Spurs could eye Trevoh Chalobah

Tottenham Hotspur could eye Trevoh Chalobah as a replacement for Japhet Tanganga…

What’s the word?

According to Standard Sport, Spurs are one of the several teams showing an interest in the Chelsea centre-back ahead of deadline day on September 1st.

And transfer insider Dean Jones believes that the north Londoners aren’t afraid to sign a player from their rivals as there are some concerns over squad depth at Hotspur Way.

He told GIVEMESPORT:

“They are in for a defender if Tanganga leaves and they see no real problem whose door they have to knock on. There is a small concern here over depth.”

Bye-bye Tanganga?

The 23-year-old centre-back proved his credentials last season when he emerged as an important player for Blues boss Thomas Tuchel.

Thiago Silva (7.08) was the only defender graded with a better average WhoScored rating than Chalobah (7.03) last term after he made 30 appearances in all competitions, including starts in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup final.

Do you want Chalobah at Spurs?

YES!

YES!

NO!

NO!

Once described as a “monster” by scout Jacek Kulig, the £20k-per-week Chelsea academy graduate averaged two tackles per game, which was more than any other centre-back and was second to Silva once again in terms of passing accuracy (90.6%). Evidently, he has the intelligence to read the match well.

And he could be the perfect stop-gap replacement for Tanganga, who is currently a valuable member of the squad as he is a homegrown talent – something that Spurs lack right now.

Despite being lauded as “really special“, the fellow England U21 international has struggled to break into the first-team under manager Antonio Conte, having been restricted to 11 appearances since his arrival back in November.

As such, the 23-year-old could be expendable with Chalobah being viewed as his likely replacement, though time is running out to set these deals in motion with less than a week to go until deadline day.
