Callum Hudson-Odoi could have edged closer to a Chelsea exit on Sunday - putting Liverpool, Manchester United, Barcelona and Bayern Munich on high alert.
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri came under fire from fans after he left Hudson-Odoi on the bench for his side's 2-1 win at Cardiff on Sunday.
The snub came despite the 18-year-old having impressed on his first start for England in their 5-1 Euro 2020 qualifying victory over Montenegro last Monday.
Sarri has continued to overlook youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi despite growing calls to give him his first Premier League start.
Interest in the forward has grown in recent weeks as he has continued to be frustrated by a lack of opportunities at Stamford Bridge.
According to German outlet Kicker, Liverpool have already made contact over the 18-year-old.
He has also been linked with Manchester United and Barcelona, while Bayern Munich attempted to sign him in January but had a £35m bid knocked back.
Hudson-Odoi could be tempted to follow the trail blazed by pal Jadon Sancho , who left Manchester City and is now starring for Borussia Dortmund.
