Chalobah suffered a hamstring injury last October and has been out of action until now. The English midfielder once played impressively under Thomas Tuchel and the departure of the former Borussia Dortmund coach made him gradually ‘disappear’.
Mauricio Pochettino is looking for a new centre-back next summer with Thiago Silva set to leave Stamford Bridge. He doesn’t have too many options left in his hands and the Argentine strategist also doesn’t like a player like Chalobah.
West Ham still maintains its interest in the English defender, AC Milan has made a loan offer while other Premier League clubs such as Nottingham Forest, Fulham, Crystal Palace or several other teams abroad still following.
Chelsea wants a permanent transfer, but with the transfer market about to close and Chalobah wanting to leave as soon as possible, the Blues could change their mind.
A final-day loan deal could take place and the deal will be restarted in the summer.
