Fulham agreed personal terms with Ghanaian Chelsea winger
The blues attacker pushes for Chelsea exit after agreeing terms with Fulham
The 22-year-old has been training with the Under-21s while his future at Stamford Bridge remains uncertain.
Callum Hudson-Odoi is keen to leave Chelsea as soon as possible having been stuck training with the Under-21s for the last three weeks.
The 22-year-old has agreed personal terms with Fulham and has given them the green light to complete a move this summer.
Chelsea have, however been trying to drive up the price and invited Lazio into the race to provide competition in the race. Maurizio Sarri is pushing Lazio’s interest after giving Hudson-Odoi his debut at Chelsea.
Lazio are yet to contact Hudson-Odoi directly as they weigh up a potential loan move that would include an obligation to buy.
Hudson-Odoi is on well over £120,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge with one year left on his deal, complicating talks with interested parties.

Ghanaian winger was initially keen to join Chelsea’s Under-21s to maintain his fitness as negotiations continue despite Romelu Lukaku, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Hakim Ziyech having trained alone at Cobham.
However, he is seeking a speedy resolution with Fulham, especially after Marco Silva’s future as the club’s manager was secured.
The last barrier remains the fee with both Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace having already been priced out of the race.
Fulham are beginning to make serious moves in the transfer market as they close in on the triple signing of Raul Jimenez, Mohammed Salisu and Calvin Bassey for over £30million.
