Premier League leaders have emerged as the surprise favourites to sign young Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi according to the publication from the TalkSport.
The player’s future at Chelsea is in doubt with just over a year left on his contract at the club and several European clubs are interested in him.
Major European sides like Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Liverpool have all been credited with an interest in the young England international.
Callum Hudson-Odoi has seen his status soar in recent weeks after he made his debut for the Three Lions of England.
The 18-year-old impressed a great deal for his country in the opening Euro 2020 qualifying games against Czech Republic and Montenegro.
He was called up to the England team from the u21 squad after several players withdrew from the team as a result of an injury.
Hudson-Odoi made his first Premier League start against Brighton and Hove Albion last week Wednesday and impressed as he provided an assist for one of the goals for Chelsea who won the game 3-0.
He could have left Chelsea during the winter transfer window amidst strong transfer interest from German champions Bayern Munich but the Blues rejected several bids from the Bavarian giants and also turned down the transfer request from him.
