Aston Villa plotting Trevoh Chalobah loan move

Aston Villa are interested in signing Trevoh Chalobah on loan before the end of the summer transfer window…

What’s the word?

That’s according to the Daily Mail, who claim that the Midlands side are one of several teams plotting a move for the out-of-favour Chelsea defender.

Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur, as well as Serie A duo Inter Milan and AS Roma are also mooted with interest in the 23-year-old centre-back.

The arrival of Kalidou Koulibaly and the Blues’ desire to sign Wesley Fofana from Leicester City means the former England U21 international is likely to struggle for regular minutes under Thomas Tuchel this campaign.

Do you want Chalobah at Villa?

YES!

YES!

NO!

NO!

Get it done

A move to Villa Park for the season could be beneficial for all parties.

Villa boss Steven Gerrard needs further reinforcements to his backline following a serious injury to Diego Carlos in only the second game of the new campaign, whilst the 6 foot 3 colossus needs game time.

Chalobah played an important role for Chelsea last season, where he made 30 appearances in all competitions, including two cup final appearances in both the FA Cup and Carabao Cup.

That also included a pair of league matches against Villa, where he was part of the Blues side that absolutely bullied Danny Ings and Ollie Watkins.

In the game at Stamford Bridge, the Villans duo were restricted to just two attempts on target with the former restricted to just four passes all game. Chalobah, meanwhile, racked up four tackles, five clearances and won a whopping 75% of his aerial duels, via SofaScore.

How much did Ezri Konsa cost Aston Villa?

It was a similar story back in Birmingham, where in the 45 minutes the England youth international was on the pitch, Villa failed to register a shot on target or create a big chance. Both Ings and Watkins were graded below a mediocre 6.6 rating too.

Only Thiago Silva (7.08) managed a better average WhoScored rating for the 2021/22 campaign than Chalobah (7.03) when it came to Tuchel’s defensive options, so perhaps it should be a surprise to see the Englishman – who journalist Oliver Harbord dubbed an “exciting talent” – available for a move.

Also lauded as a “monster” by scout Jacek Kulig, it’s evident that Chalobah could be a short-term fix to Gerrard’s defensive conundrum and as such, sporting director Johan Lange should look to complete this loan move before time runs out.

The 23-year-old must become their sixth arrival of the summer.

AND in other news, Villa make offer for £20k-p/w Carlos replacement, it’s a no-brainer for Lange…
