If Liverpool sign Callum Hudson-Odoi, Leeds may gain a £20m transfer boost

Liverpool are reportedly keeping tabs on Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi as he looks set to enter the final 12 months of his contract at Stamford Bridge – and a move to Anfield could benefit Leeds United.

SportBild claimed that Borussia Dortmund have joined Bayern Munich in targeting the 18-year-old wonderkid. But they also reported that Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool retain an interest in the England winger.

Bayern Munich met Chelsea’s £35million valuation of Hudson-Odoi in January, but Chelsea rejected a move despite Hudson-Odoi’s wishes. They opted to keep the player despite his asking price being met.

The summer becomes an intriguing one. Hudson-Odoi’s contract expires at the end of the 2019-20 campaign and that leaves Chelsea with two transfer windows to sell him in. Indeed, they are unable to buy new players.

That is because they have been banned from signing new talent in the next two windows. They will be desperate to keep Hudson-Odoi, but Liverpool may table an offer the Blues simply cannot reject.

 

If such an occurrence happens and Hudson-Odoi moves north to Merseyside, Leeds may find it a lot easier to sign Harry Wilson after being linked with the Derby County loanee earlier this month.

The Sun on Sunday (3/3; page 61) claimed Leeds were interested in landing the Wales international, if they gain promotion to the Premier League. Goal value Wilson at a whopping £20million.

Liverpool already boast the likes of Sadio Mane, Xherdan Shaqiri, Mo Salah, Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as options out wide. Ryan Kent is on loan at Rangers and could return to Anfield.

Adding Hudson-Odoi into that mix and Wilson is left with no chance but to leave. If Leeds meet Liverpool’s asking price for the 22-year-old, then the signing of Hudson-Odoi may make a move easier to manoeuvre.
