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.
Callum Hudson-Odoi’s representatives remain in talks with Chelsea officials about allowing him to leave on a straight loan to Borussia Dortmund.

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.
