Borussia Dortmund are interested in signing Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi on loan.
But the Blues are currently refusing to let the England international head through the exit door.
The winger, a thrice-capped Three Lions starlet, has struggled to nail down a starting spot under Thomas Tuchel.
However he previously impressed under predecessor Frank Lampard.
It had appeared that the 20-year-old was set to remain at Stamford Bridge across the 2021-22 campaign.
But now a spate of new suitors have emerged for his signature as the transfer window deadline looms.
Though no formal approach has been made, Borussia Dortmund are the latest major European side to show an overt interest in bringing Hudson-Odoi into their ranks.
Marco Rose’s side are thought to be at the top of a list of potential suitors vying to turn the winger’s head as the final few days of the summer window tick down.
But any bid is likely to be met with fierce resistance, with Tuchel of the opinion that he should stay in west London with the Blues.
