Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has set his sights on remaining focused with Chelsea despite rumours flying around that his name has been attached to a potential player swap for Harry Kane or Jadon Sancho.

Chelsea have what is said to be a busy and expensive transfer window ahead of them this summer with many transfer targets in sight.

However, With the club’s top goal scorer notching just seven goals, all from penalty, it is safe to assume that the Blues will pursue a high end centre-forward.

Reports suggest names such as Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku are viewed as potential targets for Chelsea.

Also the likes of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho have also been thrown around as a talent Chelsea may look to add to their squad ahead of the next campaign.

In the case of Kane and Sancho, a player swap idea has been tossed around that could include players like Kepa Arrizabalaga, Marcos Alonso, Tammy Abraham, and Callum Hudson-Odoi.

While a player swap is relatively uncommon in the sport, Chelsea have the youth and talent to make a substantial offer to any club willing to listen.

However, one in particular is set on competing for his place in the Chelsea first team.

Hudson-Odoi, despite being connected to a player swap for Kane or Sancho, wants to remain in London with the Blues and intends to prove himself to manager Thomas Tuchel and the board, according to reports from Goal.

The issue lies in the fact that Hudson-Odoi has done little since Tuchel has taken the helm to prove he deserves a spot in the squad.

Despite his ethereal talent and potential, Hudson-Odoi has played just 280 minutes of football in Premier League action after the incident in which Tuchel substituted Hudson-Odoi in against Southampton only to remove him 31 minutes later.

Tuchel cited his lack of effort as the reasoning for the yank.
