Report: Pochettino has now decided to move on alleged Spurs target 

The Daily Mirror have claimed that Chelsea are now ready to sell rumoured Tottenham target Trevoh Chalobah after Mauricio Pochettino decided the centre-back is not part of his plans.

It was reported by Sky Sports on transfer deadline day in the summer that Tottenham were ‘exploring a possible late deal’ for Chalobah and that they had made ‘initial contact’ with Chelsea over a potential deal for the 24-year-old.

However, the move did not materialise at the time and it was subsequently reported by Football London last month that Spurs could reignite their interest in the English centre-back in January.

Last week, 90min claimed that Chalobah himself is ‘ready to leave’ Chelsea when the transfer window opens and has had conversations with Pochettino about his future.

Chelsea have made a decision on Trevoh Chalobah

The Mirror have now asserted that Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has given Pochettino total transfer control ahead of January and that the Argentine has decided that Chalobah is not part of his plans.

It is alleged that the expectation at the West London Club and among the player’s entourage is that they would part ways at the end of this year.

The report adds that Bayern Munich showed an interest in the 24-year-old in the summer and they are expected to return again in January, with Thomas Tuchel being a fan of the Chelsea academy graduate.

Spurs Web Opinion

There is no doubt that Tottenham will be in the market for a centre-back (potentially even two if Dier leaves) in January and Chalobah seems to tick several boxes, given his tactical profile, age, and homegrown status. So, I would not be surprised if Spurs explored a deal for the 24-year-old.
