    Good morning Chelsea fans

    Callum Hudson-Odoi is on the brink of joining Bayer Leverkusen on loan for the remainder of the season.

    The England international is relishing the challenge ahead, saying: “I am very happy to be here.

    “I hope we can win a trophy and go far in the Champions League.”

    The Blues, meanwhile, have reportedly received a £30million offer for Conor Gallagher from Crystal Palace.

    CBS reporter Ben Jacobs tweeted: “There is lots of interest in Gallagher.

    “Palace have made an offer for just under £30m and Everton have been tracking him as well.

    “I think it’s going to be very difficult to get Conor Gallagher on a permanent deal unless the player actually pushes for it.”

    Blues boss Thomas Tuchel claims he'll be more than content with his squad if he fails to make any last-minute additions.

    He said: “Right now, we could need some more players in some positions.

    “But it’s very close to the end of the transfer window and when the first of September comes, I will be a happy coach no matter what happens, and I will try to find solutions, not think about what could have happened.”

    Gordon advice

    Rio Ferdinand has urged Anthony Gordon to stand-up for himself and say, 'I want to leave' to the Everton board to force through a move to Chelsea.

    He said on his Vibe with Five podcast: "Is he worth that? Probably not right now.

    "Could he eventually be worth £60m? Potentially, he has the chance to do that. This kid is the crown jewels at Everton at the moment.

    "They don’t want to see him go because of what that will do for the morale of the football club and the fans in the stadium.

    "It’s difficult but if he wants to go, he’s got to go in and show the balls to go to the manager and the chairman and say ‘I want to leave’ and see how they deal with that."

    "I'm not playing the hard one, it's just that it would be so alien from what I'd expect from him. I just know that's not him.

    "At the same time he's not a robot and all this attention is difficult. I understand that, I was that ambitious young player.

    "That's the beauty of Anthony. Hard-working. He wants to be better. He wants to do what he did (on Saturday), which is score goals, run for this team, and that's why he's a delight to work with. So there was never any idea that Anthony would act that way."

    "It's a strange situation and a situation we don't like. I don't know why we are in this situation, actually. It's like this, and we will have something to think about [over the team selection], or maybe not because it's so obvious who we have left."
