Blow for Chelsea as striker demand January exit

Callum Hudson-Odoi is unhappy under boss Maurizio Sarri and is angling for the exit door at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are hanging by a thread over hammering out a deal for the winger.

Hudson-Odoi future is up in the air and there are pressing concerns he is keen on leaving Chelsea and finding pastures elsewhere.

The winger lashed his first goal for Chelsea’s senior team on Thursday against POAK in the Europa League.

His impressive display for the Blues has garnered attention from the Chelsea bigwigs, who has slapped a new five-year deal on the table for him.

But the 22-year-old had his back at them and shoved away the new deal to pin him down at the club.

It is understood Hudson-Odoi is eager to make a switch to a  new club because he has seen fewer games under Sarri since he took the helm at the club in the summer.

Backstepping is very likely to be on Chelsea cards. Sweetening the kitty could bait the winger into staying long-term.

Furthermore, if the Blues can pull the deal through, they could push up decisions to find a team where he can enjoy regular football.

Interests in the youngster is already flooding in from the Bundesliga. Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich are reportedly in the running for his services.
