‘Can’t let go anywhere’: Some Chelsea fans react as German club want 20-year-old Blues player
Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi is being linked with German and Champions League club Borussia Dortmund – but some Blues fans have responded on Twitter by claiming he’s not for sale.
According to TEAMtalk, Bundesliga side Dortmund are keeping tabs on three Chelsea players.
It is understood that Dortmund have contacted the Blues asking to be kept informed about the availability of Hudson-Odoi. Likewise, they have been asking about his teammates Christian Pulisic and Timo Werner.
Hudson-Odoi, who earns £120,000-a-week, is a huge talent to come out of the Chelsea academy.
The 20-year-old is an exciting attacker with pace and trickery, albeit club manager Thomas Tuchel has relied upon him for cover at wing-back in certain games. Tuchel has admitted, though, he knows he’s better further up the pitch.
He’s currently enjoined a decent mini run in the team, scoring in the previous Premier League win against Norwich City.
Chelsea fans warn Borussia Dortmund off Hudson-Odoi
A selection of Blues supporters on social media insist that Hudson-Odoi needs to stay at Stamford Bridge.
The English speedster is certainly not a nailed-on starter under Tuchel, but is a boyhood Chelsea fan that is very popular with the club’s fanbase.
In fairness, Dortmund have shown a knack for helping to develop young talents in recent years. For instance, England internationals Jadon Sancho and Jude Bellingham fall into that category.
However, Hudson-Odoi has played 106 first-team games for Chelsea and plenty of fans feel he’s on the right path where he is.
Here are some reacting to the Dortmund speculation:
He needs things to click quickly
For Hudson-Odoi, he’ll be desperate to shake off the tag that he’s a young player.
He’s clocked up 100-plus matches now for the Blues, but it still feels like he’s living off potential and glimpses of magic.
This 2021/22 season is pivotal for him to show what he can offer moving forward.
