West Ham United keen on Trevoh Chalobah

West Ham United are keen to explore a move for 24-year-old Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah, who could be made available in the summer. 

According to Football Insider, West Ham could pursue Trevoh Chalobah should Chelsea make him available for sale in the summer window. The 24-year-old Chelsea defender has been touted to leave the club to generate profit as a homegrown talent, and the Hammers are likely to make an approach. 

West Ham in Trevoh Chalobah chase

West Ham are eager to make their mark next season and probably become a top-six contender under Jule Lopetegui. The Spaniard’s manager took over from the long-serving David Moyes and will look to strengthen specific areas of the squad ahead of the new campaign. 

One of the critical areas would be central defence, with the Hammers thoroughly struggling for relevance during the season with their options there. Kurt Zouma has struggled, while the futures of Nayef Aguerd and Angelo Ogbonna are uncertain. Therefore, they will be in the market to bring in a new centre-back. 

They are now keen on 24-year-old Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah, who also interests Tottenham and some continental sides like Bayern Munich and AC Milan. However, the Hammers are keen to bring him and give him the opportunity to become a mainstay at the club from next season onwards. 

The Hammers will see the signing of the 24-year-old Chelsea defender as a big coup of sorts, and will hope it’s as good as their decision to sign Zouma a few years prior. With four years left on Chalobah’s deal, the decision will stay with the defender, who may see the merits of moving to the London Stadium but may also evaluate the offers coming in from other, bigger sides. 

Chelsea to sell Chalobah?

Chelsea are planning to sell some of their homegrown stars, including Chalobah and others. The Blues intend to raise funds through the same of their academy graduates, which will reflect as total profit on their books, as they were once close to breaching PSR rules. 

Despite their financial standing being a bit better than it was a few months ago, Chelsea will still look to sell Chalobah. They are reportedly demanding £25 million for the defender, who has been a shining light for the team in the last six-seven games of the previous campaign, eventually pushing the Blues to a sixth-placed finish.
