Despite his talent, Hudson-Odoi has failed to earn a regular spot in Chelsea’s squad, either under Frank Lampard or Thomas Tuchel.

The Bundesliga side saw several offers for the academy graduate rejected by Chelsea.

However, The Blues ultimately handed the promising winger a vastly improved new contract worth around £120,000-a-week to make him stay.

But the stats even shows worse for Hudson-Odoi since then. He started only 10 league fixtures during last season. Following the arrival of Tuchel, Hudson-Odoi was used as wing-back role, his unfamiliar one.

The three-cap England international has recently been linked with a potential part-exchange move to Bayern this summer.

One of the reason is the rumour that Chelsea bid to lure Kingsley Coman to the Premier League. The trusted site, The Athletic are reporting that Hudson-Odoi remains part of the Blues’ plans.

Hudson-Odoi started Tuchel’s reign in favour and made 13 appearances during the German’s opening two months in charge, though fell out of favour during the run-in and was an unused substitute during the Champions League final.

The winger returned for pre-season on July 9 in what will be his first full summer of preparation since breaking into the senior side.

Report claims that, now he is in ‘the best physical shape’ since his breakthrough as he bids to secure a regular role and overcome a frustrating period.
