Chelsea have made a decision on the future of Trevoh Chalobah as Mauricio Pochettino faces a fight to keep hold of Levi Colwill at Stamford Bridge. football.london understands the Blues currently have no interest in a sale for the 20-year-old, but teams are following in case that changes.
Colwill has stated he must be playing regular football next season if he wants to break into the England senior squad, hinting at a potential ultimatum for Chelsea this summer. He said after the Under-21s’ European Championship victory: “We’re all pushing and knocking on the door.
“Everyone has to pay attention to every player here. I feel like this team we had was more than just individuals. In the past England might have lacked with that. We’ve always had great players but I think this team is so much different. I love this team.
“I’ll speak to my family, speak to everyone I need to and make a decision. I’ve got to play at the end of the day, to hopefully get there and go to the next [senior] camp.
“But if I’m here, I’ll still be happy. You’ve always got to be happy when you’re picked for any England age group. It’s an honour.”
According to the Evening Standard, Chelsea’s owners are open to selling Chalobah this summer should the right offer emerge. The English defender is behind fellow centre-backs Thiago Silva, Wesley Fofana, Benoit Badiashile and Levi Colwill in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.
Chalobah is thought to be willing to fight for his place at Chelsea and was in high spirits training under Pochettino this week. However, he wants regular first-team football as he targets an England debut ahead of the Euro 2024 tournament next summer.
