It has been speculated that Chelsea striker Callum Hudson-Odoi may join Chelsea’s west London rivals, the Blues, in summer.
The England attacker reportedly has agreed to personal terms with Fulham and is making even more of an effort to quit the club.
Chelsea is stalling the sale of their winger in an effort to maximize profit.
Several Premier League and Serie A clubs are interested in signing Hudson-Odoi, and Chelsea has previously turned down an approach from local rivals Fulham.
Lazio, managed by Maurizio Sarri, is attempting to negotiate a loan transfer that includes a buyout clause.
Therefore, if Fulham are serious about getting an upfront sum for the 22-year-old, Mauricio Pochettino may be compelled to accept their next offer.
The Evening Standard reports that the forward, who makes over £120,000-a-week at his present club, has accepted personal terms with the west London club, bringing his transfer to Fulham one step closer to completion.
Hudson-Odoi has been keeping in shape for a possible transfer by practicing with the U21 team.
