Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino could try to force West Ham United target out of Stamford Bridge in January.

West Ham have been linked with the Chelsea player on numerous occasions before, and now Mauricio Pochettino could leave the door wide open for Hammers boss David Moyes to sign him.

Trevoh Chalobah was one player West Ham wanted to sign in the summer, but Moyes brought Konstantinos Mavropanos to the London Stadium instead.

The Scot could still do with the addition of another central defender though, with Angelo Ogbonna most likely in his final season with the club and Kurt Zouma always seeming to struggle with some kind of injury.

And with that in mind, the 24-year-old Chelsea ace could be perfect for us…

Mauricio Pochettino wants to sell Chelsea star

According to a report from Football London, Poch is ready to brutally axe Chalobah in the January transfer window.

If this report is indeed true, Moyes should not hesitate to bring him to the London Stadium.

Chalobah is an exceptional defender, and his versatility would make him the ideal January signing for the Hammers.

Described as an ‘incredible’ defender by Football.London, Chalobah is quick along the ground, strong in the air and vitally for David Moyes, he has experience of playing Premier League football.

He is highly experienced in playing at the very highest level of the game for a sustained period of time, and would provide great cover for David Moyes all across the backline.

If Mauricio Pochettino does try to force Chalobah out of Chelsea, West Ham absolutely must sign him as far as I’m concerned.
