Ghana target, Callum Hudson-Odoi is set for a move to Germany after opting to join Bayer Leverkusen on loan.
According to 90 min, the winger has been given permission to seek a move after Thomas Tuchel informed him that he was happy for him to leave.
Hudson-Odoi is one of a number of Chelsea forwards who Tuchel has decided do not currently form a part of his plans, and the club’s hierarchy have decided to sanction a temporary move.
The 22-year-old has two years left on his current deal, and the size of his contract has meant a permanent deal would be difficult at this stage.
A host of clubs from the Premier League and abroad have contacted with Chelsea about a deal, but the Blues have left the ultimate decision to the player and he has opted to finally move to Germany.
Back in 2019, Bayern Munich made a number of bids to land Hudson-Odoi and the player even put in a transfer request. But he was persuaded to stay by then boss Frank Lampard and eventually signed a new long-term highly lucrative contract.
