Tottenham Hotspur target Trevoh Chalobah ‘would be tempted’ to leave Chelsea this summer, according to reputable journalist Paul Brown.
The lowdown: Wanted man
Linked to Tottenham in a report from the Evening Standard recently, Chalobah has also attracted attention from Roma and Inter Milan.
The 23-year-old England youth international has been subject to enquires from Nottingham Forest, Leeds, Everton and Southampton in this transfer window as his parent club attempt to lure Leicester City star Wesley Fofana to Stamford Bridge.
Now, one well-informed onlooker has shed some light on the situation and whether Chalobah would consider making a switch across London…
The latest: ‘I’m sure…’
He said: “Chalobah has a right to feel upset. He worked so hard to finally get a chance at Chelsea and he played in some big games last season without letting anyone down.
“He played well considering the manager doesn’t have a lot of faith in him and Chelsea have signed Koulibaly and now want another centre back, that has to be quite a kick in the teeth for him, so I’m sure he would be tempted to join another team playing in the Champions League.”
The verdict: Go for it
Seemingly deemed surplus to requirements at Chelsea should Fofana arrive, signing a player of Chalobah’s undoubted class and potential would be a sensational coup for the Lilywhites hierarchy.
Last season, the £18million valued Englishman scored four times and provided two assists across 30 first-team outings whilst earning a 7.23 SofaScore rating comprising of 4.8 successful duels, 2.1 clearances and 2.0 tackles per league game.
Dubbed a ‘monster’ by football talent scout Jacek Kulig, Chalobah – who shares similar stylistic traits to Ibrahima Konate, Joel Matip and Pau Torres (FBref) – would be a brilliant addition to Antonio Conte’s options for the here and now as well as being a smart long-term investment.
