Chalobah Now Set To Stay At Chelsea With New Contract In The Pipeline After Impressing Debut

Posted by

Chelsea are in talks with defender Trevoh Chalobah about extending his contract after impressing Thomas Tuchel. The 22-year-old had been linked with a loan move this season, but he is now expected to stay at Chelsea.

Chalobah capped off a successful pre-season with a fantastic goal in Saturday’s 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Emerson Palmieri, a defender with the Blues, has joined Lyon on loan for the rest of the season. Lyon will pay around £420,000 for the 27-year-old Brazilian-born Italy international, who joined Chelsea from Roma in January 2018. He can play at left-back or wing-back.

Emerson, who was a member of Italy’s Euro 2020 winning squad, made his 71st Chelsea appearance in the Premier League opener against Crystal Palace.
