‘Don’t sell him at any cost’ – Tuchel advises Abramovich to keep Chelsea star

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has advised the club’s owner, Roman Abramovich, not to sell Trevoh Chalobah at ‘any cost,’ Goal reports.

Chalobah came through Chelsea’s academy but is yet to make a first-team appearance for the club so far.

The 22-year-old has spent the last three seasons on loan at Ipswich Town, Huddersfield and Lorient, respectively.

Chalobah reported back to pre-season training with Chelsea this summer and Tuchel has been so impressed with the defensive midfielder that he has told the club not to keep him beyond this summer.

The report added that Tuchel also told Chelsea’s chiefs that he will consider using Chalobah as part of his first-team plans next year.

Meanwhile, Chalobah had drawn the interest of LaLiga side, Valencia, in the past.

During Chelsea’s pre-season campaign this summer, Tuchel used Chalobah as a defender, even though he is also capable of playing as a defensive midfield.

“We know him [Chalobah] from Lorient and Chalo has done very well in pre-season,” Tuchel said following Chelsea’s pre-season draw with Tottenham last week.

“He’s done very well in both games and within his potential and limits. That was nice to see. He played a good match, I agree.”
