Enquiry made: Premier League club sound out permanent signing of Chelsea wideman

Posted by

An unnamed Premier League club have reportedly tabled an enquiry to Chelsea regarding the permanent signing of Callum Hudson-Odoi, according to Sky Sports News.

Sky Sports offered an update on the future of the 20-year-old via Transfer Centre (3.34pm), this comes as Hudson-Odoi is currently in talks with Borussia Dortmund over a loan switch.

The England international has been used sparingly since Thomas Tuchel arrived at Chelsea, being utilised in a new wing-back role at times, as Sky report that the Blues boss isn’t keen on granting an exit for Hudson-Odoi, though the decision ultimately lies with the club.

Hudson-Odoi has only made one appearance so far this season, starting at wing-back and playing 82 minutes in the European Super Cup tie against Villarreal.

Sky Sports claim that the promising wideman is open to a move to Dortmund, though he reportedly sees his long-term at Stamford Bridge, so perhaps a permanent exit to the interested Premier League club wouldn’t appeal to him anyway.

Hudson-Odoi debuted for Chelsea in the 17/18 season before establishing himself as an important first-team player in the following campaign.

The talent still managed to contribute three goals and a handy six assists for the Blues in a 19/20 campaign that was hindered by injuries and saw him switch between a starting and substitute role.

Hudson-Odoi came up with five goals and five assists in 37 appearances across all competitions for Chelsea last season, but his dwindling role since Tuchel arrived points to a loan exit being something that the club should seriously consider, as it’s a clearer path to regular action for the ace.
