Despite the Blues’ defensive woes, Chalobah has impressed since returning from a season-long loan with Lorient.

And according to reports, his displays over the past season-and-half have caught the eye of German giants Bayern Munich.

That’s according to The Daily Mail, who claim the Bundesliga big boys are seeking to sign the 24-year-old on an initial loan deal.

It’s also said that Chelsea are willing to part ways with their academy product to help balance their books and not be in breach of Financial Fair Play regulations.

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 in pre-season or before the season to move in one direction.

“If after that didn’t happen, then I am fair with the player. I will give them a chance to perform and play here.

“Maybe the player decides to stay after but that’s the business. That is not, ‘Oh, the club accepted the offer’ or ‘The player wanted to move’.

“Come on, it is the business that we know very well.

“The players that are here if they deserve will have the opportunities to play but they need to be better than the others in their position.”

Chelsea will be back in action on Saturday afternoon, welcoming Preston North End to Stamford Bridge for their FA Cup third-round clash.
