Borussia Dortmund Eye Move For Their Next Premier League Starlet

Borussia Dortmund Eye Move For Their Next Premier League Starlet

If you're a young English player not getting much football in the Premier League then you might want to move abroad and you could do a lot worse than the Bundesliga. Borussia Dortmund have their eyes on another such player.

Gareth Southgate has done wonders for the England national team, helping them reach the semi finals of the World Cup and UEFA Nations League, but the Three Lions' manager needs help from Premier League managers.

The problem for the national boss is that often his players just aren't getting enough football at club level and that's not good for anyone.

It's long been a dual problem for England that players aren't getting enough game time in England's top tier and concurrently not enough players are moving abroad either.

In recent seasons that has started to change a little with some players moving on loan and others taking a permanent step to join a club on the continent.

Jadon Sancho is the highest profile example with the former Manchester City winger now a regular for Borussia Dortmund and earning a place in Southgate's squad.

Now Dortmund have their eyes on another young talent. According to Goal the Bundesliga leaders want to sign Callum Hudson-Odoi in January.

Manchester United Identify Jadon Sancho Alternative If Deal With Borussia Dortmund Collapses

According to the report Dortmund made an enquiry about using Hudson-Odoi as part of any deal for Christian Pulisic, with Chelsea very interested in the young Dortmund winger.

The league leaders aren't the only ones that want the 18 year old though with fierce rivals Bayern Munich also interested as they try and bring down the age of their forwards.

The teenager has previously impressed in the Europa League but Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri revealed he didn't believe the youngster was ready for the league, saying, "I don't know if he is able for the Premier League at 18, especially in a big team.

"If he's already ready now to make a difference in the team like Chelsea, he would be the best player in Europe in two years."

It seems a massive shame that English clubs continue not to fully back playing young players when clearly, based on Sancho's development, it's something that can work.

Perhaps Hudson-Odoi would be best off moving.
