Bayern Munich to reignite interest in signing Chelsea star in January

Bayern Munich could reportedly renew their interest in signing Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah in the January transfer window.

Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel was hoping to reunite with the player he once managed at Chelsea, but Bayern ultimately ran out of time to complete the deal.

Nottingham Forest were also interested in signing the 24-year-old and submitted a £25m bid in the final stages of the transfer window but Chalobah snubbed a move to Nottingham Forest.

Despite failing in their attempts to sign Chalobah in the summer, Bayern could revisit the deal when the window reopens in January.

Journalist Ben Jacobs said as quoted by Hard Tackle: “Trevoh Chalobah wanted the move to Bayern, but the German window closed a few hours earlier on September 1 and no agreement was reached.

“Bayern preferred a loan. Chalobah could have gone to Nottingham Forest but wasn’t keen. I don’t see him getting many Chelsea minutes and it wouldn’t surprise me if Bayern come back in with a loan offer in January.”

While Bayern would prefer a loan move, Chelsea are reportedly open to a permanent sale and are understood to be looking for a £50m fee.
