It’s understood the West Londoners are also looking to cash in on Chalobah’s fellow academy graduate Conor Gallagher to avoid an FFP infringement.
Chalobah was on course to join Bayern on loan last September but pulled the plug on the deal by vowing to fight for his place in the Blues starting line-up.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino said: “If an offer appears, it is because another part of the club accepted it to move or they were trying to find a solution or the player wanted to leave.
” You cannot only blame the club, if an offer appears for Jesus [Perez, my assistant], it is because Jesus was open to receiving the offer, no?
“Come on, we need to also be clever. Did you receive an offer, Jesus [laughs]?!
“No, but it is always easy to blame the club and blame the club. In the same way, maybe the player was thinking inor before the season to move in .

“Maybe the player decides to stay after but that’s the. That is not, ‘Oh, the club accepted the offer’ or ‘The player wanted to move’.
“Come on, it is thethat we know very well.
