Fulham have taken a new Chelsea option out of David Moyes’ hands after a late night Callum Hudson-Odoi twist following an alleged offer.

Less than a week ago Fulham and West Ham were the only clubs in the Premier League who had not made a signing for their first team in the summer transfer window.

Fulham then left the Hammers in a league of their own by bringing in striker Raul Jimenez.

The Cottagers are set to add to that with Calvin Bassey on the verge of signing from Ajax and talks ongoing for Mohammed Salisu.

It was reported this morning that West Ham were out of the running for Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher.

Fulham take new Chelsea option out of David Moyes’ hands after late night Callum Hudson-Odoi twist following alleged offer

But while West Ham were holding talks with Chelsea, the Blues reportedly offered David Moyes the chance to sign winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Even if the Hammers were interested in exploring that deal, it already looks off the table.

Because Fulham have taken the new Chelsea option out of Moyes’ hands after a late night Hudson-Odoi twist following that alleged offer.

Sky Sports News are reporting this evening that no sooner had Hudson-Odoi been offered to West Ham than Fulham have swooped.

West Ham’s Hudson-Odoi snub makes sense if Borges is on his way

And the breaking report on Thursday night states Fulham are in advanced talks with west London rivals Chelsea to sign the attacker.

Hudson-Odoi is in the final year of his Chelsea contract and the report states that ‘personal terms will not be a problem’.

It makes sense if West Ham snubbed the chance to bring the winger to the London Stadium.

Because West Ham are already well stocked on the left with Said Benrahma, Pablo Fornals and Maxwel Cornet. And the one signing the Hammers are said to be close to making is that of Man City’s wide left star Carlos Borges.

The 22-year-old Hudson-Odoi had also been linked with Champions League Lazio.
