Chalobah set for Chelsea departure after Disasi signing

Trevoh Chalobah faces an uncertain future at Stamford Bridge after Chelsea agreed a £38.6 million deal to secure the services of Axel Disasi, according to Standard Sport.

While Chalobah has been crucial in Mauricio Pochettino’s pre-season preparations, the young centre-back believes his opportunities will be restricted this season.

With Thiago Silva, Levi Colwill and Benoit Badiashile ahead of him in the pecking order, Chalobah is now yearning for regular playing time elsewhere.

Chalobah reportedly wants to secure a spot in the England squad ahead of the 2024 European Championship next summer.

Serie A club Inter Milan have been linked with a move for Chalobah, but Chelsea’s £45 million price tag is a stumbling block.

Disas’s arrival at Stamford Bridge will offer Pochettino a versatile defensive option.

Not only can Disasi excel in central defence, but he also possesses the ability to perform as a right-back.

Having made three appearances for France during the recent World Cup in Qatar, Disasi’s experience and potential will be a big boost for Chelsea.

The need to reinforce their defence increased following Wesley Fofana’s unfortunate knee injury, which will sideline the Frenchman for an extended period.

Pochettino acknowledged this necessity after Chelsea’s convincing 2-0 victory over Fulham in a pre-season friendly held in Washington.

It will be interesting to see how the situation unfolds for Chalobah and Chelsea.

He has been a reliable player for the Blues since returning from his loan spell in France in 2021, but it looks like his future will be elsewhere.
