Inter Aiming for Chelsea Talent Before Securing Acerbi

Trevoh Chalobah has many fans at Inter, starting with his former teammate Romelu Lukaku, who personally suggested him to the Inter management. The brass of the Italian club requested him on loan, and they are waiting for an answer from Chelsea.

As per La Gazzetta dello Sport, the 23-year-old would welcome a move to Milan as well. He has spent the first three matches of the season on the bench. The Blues are going after high-profile targets in his role. They would reportedly prefer him to join a team where he could be a regular, while he would begin as a backup with the Nerazzurri.

The Chelsea youth product starred for Ipswich, Huddersfield, and Lorient in recent seasons. He’s the brother of Nathaniel, who played at Napoli. Inter will see it through for Chalobah before sealing the deal for Francesco Acerbi. While that shouldn’t be hard to accomplish, the brass would like to onboard a younger player. The veteran is at the bottom of their shortlist, but he’s the easiest to acquire. As per Radiosei, his agent will meet Lazio today to deepen the talks. The Biancocelesti demand €500/800k for the initial loan.

La Beneamata has tracked Manuel Akanji at length throughout the summer. Borussia Dortmund are negotiating his departure. Although, the two clubs are €10M apart in the defender’s future valuation. There might not be enough time left to close the gap.

Our Take on Inter Tracking Chalobah

Their crosstown rivals struck oil by signing a young Chelsea center-back in recent years. The deal could have legs if they somehow managed to insert a relatively low option to buy. But it’s probably a stretch. A simple loan would favor just the Premier League outfit.
