Chelsea ‘make contact’ with Ben White, Hudson-Odoi to stay and Chalobah update

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has plenty of big decisions to make as he continues to build his squad for the season ahead.

The German boss has a solid core of players to work with, but there are still question marks hanging one or two big names.

Tuchel will also want to bring in a few more bodies and is understood to be targeting fresh faces at the back, in particular.

With no incomings of note at Stamford Bridge so far, it could be a busy few weeks ahead of the new Premier League campaign.

Daily Star Sport have news of Chelsea's interest in Ben White, plus updates on Callum Hudson-Odoi and Trevor Chalobah.

Ben White contact

Brighton & Hove Albion star White is a man in demand this summer.

The Seagulls have already rejected a £40million bid from Arsenal for the centre-half, and now Chelsea reportedly want in too.

That's according to Duncan Castles, who told the Transfer Window Podcast the the Blues have made contact with the 23-year-old.

"We’ve told you there’s been interest and a conversation with Manchester City," Castles said.

"I now understand that Chelsea have notified the player of their interest in signing him." Watch this space.

Callum Hudson-Odoi was used sparingly by Tuchel at the end of the previous campaign, sparking rumours that his future could lie away from Stamford Bridge.

But according to transfer know-all Fabrizio Romano, the 20-year-old will remain in west London next season and fight for his place among Chelsea's well-stocked forward line.

Tuchel is known to be a big fan of Hudson-Odoi, and Blues fans will be hoping the pair can hit it off at the start of the new season.

Chalobah update

Chelsea youngster Trevor Chalobah is a target for West Brom, according to Football Insider.

The 21-year-old signed professional terms with the Blues in 2018 but has yet to make a senior appearance for the club, spending time out on loan with Ipswich, Huddersfield and Lorient.

Chalobah's contract doesn't expire until 2023, but transfer supremo Marina Granovskaia might be tempted to cash-in on the star this summer.
