Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi could stay at Stamford Bridge this season after a summer-long period of speculation over his future.
At just 22 years old, Hudson-Odoi has plenty of time to resurrect a career that has gone badly downhill over the past two years. Hudson-Odoi had been the subject of interest from Bayern Munich back in 2019 after the Bavarians submitted a bid worth over $40m for his services in the January transfer window when the winger was just 18.

Despite not being given a squad number by the club earlier this month, the recurring hamstring to club captain Reece James could see the former England winger be reintegrated back into the Chelsea set up by new head coach Mauricio Pochettino.
West London rivals Fulham had shown an interest in picking up Hudson-Odoi on a free transfer this summer but according to The Sunday Times’ Tom Roddy, the Cottagers have pulled out of the race to sign the winger who can also be deployed as a wing-back in the absence of James.
