Chelsea will be hoping to build on their first win of the season by beating AFC Wimbledon in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday. 

A brace from Raheem Sterling and a late goal from Nicolas Jackson earned the Blues a 3-0 win over Luton Town on Friday, marking Mauricio Pochettino’s first win as the club’s manager.

The game against the Dons presents Pochettino with the opportunity to rotate his squad, and the likes of Mason Burstow and Mykhaylo Mudryk could be given an opportunity to impress.

One player that won’t be involved, though, is Trevoh Chalobah, as the defender looks set to complete a move away from the club.

According to Football Insider, the centre-back is undergoing a medical ahead of completing a move to Bayern Munich.

The report claims that the Englishman is set to join the German club on an initial loan that will also include an option-to-buy clause.

Chalobah looks set to join German champions Bayern Munich

Chalobah, 24, is a product of the Blues’ youth academy and made his senior debut for the club in 2018.

He was given his first proper first team opportunity in 2021 by then-manager Thomas Tuchel, who is now in charge of Bayern, and it appears that the duo could now be set for a reunion.

The Englishman featured regularly for the Blues throughout each of the past two seasons and has made 63 appearances for the club across all competitions, but he is yet to feature so far this term.

He has fallen behind the likes of Thiago Silva, Axel Disasi and Levi Colwill in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge, and now looks set to join the Bundesliga champions for the remainder of the current campaign and possibly even longer.

Chalobah signed a new contract with Chelsea as recently as November last year, committing his future to Stamford Bridge until 2028, but it appears that he is now on his way out of the club.
