Chelsea defender, Trevoh Chalobah is open to the idea of representing his country of birth Sierra Leone in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations.

Born in Freetown, Sierra Leone, the 22-year-old moved to England at the age of seven and grew up in Gipsy Hill in the London Borough of Lambeth.

In a recent interview as reported by Goal, Chalobah declared that he is a Sierra Leone citizen and that he is happy with the country’s qualification for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

“Obviously yes that is my country (Sierra Leone) and I am really pleased, they have done well to qualify but my focus right now is on the club” he said

Chalobah is yet to play for the West African country, even though he has played across all youth levels for England.

He joined Chelsea at the age of eight and he spent the last three seasons on loan at Ipswich Town, Huddersfield Town and Lorient before he earned his spot in Thomas Tuchel’s team.
