Trevoh Chalobah failed to secure a move away from Chelsea this summer and now the defender faces being frozen out by Mauricio Pochettino at Stamford Bridge.
That is according to the Evening Standard, who reports that Chalobah is now considered surplus to requirements at the London club once he returns from his current injury. The 24-year-old is sidelined with a hamstring injury and does not expect a prominent role on his return in late September.
Bayern Munich were one club interested in the centre-back this summer as former Blues manager Thomas Tuchel, who gave Chalobah his debut in 2021 at Chelsea, was willing to sign the defender on loan without the need to travel to Germany for a medical on deadline day with time running out.
Nottingham Forest were another team interested in the Blues star, states the report, but Chalobah wanted to join a club on a similar level to Chelsea.
