Chelsea have been reportedly keen on signing Christian Pulisic from Dortmund, and many reports claim that the club will sign the 20-year-old at the end of the season.
Dortmund are unwilling to let go of Pulisic, but could be forced to sell him at the end of the season so as not to lose him for free.
Pulisic’s contract winds up at the end of next season, and he has refused to sign a new deal with the German club.
Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi is in the same situation as Pulisic and he has refused to sign a new contract.
Reports now claim that Dortmund have started talks with Chelsea over Pulisic, but will want Hudson-Odoi in a swap deal.
The 18-year-old has voiced his frustration over a lack of opportunities in the first team and is questioning his long-term future at Stamford Bridge.
Hudson-Odoi has started just two matches under Maurizio Sarri and is keen on regular play time.
The 18-year-old is reportedly stalling on signing a new five-year contract at the club until he receives assurances about getting more game time.
Hudson-Odoi is rated as one of Chelsea’s most exciting talents from the academy and he was the best player at the club during pre-season.
Hudson-Odoi’s contract expires in the summer of 2020 and Chelsea offered him a new contract in the summer but the youngster has stalled on signing the new contract due to concerns over playing time at Chelsea.
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has urged Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi to be patient for more game time amid reports the 18-year-old is growing increasingly frustrated by a lack of regular opportunities.
