English giants Chelsea are facing a battle to keep hold of promising Ghanaian youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi amid concerns over game time, Ghanasoccernet understands. 

Hudson, who bagged his first goal in Europa League against PAOK last week, has been attracting interest from some top European clubs but Chelsea are keen to tie him down long-term.

However, the 18-year-old is reportedly stalling on Chelsea's offer of a new five-year deal unless he is given guarantees as to how much game time he will receive.

The U17 World Cup winner with England has made just five appearances for the Blues in all competitions this season and is said to be growing frustrated with his lack of opportunities.

According to the aforementioned source, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund have all been keeping tabs on the England youth star, with Hudson-Odoi aware of how Jadon Sancho has come on since making the move overseas.
