Chelsea Reject Fulham Offer for Callum Hudson-Odoi
Chelsea have rejected an offer from rivals Fulham to sign Callum Hudson-Odoi. The winger is deemed surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge, and has just one year left on his deal at the club.
Hudson-Odoi made his debut for the club in 2019 and was heavily linked with a big money move to Bayern Munich, before signing a long-term contract with the Blues. The winger was once viewed as the next star of English football but he’s failed to progress his career in recent years.
Hudson-Odoi’s Loan Move to Bayer Leverkusen
Hudson-Odoi spent last season on loan at Bayern Leverkusen, where he was looking to revive his career. But the winger made just 13 appearances for the German club, registering one assist.
With a year left on his deal, Hudson-Odoi is keen to leave the club as he wants regular first team football. Chelsea are similarly keen to part ways as they continue to recoup cash this summer, following a £600m outlay over the last two windows.
Fulham’s Offer Rejected
But the Blues have turned down an initial bid from Fulham for Hudson-Odoi as they do not deem the fee to be high enough. Fulham are expected to return with a second bid for the winger and hope that a move down the road will appeal to the playmaker.
