Jose Mourinho’s Roma have joined Bayern Munich in the race to sign Chelsea star Trevoh Chalobah in the January transfer window, according to reports.

The 24-year-old is yet to play for the Blues this season, falling down the pecking order under Mauricio Pochettino and is also dealing with a hamstring injury.

Thiago Silva has remained ahead of Chalobah in Pochettino’s plans, while Levi Colwill and Axel Disasi have also become first team regulars.

That means that Chalobah is likely to leave Chelsea in the next transfer window with Bayern Munich keen to bring in the Blues academy graduate.

But the German champions now face competition from Italian side Roma, who are also considering a January bid for Chalobah, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Roma have already done business with Chelsea this season, with Mourinho signing Romelu Lukaku on a season-long loan in the summer.

Lukaku has made a strong start to life in Rome, registering seven goals across his opening eight games.

Chelsea have already told Roma how much they must pay to turn Lukaku’s loan into a permanent transfer at the end of the season.

Roma are 10th in Serie A after their opening eight games of the 2023-24 campaign, winning three matches.

During Mourinho’s time at the club, he has led Roma to glory in the Europa Conference League, while last season they were Europa League runners-up.
