BAYERN MUNICH are reportedly set to make a January swoop on Chelsea for Trevoh Chalobah.
The German side already snapped up England captain Harry Kane from Tottenham last month in a £104m move.
Now a fresh report claims that boss Thomas Tuchel wants to raid his old club to bring in a defender from these shores.
Football Insider says that he is a “big admirer” of Trevoh Chalaboh and attempted to sign him during the summer.
A fee was unable to be agreed between the Blues and Bayern for the 24-year-old.
And now he is planning to try again once the window re-opens in the winter.

Man Utd are a strange club… for all his plaudits, what has Ten Hag achieved?
Speculation has been mounting that Chalobah has been deemed surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge by Mauricio Pochettino.
But that appeared to be squashed when the Argentine confirmed that he “will be involved” – at least until January.
Axel Disasi’s arrival at Chelsea and Levi Colwill’s return from his impressive loan at Brighton has added further competition for a spot in defence.
Chalobah has still not played a minute for the Blues this term due to an issue with his hamstring.

The ex-England U21 international is expected to be able to return towards the end of this month.
Chalobah only signed a new contract last year and is tied to the West London outfit until June 2028.
The £50,000-a-week ace made 33 appearances for the club last year, to take his tally to 63 in total since his first-team breakthrough.
