Nottingham Forest were in the market for Chelsea player Trevoh Chalobah in January and now three of Europe’s top clubs are in the market for the player.
Inter, RB Leipzig and Roma are all keen to try and sign the versatile performer once the transfer window reopens, according to Corriere dello Sport.
A number of Premier League clubs were thought to be keen in the summer, with Forest linked with a move by 90Min.
Now, if the Reds are still keen they would face a real fight to try and get any deal over the line once the transfer window comes around.
Chalobah is being eyed by Jose Mourinho the most and it’s also been claimed that Tottenham wanted him in the summer too.
It’s been a frustrating 2022/23 campaign for the centre-back. He fell completely out of favour under Thomas Tuchel and has played just once all season.
Chalobah will seek regular action in January and it would seem that a move abroad looks like the most viable option.
Interestingly, Tuchel utilised the youngster a lot last season and called him ‘fantastic’ after a goalscoring performance against Crystal Palace.
Forest were active in the summer and signed Moussa Niakhate, Willy Boly and Loic Bade to bolster their defensive ranks.
Three clubs in the market for Chalobah
If Forest remain in the bottom three when January comes around, it’s fair to say they will find it hard to attract players.
With Chalobah currently on the books at Chelsea, he will fancy his chances of leaving to play for a top club.
It’s perhaps somewhat surprising that the player didn’t leave in the summer. Now, he will have to try and impress Graham Potter in order to win a chance in the team.
The player will prove a good signing for someone. He can play as a central defender or in midfield and that versatility will be very useful.
For Forest, they might just see Chalobah as being out of reach for them now bigger clubs are in the mix.
