Premier League giants Chelsea have turned down a swap deal proposed by German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.
The proposed swap deal involve Christian Pulisic (Borussia Dortmund) and Callum Hodson-Odoi (Chelsea).

Chelsea are one of the clubs in the running for Borussia Dortmund forward Christian Pulisic who has just 18 months left on his contract with the Signa Iduna Park outfit while young Chelsea winger Callum Hodson-Odoi has been linked with an exit from the club after growing frustrated with a lack of playing time under new Blues manager Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge.

The proposition from Dortmund involves both players moving in the other direction but Chelsea were opposed to the idea.

This was confirmed by journalist Nizaar Kinsella of popular media outlet Goal.
It was also revealed that several European heavyweights are keen on a transfer for exciting Chelsea prospect Callum Hodson-Odoi.

Apart from German Bundesliga table toppers Borussia Dortmund, the trio of Spanish giants Real Madrid, Italian Serie A champions Juventus and German champions Bayern Munich are also interested in the young English winger.

Hodson-Odoi could be the key to the signing of American forward Pulisic for Chelsea.

The Borussia Dortmund player has been the subject of interests from several English top flight clubs including Chelsea.
