Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping his side can continue their strong pre-season form when they face Borussia Dortmund on Thursday. 

The Blues have so far beaten Wrexham, Brighton and Hove Albion, and Fulham this summer, as well as drawing with Newcastle United.

Pochettino will be hoping his side can perform better than Chelsea did last season, when Thomas Tuchel, Graham Potter, and Frank Lampard all took charge of the club at different points as they finished 12th in the Premier League table.

In the meantime, it appears that Chelsea are hoping to offload one of their academy products despite the player being keen to stay at Stamford Bridge.

As per Football Insider, Chelsea are hoping to sell defender Trevoh Chalobah this summer after agreeing a deal to sign fellow centre-back Axel Disasi from Monaco.

The report claims that Disasi is set to undergo a medical ahead of a £38 million move from the Ligue 1 side to West London, but the deal could signal the end of Chalobah’s time with the club.

Chalobah looks likely to leave Chelsea this summer

Chalobah, 24, is a product of the club’s youth academy and had been involved in the first team at Stamford Bridge over the past two seasons.

In total the defender has now made 63 appearances for the Blues across all competitions, including 33 last season.

Previously, he had spent time on loan at Ipswich Town, Huddersfield Town, and French side Lorient.

Despite playing an important role for his boyhood club over the past two years, it is claimed that Chelsea will look to sell Chalobah this summer, and Inter Milan could be a potential suitor.

The Italian side are said to have been interested in the England under-21 international for around a year now, but the report claims that they will face competition from clubs in the Premier League and Europe for the player’s signature.

Chalobah is said to have visited Milan in the past 12 months, amid interest from the Serie A giants.
