are in advanced talks with over a deal to sell winger .

The winger is surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge and has been told by that he is not in his plans.

The 22-year-old was once one of the most coveted players in world football, with Bayern Munich bidding around £40m for the playmaker in 2018 before he signed a five-year deal with the Blues.

However, Hudson-Odoi has failed to kick on and he has just a year left on his deal in west London.

Fulham had been keen on signing Hudson-Odoi but failed to agree personal terms.

Subsequently, the Cottagers pushed on with a deal for free agent Adama Traore instead.

That’s opened the door for Forest, with Steve Cooper keen to add more creativity to his frontline having signed Anthony Elanga from Manchester United earlier in the window.

It’s thought discussions for Hudson-Odoi have centred on a permanent deal, but Chelsea would be willing to listen to a full loan with an obligation to buy.
