Callum Hudson Odoi will be allowed to leave Chelsea, but only on a loan this summer. Co-owner Todd Boehly has personally held talks with the player regarding this. The subject of the talks was mainly to persuade the player to not exit Chelsea on a permanent exit. Newcastle, Borussia Dortmund, Leicester, and Southampton are ready to bring the player on a loan. As of yet, no options for a permanent buy clause is available in the contract.
Hudson Odoi joined Chelsea in 2007 at the age of seven. Hudson Odoi made his Chelsea debut in 2018 in a FA Cup match against Newcastle. His Premier League debut was in 2017 when he came on as a substitute in a home match against Bournemouth. Hudson Odoi signed a professional contract in the 2018-19 season under Maurizio Sarri. In his 126 outings for Chelsea, Hudson Odoi has had 16 appearances and 22 assists. However, the player is still waiting for his first senior minutes of the 2022-23 season.
Hudson Odoi did not feature for Chelsea in their 1-0 match over Everton. Moreover, he also didn’t play in Chelsea’s development squad against Fulham. According to the Evening Standard, this was because the player wants to force a move away from Chelsea. Apart from the above-mentioned clubs, Premier League rivals Arsenals are also interested in signing the player. However, it seems unlikely that they will sell to a direct Premier League rival.
Christian Pulisic looking to leave Chelsea too
Apart from Hudson Odoi, Christian Pulisic has also expressed their desire to exit the club. Manchester United have expressed their desire to sign Christian Pulisic on a loan move. Chelsea knows that the player is frustrated with his available game time. He is looking to leave the club temporarily to get more game time which will ensure that he has a spot in the USMNT which will travel to Qatar in November. Thomas Tuchel is open to the exit of the player this season. Tuchel also has let forwards Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku leave the club this season.
