United is believed to be favourite to sign Sancho, ahead of Chelsea, but Blues winger Hudson-Odoi would like to see the 20-year-old at Stamford Bridge.

"We make sure that we're both doing well, obviously he's doing amazing and having a great season," Hudson-Odoi said during an Instagram Live session.

"We're always making sure each other is good. Obviously he's a great player, I love playing with him – he's a great player to play with.

"For England as well we've played all the way through the ages so the link-up has always been there.

"I played against him sometimes in the Youth Cup games or we would play each other for England, the link-up has always been there and we've always loved playing with each other.
