Callum Hudson-Odoi is reportedly one step closer to leaving with Borussia Dortmund once again ready to take the young star on loan.

According to , the 21-year-old’s representatives are in talks with Dortmund over a loan deal, after it was recently reported that the player had informed of his desire to leave Stamford Bridge.

The winger wants regular first-team football, something he has scarcely seen at Chelsea, making just 11 Premier League starts last season and far behind fellow forwards Raheem Sterling, and Christian Pulisic in the pecking order.

He was also left out of the squad completely for the club’s opening game of the season on Saturday, when the Blues narrowly defeated Everton at Goodison Park.

Four clubs are said to be interested in acquiring Hudson-Odoi, namely Dortmund, Juventus, Southampton and Leicester, and while the Bundesliga side are the first to have been contacted by his representatives, it is also reported that they will talk to all interested parties before a decision is made.

Dortmund came close to signing the England international last summer on loan but the proposal was rejected and before that he was also the subject of multiple bids from Bayern Munich.

While he has suffered with injuries, Hudson-Odoi is a very highly-rated player having scored 16 goals and made 22 assists in his short career, winning the Champions League, Europa League and Club World Cup, and was also named Chelsea Young Player of the Year in 2019.

While Chelsea are only interested in letting him leave on loan, Hudson-Odoi only had two years left on his contract and may hope that a successful loan will lead to a permanent move next summer when his price tag will be lower.

He is one of several players expected to leave Stamford Bridge before the transfer window closes on September 1, with Marcos Alonso looking very likely to finally join Barcelona, while Timo Werner is set to re-join RB Leipzig on a permanent deal.
