Report: Chelsea have not put 20-year-old up for sale despite reports linking him with a move

Chelsea duo Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi are not being viewed as replacements for Erling Haaland by Borussia Dortmund.

That’s according to The Athletic, who claim that neither of the Blues pairing are part of Dortmund’s transfer plans this summer.

A recent report from Sky Sports Germany stated that Hudson-Odoi and Abraham had been offered to BVB in exchange for a Haaland, a proposal they swiftly rejected.

Now, The Athletic says the former was never involved in this potential deal.

Hudson-Odoi has been linked with a move to the Bundesliga for some time, with Bayern Munich his long-standing admirers.

Germany’s footballing giant had a loan bid rejected by Chelsea for the 20-year-old last October.

Bayern are seemingly still fans of the Blues academy product but have yet to make another formal bid for him.

The exciting winger is still trying to squeeze his way into Thomas Tuchel’s team following an indifferent season.

He started 19 games across all competitions in 2020/21, the last of which arriving in April.

Tuchel did select him from the off in eight of his 19 Premier League games in charge, compared to three in the same number of matches under Frank Lampard.

This campaign could be a career cross-roads moment for Hudson-Odoi, especially if he decides to remain at Chelsea for another term.

Fail to cement a regular spot in the side and he may have no choice but to look for options elsewhere.

Land a leading role in Tuchel’s set-up and his future might begin to shine brighter than ever before.
