  • Chelsea have told Trevoh Chalobah and Kepa Arrizabalaga to stay this season
  • Chalobah had aroused interest from a number of European clubs this summer
  • The defender made his first start for the Blues in their 2-1 win over Leicester
  • Arrizabalaga appeared to be ready to join Napoli after long discussions

Chelsea have informed both Trevoh Chaloboh and Kepa Arrizabalaga that they want them to stay at Stamford Bridge this season.

Chalobah has been the subject of interest from a number of European teams this summer, including Inter Milan, AC Milan, Roma and RB Leipzig. While Premier League rival Tottenham also had an eye on the defender.

The 23-year-old started the Blues’ 2-1 win over Leicester City on Saturday after serving as an unused substitute in their first three Premier League games.

The academy graduate played 20 top games for Thomas Tuchel’s side last season, but looks set to drop down the pecking order in West London after the imminent arrival of Wesley Fofana.

However, Chelsea’s hierarchy has informed Chalobah that he will play a part this season and has told him to stay and fight for his place on the side, according to the Evening Standard.

Meanwhile, the Blues have also told goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga that he will be a valued member of Tuchel’s roster this campaign.

The shot-stopper joined Chelsea in 2018 for a world record fee of £71.6 million, but failed to make the desired impact at Stamford Bridge.

The 27-year-old has become the second-choice goalkeeper on the King’s Road since Edouard Mendy’s move from Rennes in 2020.

Italy’s Napoli had set their sights on a rental contract for Arrizabalaga this season, but that appears to be a stumbling block.

The Blues have told the Spaniard to stay in West London this season and try to oust Mendy as Tuchel’s number 1.
