Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi now reportedly had his heart set on a move to Fulham this summer.
A report from the Daily Express has shared more details on the 22-year-old’s future.
Fulham confirmed their first new signing of the summer last night as they got their incoming business underway.
Wolves striker Raul Jimenez has arrived at the club in a deal worth £5m.
The 32-year-old didn’t score a single Premier League goal in 15 appearances last season.
However, Marco Silva has a very good track record with his signing over the past two campaigns.
Jimenez has a very similar profile to Aleksandar Mitrovic who appears to be on his way to Saudi Arabia.
Fulham are continuing to try and improve their attack before the season begins.
Callum Hudson-Odoi has been a target for some time and apparently has his heart set on a move to Fulham.
The England international has had a tough time in recent seasons.
A fresh start at Craven Cottage might be just what he needs to get his career back on track.
Hudson-Odoi has heart set on Fulham move
The report from the Daily Express that Chelsea will only allow Hudson-Odoi to leave if they receive their full £10m valuation.
Fulham haven’t reached that asking price yet but want to sign him but face competition from Lazio.
Hudson-Odoi, however, wants to remain in the Premier League making the Whites his preferred destination right now.
Marco Silva will be pleased with how his wingers have performed already this summer.
Both Harry Wilson and Bobby Decordova-Reid scored against Brentford during their friendly on Sunday.
Willan then came off the bench for his first appearance his re-signing for the club and nearly added his name to the score sheet too.
If Hudson-Odoi has his heart set on a move to Fulham, then a move should eventually happen this summer.
Chelsea want to move him on as he doesn’t have a future at the club and the 22-year-old would be a very good option for Silva.
His trickery and direct running make him seriously difficult to stop on his day.
Silva has been brilliant at improving young players since joining Fulham.
Hudson-Odoi arguably has the highest ceiling yet and if he reaches that level under the Portuguese, then it could be a game-changing signing.
