Chelsea are reportedly willing to offload Callum Hudson-Odoi as part of a player-plus-cash deal with Borussia Dortmund for Jadon Sancho.
England international Sancho has been tipped to depart the Westfalenstadion this summer, a year on from a move to Manchester United falling through.
United remain interested in the Manchester City academy product, but The Mirror suggests that Chelsea are also keen and believe that they have the upper hand on their rivals.
It is claimed that the newly-crowned Champions League winners are prepared to offer out-of-favour wideman Hudson-Odoi to BVB to soften the blow of losing Sancho.
Hudson-Odoi, who came close to joining Bayern Munich last year, featured 37 times for Chelsea this past season in a variety of positions down the right-hand side.
Sancho is coming off the back of another solid campaign for Dortmund that saw him score 16 times and register a further 20 assists in all competitions.
