Liverpool interested in completing shock move for £40m-rated Chelsea attacker

Liverpool are still interested in signing Callum Hudson-Odoi, reports say.

The Chelsea forward is one of the most sought after youngsters in England, with Bayern Munich failing in a bid to sign him in January.

Chelsea turned down four transfer offers from Hudson-Odoi amid claims Liverpool were also tracking the Englishman.

Borussia Dortmund have now entered the race for Hudson-Odoi, but SportBild claim Liverpool have not given up on poaching the 18-year-old, who was called up to the England senior team this week for the first time.

Liverpool were monitoring Hudson-Odoi before Bayern firmed up their interest, but decided against entering into a bidding war with the Germans during the winter window.

Jurgen Klopp did not feel Hudson-Odoi would be an instant regular with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino nailed on starters on Merseyside.

Hudson-Odoi handed in a transfer request when Bayern made their move for him and has spoken with international team-mate Jadon Sancho about playing in Germany.

Sancho forced his way out of Manchester City to join Dortmund last summer and has emerged as one of the best performers in the Bundesliga.

Liverpool have recent form of luring Chelsea’s young stars to the club, with Dominic Solanke swapping Stamford Bridge for Anfield.

Solanke was sold to Bournemouth in January for a significant profit after failing to make the grade at Liverpool.

Despite not getting the playing time he was reportedly promised by Chelsea, Hudson-Odoi has continued to impress with three goals in his last six appearances.

Chelsea want Hudson-Odoi to sign a new long-term deal, but the left winger is expected to push for a move away this summer.
