As the summer transfer window unfolds, Chelsea seems to be more interested in selling their academy graduates rather than retaining them for the future.
Latest report according to the Independent, claims that England under-21 midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah is on the verge of joining Watford after Antonio Conte refuse to assure him more game time next season.
Chalobah who still has one year left on his contract is reluctant to sign a new deal and as a result, the Hornets are ready to test the Blues resolve with £5miliion offer for his signature.
Having gone through the ranks of Chelsea’s youth system, the 22-years-old has failed to cement a place in the Blues starting line-up.
His best season with Chelsea senior team came last season, when he featured 15 times in all competitions.
Since he graduated to Chelsea first team in 2010, the England star has spent most of time away from Stamford Bridge on loan to Watford, Nothingham Forest, Middlesbrough, Burnley, Reading and Napoli.
His fellow under-21 team mates in Dominic Solanke and Nathan Ake have all taking a bold step to exit Chelsea this summer for a first team football.
The imminent arrival of Monaco defensive midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko to Stamford Bridge means Chalobah is unlikely to have more game time compared to last season.
