Chelsea continued their pre-season preparations with a 4-3 win over Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday. 

The Blues beat Wrexham 5-0 in their first friendly of the summer, and followed that victory up with another success against the Seagulls.

Christopher Nkunku, Mykhaylo Mudryk, Conor Gallagher and Nicolas Jackson were all on the scoresheet in the USA, while manager Mauricio Pochettino also gave opportunities to some young players, including Bashir Humphreys and Lewis Hall.

Now, though, it appears that one of Chelsea’s attackers could be on his way to another Premier League club.

As per Fabrizio Romano, winger Callum Hudson-Odoi could move to London rivals Fulham following the news that Cottagers manager Marco Silva is set to stay with the club.

The Portuguese had been heavily linked with the vacant managerial role at Saudi Arabian club Al Ahli, but the former Watford manager is now set to stay put in West London.

Hudson-Odoi looks likely to leave Chelsea this summer

Romano claims that Fulham have been interested in Hudson-Odoi for some time now and may make a move to sign him now that Silva’s future looks to have been resolved.

Hudson-Odoi, 22, is a product of the youth academy at Chelsea but has struggled for first team opportunities over the past few seasons and was sent to German club Bayer Leverkusen on loan last summer.

During his time in Germany, the Englishman scored just one goal and provided only one assist in 21 matches across all competitions.

He now faces an uncertain future, although Romano also claims that the player is in advanced talks over a potential move to Italian side Lazio.

Hudson-Odoi has made a total of 126 appearances for the Blues across all competitions, scoring 16 goals and providing 22 assists.

It is claimed, though, that Chelsea are hopeful of agreeing a deal for the player to leave Stamford Bridge permanently.
