Two Teams approach Chelsea for Callum Hudson-Odoi

According to the media outlet Football London, Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge; Leicester City and Borussia Dortmund are the interested parties.

BVB Buzz writer, Brain Szlenk Straub believes the Bundesliga giants are exploring their options on the right-wing.

Having played three games in the Bundesliga so far, Borussia Dortmund have shown a level of inconsistency that has highlighted the need for new signings. The newest name linked to the club is Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.

With 57 Premier League appearances under his belt, Hudson-Odoi is an excellent option for a side looking to bolster their midfield. During that period, the 20-year-old has scored 3 goals, and he’s had 9 assists.

Chelsea have an array of talent in the wide areas, including Marcos Alonso, Ben Chilwell, and Mason Mount. German international, Kai Havertz, had an excellent performance against Liverpool on Saturday. Those players are all ahead of Hudson-Odoi in head coach Thomas Tuchel’s plans.

Despite playing in the UEFA Super Cup, Hudson-Odoi has not played in the Premier League this season. He was an unused substitute in Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Anfield.

In 2019, Hudson-Odoi signed a contract extension with the club until 2024. Transfermarkt.com values Hudson-Odoi at £29m. The website gives the England international a 54 percent chance of moving to Borussia Dortmund.

Why Chelsea should reject a bid for Hudson-Odoi

Tuchel has done an excellent job since arriving at Stamford Bridge. He led The Blues to their second Champions League title last season, and they’re one of the favourites to win the Premier League this season.

Like their rivals, Chelsea will need a sizeable squad to remain competitive in domestic and European competitions. COVID-19 poses a risk to every squad on the planet, so it’s important to have a strong bench.

Tuchel has cleared the decks at Stamford Bridge, releasing some players, and sending younger squad members on loan. Billy Gilmour will spend this season with newly-promoted Norwich City.

Another Chelsea high-profile academy player Tammy Abraham, left the club recently, to join AS Roma, in Serie A. The club website recently announced the departure of Tiemoue Bakayoko to AC Milan on loan.
