofana and Thiago Silva.
