Chelsea reportedly interfered with Callum Hudson-Odoi’s potential loan transfer to Borussia Dortmund.
It turned out that 20-year-old boy agreed to personal terms with the Bundesliga team on a full season loan away from Stamford Bridge.
While Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel believes that the London-born star should stay and fight for a spot on the all-star team, the former Dortmund manager appreciates the fact that the competition for spots in the main team is very tough and there will be few opportunities. , and far from being for a young man.
The Blues were defeated in pursuit of the 22-year-old defender. with his current employers demanding an additional 15 million euros despite having already negotiated a fee with West Londoners.
It was recently reported that negotiations between the two sides stalled as Chelsea refuse to force overpay for the French national team, despite the fact that European champions are looking to sign Kounde to strengthen their defenses to fight on all fronts this season.

If Dortmund intensifies its interest in sending a Cobham alumnus on loan, Tuchel will have the final say on whether Hudson-Odoi really exceeds the requirements, or if Chelsea may need his services at some points during the season, with the European champions. compete in all directions.
What Tuchel said about Hudson-Odoi before the Liverpool match
“It’s hard to argue with the opinion that he needs regular playing time to improve his personal level. At the same time, it’s not just about letting the players go.
“Today we are missing only Christian Pulisic and Kurt Zuma (who has since moved to West Ham), for example, so there are only 17 regular players from last season. So, if we want to participate in all competitions, it’s also numbers.
“On a team, you need a 20-21 player squad to compensate for injuries, compensate for yellow cards or whatever. I have a feeling that Callum has decided to fight for his place here.
“He fights for offensive positions, and of course, if you do the math, you get a lot of guys in three offensive positions. So this is a huge problem for him, but the door is always open to sneak in and get through, and it can happen at any time to the attackers. There is no loan at the moment. “
