West Ham United plan to make a loan offer for the talented Chelsea defender

West Ham

West Ham United are reportedly plotting a move for the Chelsea defender, Trevoh Chalobah. David Moyes is looking for defenders ahead of the start of the new Premier League season. Reportedly, The Hammers have had Chalobah in their minds for a some time now.

West Ham were grabbing the headlines recently because of their club captain Declan Rice’s big money move to Arsenal. The deal was reportedly worth £105m. It is a big loss for West Ham as Rice was arguably their best player. However, with the huge amount of money coming in, David Moyes now has a big budget to rebuild and bring in talented new players into the club and strengthen his side.

Chelsea are willing to let go of Chalobah this summer

Sources have suggested that Chelsea are ready to let go of Chalobah this summer. After the signing of Axel Disasi, Pochettino apparently doesn’t have Trevoh is his plans. Therefore, the new Blues manager has informed the English player to find a new club. Multiple clubs from Europe along with 3 Premier League clubs, including West Ham, have shown the desire to sign Chalobah.

According to TeamTalk, Crystal Palace and Everton are the two other PL teams, who have shown interest in the defender. Apart from these two clubs, Monaco, Lyon, Wolfsburg, Borussia Dortmund, Roma and Napoli too are planning a move for Chalobah.

The deal might not be easy to finalise

West Ham currently lead the race to sign the 24-year old from Chelsea. They are even reported to be in talks with Chelsea. However, the deal might be easy to finalise for The Hammers. With Chelsea looking to offload the player, a loan deal might not sound very appealing to them. They would prefer to have a permanent deal for Chalobah, so they can also get a decent amount of money in exchange of him. They have reportedly set a price tag of £40 million for Trevoh Chalobah. Therefore, West Ham might have to go for a permanent deal, if they really wish to bring Trevoh Chalobah in.
