Fulham eyeing double swoop of Thiago Silva, Trevoh Chalobah

Fulham will reportedly look to sign Chelsea defensive duo Thiago Silva and Trevoh Chalobah in the summer transfer window.

According to a report by TEAMtalk, Fulham will look to sign multiple centre-backs in the summer transfer window. The Cottagers are plotting a double defensive raid on Chelsea for Thiago Silva and Trevoh Chalobah, with the former set to become a free agent on July 1.

Thiago Silva has been one of the best defenders of his generation, having gone from strength to strength throughout his career. The Brazilian defender has hardly shown any signs of age catching up with him, having been one of the best performers for Chelsea since arriving from Paris Saint-Germain in a Bosman move four years ago.

However, Silva’s stint with Chelsea will end after the 2023/24 season culminates, as he will depart from Stamford Bridge as a free agent in the summer transfer window. So, it is hardly surprising that speculation surrounding the veteran defender’s future has been growing like wildfire.

On the other hand, Trevoh Chalobah has endured a trial by fire thus far this season. Mauricio Pochettino took some time to warm up to the Chelsea academy graduate. However, the 24-year-old has been a regular since regaining his fitness, turning out 12 times in the last few weeks. However, Chalobah’s future is uncertain heading into the summer transfer window.

Chelsea will likely listen to offers for Chalobah in the summer transfer window. And his next destination might be Fulham, with the West London club also keen on signing Thiago Silva alongside the 24-year-old. Silva might only be a short-term solution, considering his advancing age.

However, his experience and leadership ability will be helpful to Fulham, especially within the dressing room. As for Chalobah, he can be the long-term replacement for Tosin Adarabioyo, who will leave the Cottagers as a free agent in the summer transfer window. So, the Chelsea academy graduate has emerged as a viable target for Fulham.

As for Silva, a return to Brazil might be on the cards. But it will be interesting to see if Fulham can beat the competition to the signature of the outgoing Chelsea defender, with Trevoh Chalobah also a viable target for the West London club.
