£70M winger informs Chelsea pair Boehly and Tuchel he wants to complete summer move
Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi has told the club he wants to leave, sources have told Football Insider.
The English winger, 21, was considered one of the hottest properties in world football just a few years ago – and a player that was tipped to become one of the very best in the world
His performances even attracted the interested of German Champions Bayern Munich – who were ready to make him one of their highest-paid players at the age of just 18, but he signed a new contract at Stamford Bridge.
Many fans then believed he would go on and develop into that world class star that many believed he would become – but he has not reached nowhere near those heights yet – and struggles to even get in the starting eleven.
And after the arrival of Raheem Sterling in the summer window and more talk that there could be another striker signed – he has fallen further down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge – and is not happy
Hudson-Odoi is frustrated by his lack of game time under Thomas Tuchel and wants to join a team where he can be a regular starter – according to Football Insider.
The news will alert a host of clubs who are interested in a possible deal – but Chelsea are hoping to convince him to stay at Stamford Bridge
It has been seen in recent seasons that the best young English talents in the game leave the Premier League and make a name for themselves abroad – so this would be a great move for Odoi – if he does leave the club
It is no great news for the club to see – but at the end of the day we can totally understand his reasons for wanting to depart Stamford Bridge
