Paul Robinson believes that Chelsea will not sell Trevoh Chalobah to Tottenham Hotspur in January.
While the speculation linking Chalobah with a move to Spurs has not stopped right from the summer transfer window, some contradictory reports on the potential transfer have emerged over the last week and a half.
It was explained that the 24-year-old is not expected to fully recover from his hamstring injury until the end of January, which is why Spurs are looking at other alternatives.
However, a couple of days ago, journalist Dean Jones told GiveMeSport that a move to the Lilywhites is very much on the cards for Chalobah, backing Ange Postecoglou’s men to reignite their interest in the player.
Would Chelsea sell Trevoh Chalobah to Tottenham?
Robinson expects the centre-back to leave Stamford Bridge in January but he does not think the West London club would sell the defender to Tottenham.

The former Spurs goalkeeper told Football Insider: “I think Chalobah has still got a lot to prove in his career. He won’t go to Tottenham, though, because the two clubs don’t do business.
“Historically, and more in the past, the two clubs just don’t do business together. There are going to be players who fall foul at Chelsea, and at his age – he’ll want to play football.
“These players are sometimes going to top clubs around Europe. Look at Fikayo Tomori, he’s playing at the top level. It can be good for players like Chalobah who play with a different style. I just can’t see him at Tottenham.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Tottenham did not do business with Chelsea for a long while after the bad blood from the controversial Willian transfer in 2013.
However, with the Blues’ ownership changing last year, I suspect that the two clubs will now be on more favourable terms, which is probably why Spurs approached Chelsea for Chalobah and Gallagher in the summer.
