Former Blues midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah is now with Fulham.

Trevoh told the club’s website: “I spoke to my brother straight after the Palace game and he was so happy for me because he’s been here as well, he’s played at Stamford Bridge, he’s won the Premier League, so he knows how it feels. Even to this day he’s always giving me advice and we keep close to each other, we speak every day.

“When I went on loan to Lorient, it was my first time living abroad, and it was the same for him when he went on loan to Napoli, so he helped me and told me what was needed, how to adapt with a different language and everything.

“When we were both here and I would go across to take part in training with the first team, it would be nice to train with him.

“Now one day we could play on the same pitch in the Premier League, that would be another dream. If I can’t play with him, then against him would be good, so hopefully that dream can come true too.”
