Nathaniel Chalobah Set To Have Contract Talks With Chelsea Next Week

Nathaniel Chalobah is due to hold contract talks with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte in the next fortnight.

360Nobs understands Watford, Southampton and Swansea are all interested in signing the 22-year old, who is out of contract in 12 months’ time.

Nathaniel Chalobah made 15 appearances for Chelsea last season and played a key role in Aidy Boothroyd’s England reaching the semi-finals in the U21 Championship this summer.

Conte is known to be a big fan of the player, however, Chalobah’s chances of playing a key role at Stamford Bridge next season could be further reduced if Chelsea manage to land Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco.

The youngster has just one year left on his current £45,000-a-week contract, and wants more regular first team football. He got a title winner’s medal last season but made only 10 Premier League appearances, and just one start

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has contacted the 22-year-old and promised him a wage rise to around £65,000-a-week, and more first-team action, if he commits to a new five-year deal.
