Liverpool have reportedly started discussions with the agent of ‘frustrated’ Chelsea forward Callum Hudson-Odoi.
The Blues’ academy product, who made his senior international bow for England last week, is said to be hoping for a move away from Stamford Bridge in the summer.
Hudson-Odoi is rumoured to be on the radar of a number of elite clubs, including Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester United, despite yet making a single Premier League start for Chelsea.
A transfer request was handed in by the youngster in January amid three offers from Bayern, the most recent in the region of £35m, and the 18-year-old’s stance is said to have remained the same since then.
German outlet Kicker indicates that Liverpool may now be at the front of the queue to sign Hudson-Odoi, having already made contact with the youngster’s representatives.
Chelsea are believed to have held off contract talks with the Englishman, who has has just one full season left to run on his existing deal.
