Chelsea are prepared to let Callum Hudson-Odoi leave this summer.
Borussia Dortmund have emerged as a potential club willing to sign him, having been heavily linked with fellow Bundesliga side Bayern Munich at one stage.
They made several bids to sign the winger, who was ken on the move, but he was persuaded to stay at the club when Frank Lampard was appointed, signing a new deal worth £120,000 a week.
When Thomas Tuchel arrived at the club, initially he took a shine to him, but then became disappointed by his lack of tactical discipline, and he struggled for regular game time under the German towards the back end of the season.
Hi lack of regular football has cost Hudson-Odoi his place in the England set-up, and now he is keen on a new challenge elsewhere. Dortmund view the 20-year old as a natural replacement for Jadon Sancho who has been told he can leave the German club this month.
