It looks set to be another summer of Jadon Sancho transfer rumours, with Chelsea reportedly interested in the Borussia Dortmund and England star.
Sancho has long been linked with a move away from the Bundesliga and a return to the Premier League, with Manchester United also keen, according to reports.
Goal stated earlier this month that Dortmund have lowered their asking price for the 21-year-old to £78million, with the England international allowed to explore his options “under certain conditions”.
The Blues have been heavily linked with Sancho and Dortmund’s reported interest in Callum Hudson-Odoi could fall into Chelsea’s favour in terms of negotiating a deal.
According to Eurosport, the Black and Yellow are interested in Hudson-Odoi, as well as Jonathan Ikone and Raphinha.
The English winger has been limited to regular game time under Frank Lampard and now Thomas Tuchel and could be sold this summer, with plenty of potential suitors.
The report states that the valuation of Hudson-Odoi is unclear at the moment, but he could be used as a bargaining chip in any negotiations between Chelsea and Dortmund for Sancho.
However, Goal are also reporting that the 20-year-old is keen to stay at the west London club and fight for his place under Tuchel.
But this could be something that changes as the summer transfer window progressed, especially if Chelsea did pursue a deal for Sancho – where Hudson-Odoi would likely fall even further down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.
Hudson-Odoi is valued between €50-70m (£43-60m) on CIES Football Observatory, which means, theoretically, he could take out a hefty chunk of any fee paid to Dortmund for Sancho.
