German club RB Leipzig joins five-team race for Chalobah

RB Leipzig have joined the five-team race to sign Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah who could be loaned out this summer.

A graduate of Chelsea’s academy who has been with the club since the age of eight, Chalobah had a breakout year last season and was seen regularly in Thomas Tuchel’s first 11.

As a result, the Blues offered the centre-back a new deal last November, which keeps the 23-year-old at Stamford Bridge until 2026.

Tuchel is after another centre-back during the current window following the arrival of Kalidou Koulibaly and Leicester City’s Wesley Fofana is the man the German coach wants.

Should the Frenchman arrive at Stamford Bridge, the London club would be willing to let Chalobah leave for a season on loan, reports the Evening Standard.

Chelsea prefers to loan rather than sell which makes a move to Tottenham unlikely.
