'What I'm told...': Romano says January move possible for 'fantastic' player Tottenham want
Tottenham tried to sign Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah close to the deadline and Fabrizio Romano has been speaking about him this weekend.
Reports had claimed that Spurs made a late loan move for Chalobah back in August. In the end, Chelsea blocked any approach for Chalobah as they tried to get their own deal for Wesley Fofana over the line. Since then, though, Chalobah has found game time hard to come by and is now down the pecking order.
And speaking on his YouTube channel last night, Fabrizio Romano says that there is every chance Chalobah leaves in January, amid talk of interest from Roma.
“From what I’m told there are already some conversations around with clubs interested in Chalobah. And so, there is a chance for him to leave the club in January. We will see if it will be a loan with a buy option, or a loan with a buy back clause, or just a straight loan,” Romano said.
“We will see. At the moment the situation is not advanced but there is a big chance for Chalobah to leave if the situation continues like this.”
Chalobah enjoyed a breakout season with the Blues last term. Indeed, Thomas Tuchel labelled him a ‘fantastic‘ talent after a number of fine performances saw him impress.
TBR’s View: Tottenham Should Try Again For Chalobah
It’s hard to envisage Chelsea letting Spurs sign Chalobah but there is definitely scope for Antonio Conte’s side to come back in for the young defender.
Chalobah would surely thrive under Conte and while game time might be an issue once more for him at Spurs, there would be opportunities in there as well.
Of course, Chalobah might look to other clubs to guarantee him those regular minutes. But for Spurs, it’s definitely worth them asking the question once again.
