Nottingham Forest are now discussing the idea of signing Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah.

That is according to a report from The Sun. They claim that Premier League club Forest are plotting a move for Trevoh Chalobah, who’s still yet to play this season due to a long-term hamstring problem. The centre-back’s close to a full recovery, though.

It is understood that the Reds are now ready to discuss taking the 24-year-old to the City Ground on loan.

The report explains that a loan deal would cost roughly £1 million. Also, there would be talks in the summer over a permanent transfer in the summer if the player can regain full fitness.

The Sun adds that Chalobah is now deemed surplus to requirements under Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino, so is keen for a fresh start elsewhere.

In addition, the Blues would like to get his wages off their books. Spotrac claims that he’s on a £50,000-a-week deal in West London.

If sold, Chalobah would bring in pure profit on the balance sheet because he’s a product of the academy.

Nottingham Forest interested

We’ve seen in the past Chalobah’s quality in a Chelsea shirt when he’s at his best. Therefore, we’ve got no doubt he’d be a great pick up from Forest.

The centre-half, who can also play right-back, sounds destined for the exit doors based off the speculation above. However, don’t be surprised if he carves out a successful Premier League career elsewhere at a rival club.

Described as “fantastic” by Frank Lampard last year (Football.London), Chalobah can count himself unfortunate that things don’t look like they’ll happen for him in a Chelsea shirt moving forward. He’s been a solid and reliable defender during 63 first-team appearances for the Blues.

Interestingly, TuttoMercatoWeb have just claimed that Italian giants AC Milan are prepared to try sign Chalobah themselves. Will he opt to stay in England, or follow the path of several Chelsea stars of moving to the Serie A?
