With the start of the new season just days away, Premier League clubs will be working hard to prepare for the opening round of fixtures.

Reigning champions Manchester City face newly-promoted Burnley in the first game on Friday evening, before Chelsea welcome Liverpool to Stamford Bridge on Sunday in arguably the pick of the first round of matches.

This summer has been one of huge change for the Blues so far with several first team players – including Mason Mount, Kai Havertz and Mateo Kovacic – having departed West London.

New manager Mauricio Pochettino has been boosted by new signings, namely Christopher Nkunku, Nicolas Jackson and Axel Disasi.

According to report, though, another player could soon be on his way out of Stamford Bridge.

As reported by Football Insider, fellow Premier League side Everton are interested in signing Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah.

The 22-year-old is a product of the Blues’ academy and has previously spent time on loan at Ipswich Town, Huddersfield Town and French side Lorient.

Chalobah looks likely to leave Chelsea this summer

He returned to the capital in 2021 and was part of the Blues’ first team for the following campaign, making 30 appearances across all competitions.

The Englishman – capped three times by his country at under-21 level – also played fairly regularly last term, making 33 appearances.

His chances of featuring regularly during the upcoming campaign have been hindered in recent weeks, though, with Levi Colwill signing a new contract and Chelsea finalising a move for fellow centre-back Axel Disasi.

The report claims that Chalobah is now likely to leave Chelsea this summer, and the Toffees are one of several clubs plotting a potential move for the player.

Crystal Palace and West Ham United are also said to be interested in the former Ipswich man, as well as unnamed sides from Europe.

Chalobah is currently contracted to Chelsea until 2028 having signed a new deal in November last year.
