Callum Hudson-Odoi prepared to fight for his Chelsea future amid exit talk

Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has no plans of leaving the club amid the recent speculation linking him with Bayern Munich, The Sun reports.

The 20-year-old has struggled to nail down a regular starting role, and he was a regular on the bench for most of the previous campaign.

It was recently reported that the Blues could be willing to include Hudson-Odoi as a makeweight to sign Bayern’s Kingsley Coman.

Bayern are long-term admirers of the Blues graduate, but it appears that the forward has no plans of leaving the European champions this summer.

He has three years left on his current £120,000-a-week deal and is prepared to fight for his place under Thomas Tuchel than move elsewhere.

Sportslens view:

Hudson-Odoi was regarded as one of the best players coming through the youth ranks in 2019 before he suffered a long-term Achilles injury.

He has since watched Mason Mount and Reece James become regular starters while he has been left on the fringes of the first team.

In recent years, the club have signed Christian Pulisic, Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, who can play in the wide attacking positions.

With the fierce competition for places, Hudson-Odoi has been left regularly on the bench. It remains to be seen whether he can turn the corner.

Next season could be make-or-break for him at Chelsea. Another campaign with limited game time could urge him to reconsider his Blues future.
