Chelsea put contract talks on hold for £43m-rated English forward

Chelsea have reportedly put contract talks with Callum Hudson-Odoi on hold until the end of the season.

The 18-year-old was strongly linked with a move to Bayern Munich in the January transfer window, but Chelsea ultimately kept hold of the attacker, who reportedly handed in a transfer request in order to force a move.

Manchester United, Liverpool and Barcelona have since been linked with a move as Hudson-Odoi prepares to enter the final 12 months of his contract at Stamford Bridge.

The attacker’s stock has risen further following an excellent performance for England in their 5-1 win over Montenegro during the recent international break.

The teenager has not started a single Premier League game for Chelsea this season, though, and it has been suggested that the Blues would accept an offer of £43m this summer.

According to the Daily Mail, no further contract talks between Chelsea and Hudson-Odoi will be held until the end of the campaign as the Blues consider their options.

The Englishman has scored five times and registered four assists in 23 first-team appearances in all competitions since debuting for Chelsea in 2017.
