Trevoh Chalobah has been linked with a Chelsea departure, with Jose Mourinho’s Roma set to strike in January.

According to Corriere dello Sportthe former Chelsea boss is looking to add Chalobah to his England contingent in Italy – joining Chris Smalling and Tammy Abraham in Rome.

The 23-year-old has struggled to get between the Blues’ action this season and a loan transfer from the club seems the most likely outcome.

Chalobah had a positive breakthrough year at Chelsea during the 2021-2022 season, but only played 90 minutes for the club this season.

With Thomas Tuchel, a fan of the defender, gone, it looks like there will be very few minutes under new boss Graham Potter.

However, Chelsea are unlikely to approve a final departure for Chalobah, so a loan deal to Italy would suit both sides.

Speak with Talk sportthe former England U21 international, said: ‘I feel like when the opportunity comes, it comes.

“I will always be patient, because playing for a club like this is not easy, there will always be competition.”

Competition is currently extremely high in Chelsea’s defensive ranks with new summer signings Wesley Fofana, Kalidou Koulibaly and Marc Cucurella added to the squad.

However, Chalobah’s goals have remained the same – despite the newcomers.

“I’m trying not to focus on the noise from outside and focus on what I’m doing and what I want to do this season. That is to get myself into the team and play a lot of games this season.”

If Chalobah is loaned out to “play a lot of games”, Chelsea fans will see a stay in Italy as a good education for their child.

Former Blues Fikayo Tomori and Abraham have both enjoyed their time in Italy after leaving Chelsea.

Tomori helped lead AC Milan to the 2021-22 Scudetto and Abraham contributed well to Roma’s 2021-22 win in the Europa Conference League.
