1 minute read

Inter Milan’s Pursuit of Chelsea’s Star

Inter Milan, the celebrated Serie A side, are progressing in their negotiations to acquire Chelsea’s dynamic star, Trevoh Chalobah, according to inside sources. This revelation comes after last month’s registration of Inter’s interest in the 24-year-old, marking a significant move from the Italian giants.

The Italian club’s enthusiasm for the Chelsea defender has been apparent throughout the season, with initial inquiries about his availability lodged in January. However, the wheels now seem to be truly in motion.

Chalobah’s Desire to Remain at Stamford Bridge

Despite Inter Milan’s keen interest, Chalobah’s inclination leans towards remaining in the English capital. The defender’s heart seems firmly rooted at Stamford Bridge, a sentiment that could potentially disrupt the negotiations in the coming weeks.

The Chelsea star, whose contract runs until 2028, following an extension signed in November last year, appears resolute in his decision to stay in London for the next season. Nevertheless, the club’s decision on his future remains up in the air.

Chalobah’s Impressive Performance Record

Chelsea’s Trevoh Chalobah is no stranger to the field, having made 33 appearances across all competitions last season, starting in 24 of those matches. His performance on the pitch has not gone unnoticed, with several clubs showing interest in the Englishman.

Potential Swap Deal on the Cards?

Interestingly, Chalobah’s current club, Chelsea, seem to be weighing the possibility of including him in a potential swap deal for top target Moises Caicedo, adding another layer of intrigue to the ongoing negotiations.

Roberto de Zerbi’s team, Inter Milan, are understood to be interested in a possible switch between Caicedo and Chalobah. If successful, this swap could see Chelsea’s sought-after midfielder heading to Italy, while Ecuador’s prized talent might find a new home at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea Closing in on £80m Deal for Moises Caicedo

Earlier this month (13 July), sources disclosed that Chelsea are poised to secure a staggering £80 million deal for Caicedo. The Ecuador international has agreed to personal terms with the Blues, pushing his move to the London club ever closer. This move could potentially influence the future of Trevoh Chalobah, making the next few weeks critical for the parties involved.
