Chelsea Consider Surprise Sale Of Promising Young Defender


Chelsea are considering selling defender Trevoh Chalobah this summer, according to

The 20-year-old is not part of Frank Lampard’s first-team plans for the upcoming campaign, and Huddersfield are keen on taking the player off the London club’s hands.

Chalobah has two years remaining on his current deal at Stamford Bridge and the Blues are believed to be tempted to cash in on the centre-back.

He spent last season out on loan at Ipswich Town but could not help the Tractor Boys avoid relegation from the Championship.

Chalobah’s prospects of breaking through at Chelsea look to be pretty remote. In addition to David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen and Kurt Zouma, he would have to supplant Fikayo Tomori in the pecking order.

With Jake Clarke-Salter having been loaned to Birmingham City, and Ethan Ampadu having made the switch to RB Leipzig, Chalobah may well be heading towards the exit too.
