According to reports, Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah is ‘undergoing a medical’ ahead of his move to European giants Bayern Munich.
Chalobah made 34 appearances for Chelsea last season across all competitions but he has been heavily linked with a move elsewhere this summer.
The 24-year-old is yet to make an appearance for the Blues this season and it’s recently been reported that he is a ‘priority’ target for Bayern Munich.
Journalist Ben Jacobs reported on Tuesday afternoon that Chelsea are “expecting a £50m fee” for Chalobah and Bayern “want to sign” him.
“Chelsea will be very busy with outgoings right up until the transfer window shuts,” Jacobs told Caught Offside.
“Bayern want to sign Trevoh Chalobah, who doesn’t look like getting many minutes if stays at Chelsea. The German champions have already had a loan bid rejected and are still in talks.
“Chelsea want a permanent sale and expect a £50m fee. Bayern will consider Southampton’s Armel Bella-Kotchap if they can’t strike a deal for Chalobah.”
A separate report from Football Insider claims this deal is close to completion as Chalobah is ‘undergoing a medical at Bayern Munich’. ‘The Bundesliga giants have agreed a deal with the Blues and are poised to sign Chalobah on an initial loan with an option to buy’.
Chalobah is set to reunite with former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel at Bayern Munich and the defender could be followed out of Stamford Bridge by Conor Gallagher.
Jacobs claims Chelsea “will listen to offers should they arrive around the £50m mark” for the England midfielder.
“Conor Gallagher also faces an uncertain future but has been playing for Chelsea under Mauricio Pochettino and is content to stay and fight for his place,” Jacobs added.
“Bayern, West Ham and Spurs have all looked at Gallagher during different parts of the window. Everton and Newcastle held a historical interest as well, but are not active currently.
“Brighton really like Gallagher, but not his wages, and that’s why nothing has materialised to date. Chelsea will listen to offers should they arrive around the £50m mark.
“Romelu Lukaku is another Chelsea outgoing that’s basically done. He is off to Rome today to finalise his season-long loan after a lengthy and messy saga involving Inter Milan and Juventus.
“My understanding is the fee is £8m (higher than reported) and Lukaku is more than halving his wage. Chelsea have also inserted a €45m release clause into his contract. This has always been the ballpark required for a permanent sale.”
